Di Matteo’s men are into 2/1 to reach the final, from 4/1, while Barcelona have drifted to 11/10 from 5/6 to win the competition.
Roberto Di Matteo has been cut to 2/1 (from 3/1) to be named the Chelsea manager on a permanent basis. Jose Mourinho is next in the betting at 5/2.
“Although Barcelona are still the hot favourites to turn the tie around at home next week, a Chelsea win, and more importantly with a clean sheet, has really opened up the competition,” said Coral spokesman Gary Burton.
“Di Matteo has Chelsea playing like a team again and will certainly be given the permanent managers role if he secures them their first Champions League trophy win,” added Burton.
