Champions League Latest Odds: Barca out to 6.4 as punters rush to back Bayern

Can Milan contain Messi for two legs?

"The BBC described Barcelona's performance as 'subdued' - will they really be as quiet again in two weeks' time? Layers are taking a big risk offering 6.411/2 on the 2011 champions. It's a definite back-to-lay for me."

Last year's beaten finalists are clear favourites in Betfair's Champions League winner market after Barcelona suffer a shock defeat in Milan, but are the layers taking a huge risk offering such big odds on Barca?

Barcelona are out to 6.411/2 to win the Champions League after a 2-0 defeat in Milan on Wednesday night. 

Previously the 3.02/1 tournament favourites, Barca are now behind both Bayern Munich (4.3100/30) and fierce rivals Real Madrid (6.05/1) in the betting.

Despite failing to beat Manchester United last week, Real Madrid are still seen as the more likely tournament winners than Sir Alex Ferguson's 2008 champions. The Premier League leaders are another tempting option in the winner market at 9.28/1. Those odds will tumble should United get past Real - they are 2.166/5 outsiders to make the last-eight

Borussia Dortmund round out the teams trading under 10.09/1, with Betfair layers pricing them at 8.615/2 following their 2-2 draw with Shakthar Donetsk in Ukraine. Juventus are 10.5n/a and Paris St Germain 20.019/1

Arsenal are 250.0249/1 to pull off a remarkable comeback in Munich, go all the way to Wembley and lift the trophy.
