9/2 For Battle Of Britain In Champions League
The Champions League draw is made on Thursday and William Hill are offering 9/2 that there will be a Battle of Britain in the next round with Manchester United facing Celtic. The same price is also available for Arsenal to face Barcelona, while it is 9/1 for an Arsenal/Barca last 16 tie with a Fabregas goal in either leg.
"Arsenal and Barcelona have developed a habit, over the last few years, of facing each other in this competition as well as Arsenal's habit of selling their best players to the Catalan club," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. "It would be no great surprise if that fixture was repeated again."
Both Arsenal and Celtic are odds-on to be knocked out of the competition in the round of sixteen with Manchester United 13/8 to exit at the next hurdle.
Barcelona are the 9/4 favourites to win the Champions League with Real Madrid 10/3 and Bayern Munich 7/1. William Hill are offering 11/4 for an all Spanish final, 20/1 for an all German final and 80/1 for an all English final.
