Tito Vilanova’s side were 2-0 down after the first leg but turned things around in emphatic fashion by hammering the Serie A side 4-0 and they now join rivals Real Madrid in the last eight.
Lionel Messi was again an influential figure, bagging a brace at the Camp Nou and Coral quote odds of 13/5 for Barca to be crowned European champions and the Argentine maestro to be the tournament top scorer.
Meanwhile, the La Liga leaders are 7/4 (Coral) to lift the Champions League trophy and it’s 4/1 for the Wembley final to be an all-Spanish affair.
“The Champions League looks to be a battle between La Liga and the Bundesliga, but with Spain already having both Barcelona and Real Madrid in the hat for the quarter-finals and Malaga still in contention to join them, the 8/13 for a Spanish side to lift the Champions League trophy looks great value,” Coral’s Tim Reynolds told Betrescue.
