Pep Guardiola’s troops were handed the assignment against the Premier League leaders in Monday’s draw and were quickly cut in the outright betting while the Gunners immediately drifted to 40/1 from 25/1 at BetVictor to be crowned European champions.
Also pushed out, to 18s from 16/1, were Manchester City, who tackle Barcelona in a mouth watering tie but the odds for both Manchester United and Chelsea contracted in the wake of the draw.
David Moyes’s men, who face Olympiakos, are now 14/1 with BetVictor, who rate the Blues at 12/1 to get the better of Galatasaray before going on to win the competition.
in the betting surrounding individual ties, BetVictor price Bayern at 1/4 to see off Arsenal (11/4), it’s 7/4 for City to overcome 2/5 chances Barcelona while United are just 1/5 to progress and BetVictor offer 1/4 about Chelsea defeating Galatasaray over the two legs.
BetVictor’s Spokesperson Jack Milner said, “Manchester City were imperious in their dismantling of Arsenal at the weekend but Barca will be a completely different proposition and Manuel Pellegrini’s men are 7/4 to qualify from the tie and eased to 18/1 (from 16s) to win it outright.”
