A last minute Valencia penalty denied Brit backers a Champions League double tonight. William Hill offer 11/8 that Manchester United are the furthest progressing British side and depite their draw, Chelsea are 9/4 second favourites.
“English punters will have been disappointed by the collective capitulation of both Manchester City and United, and Chelsea’s last minute concession will have done little to lighten the mood ,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.
Hills are offering 5/1 that there is an all British final in this years Champions League.
All of the pre game talk before the Chelsea game in Valencia revolved around Frank Lampard and he will have done no damage to his (purported) diminishing career by bagging Chelseas only goal at the Estadio Mestalla. Hills go 3/1 about him starting Englands game against Montenegro next month.
Furthest progressing Brit side: 11/8 Man Utd; 9/4 Chelsea; 3/1 Man City; 6/1 Arsenal
