There was no change at the top of the betting in the Europa League as Man City remain Paddy Power’s 5/1 fav to lift the cup in Dublin. They beat Lech Poznan 3-1 in a pulsating encounter which saw the Manchester side flexing some of their squad strength.
Liverpool are still Betfred’s 12/1 2nd favs, despite another draw and the seeming intention of Hodgson to play a weakened side. Porto, who notched a fne 3-1 away win at Besiktas, are 16/1 with Sportingbet as are Italian legends Juventus (with ) but the Old Lady only managed a 1-1 draw in Salzburg.
Holders Athletico Madrid finally got a win and remain a 20/1 chance with Skybet and Zenit made it 3 from 3 to come into 20/1 with the same firm.
Villarreal did not convince with a cagey 1-0 win over managerless PAOK, William Hill putting 25/1 on the Yellow Submarine and perhaps one to watch is Sporting CP, another sound win maintaining their 100% record and they can be backed at 33/1 with Blue Square.
