Chelsea 2/13 to be the furthest progressing British side in the Champions League
Competition: Champions League
Market: Chelsea to progress furthest in Champions League
Odds: 2/13 @ Betfair
After Arsenal found themselves eliminated from the last-16 of the Champions League at the hands of Bayern Munich, Chelsea are looking like the only British side capable of progressing into the quarter-finals this season. They will face Galatasaray at home with the game poised at 1-1.
Manchester City face Barcelona tonight with a two-goal deficit to overturn at the Nou Camp. Manchester United also have a two-nil aggregate score they will need to turn around when Olympiakos come to Old Trafford for their second leg.
Both sides aren’t likely of emerging comfortable victors in their respective games to qualify, and as a result Chelsea are being backed at odds of 2/13 from Betfair to be the British side who make it the furthest in the competition.
Manager Jose Mourinho has long wanted to win the Champions League with his beloved Chelsea side, and now in his second stint at the club it remains a huge aspiration for him to achieve. The ex-Real Madrid boss will do anything it takes and won’t rest until he’s triumphed.
Home advantage should see the Blues through to the quarter-finals, and as a result it’s likely they will be the only British side to have made it.
