Chelsea 11/1 For Champions League
Despite sealing a place in the semis, the bookies still think the Spanish threat is too great.
Chelsea progressed to the final four as expected on Wednesday night, but have drifted to 11/1 for the Champions League with Bluesquare. With a two-legged semi-final with Barcelona (10/11 bodog) imminent, the challenge for the English side looks as daunting as ever.
The winner of that tie will face either Real Madrid (5/2 PaddyPower) or Bayern Munich (5/1 WilliamHill). A Jose Mourinho dominated final between Madrid and Chelsea is priced up as a 13/2 prospect with Ladbrokes. But there is nothing longer than 5/6 (Coral) on a last two showdown between the Spanish giants.
Bodog are somewhat out on a limb in making Roberto Di Matteo 5/1 to be the next permanent manager at Stamford Bridge. The caretaker’s excellent results have seen him cut with almost every other firm; the Italian is just a 2/1 shot with Ladbrokes.
