Barcelona were handed a favourable group in the Champions League as they aim to secure a third title in five years. The Catalan giants have been drawn against Benfica, Spartak Moscow and Celtic. They are now?5/2?to win the tournament.
The toughest group looks to be that of Real Madrid, Manchester City, Ajax and Borussia Dortmund. A group which contains four domestic champions from last season.
Madrid are still expected to progress priced at?7/2?to win the tournament but the draw has seen Manchester City pushed out to?9/1?by Paddy Power, a price that could prove very attractive for punters who believe Roberto Mancini’s side can claim thier first Champions League title.
The three debutant teams remain at huge prices to claim a Champions League victory at the first time of asking.
After being forced to sell key players Santi Cazorla and Solomon Rondon this summer, Malaga are priced at?66/1?after the draw.
They will line up against defending European champions Chelsea, Shakhtar Donetsk and Serie A winners Juventus.
