Barcelona may not be ahead of the competition in the race for this season’s La Liga crown, but the Blaugrana remain the favourites to claim the Champions League title as they prepare for a quarter-final clash against Juventus.
Just over a week remains until the quarter-final first legs get underway, and Barca are an 11/4 (3.75) frontrunner to go on and win the tournament, just ahead of Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, who are 3/1 (4.00) heading into their titanic quarter-final meeting with Real Madrid.
Los Merengues aren’t far behind at 5/1 (6.00), although Carlo Ancelotti does look to be the favourite to emerge triumphant against his former club as things stand.
Looking at the other end of the spectrum, Premier League champions Leicester City are unsurprising dark horses at 33/1 (34.00), while free-scoring Monaco could present good value at 16/1 (17.00).
