Barcelona are still 5/4 favourites to defend their Champions League title after a 0-0 draw at San Siro in the first leg of their quarter-final against Milan put them in pole position to advance to the last four.
Despite being denied an away goal by some heroic defending and a little assistance from the officials, who missed what should have been a clear penalty when Alexis Sanchez was felled in the box by Christian Abbiati, Barca are 1/4 favourites to reach the semi-finals.
The Catalan giants are at the same price to beat Milan in 90 minutes at Camp Nou in the return leg and will be confident of using home advantage to full effect.
After all, Barca have won 13 of their 14 matches in La Liga at Camp Nou this season, drawing the one that got away, while scoring 58 goals and conceding just eight in the process.
In the Champions League, the performances of Pep Guardiola’s men have been no less impressive, with three wins – including a 7-1 success over Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16 – and a draw from their four home matches.
Although Milan were the team to spoil Barca’s otherwise perfect Champions League home record this season, the expectation is that the holders will move up a gear and the Italians are 53/20 outsiders to set up a semi-final with either Chelsea or Benfica.

In bwin’s 3Way football betting market, the Rossoneri are available at 5/1 to claim another draw and 17/2 to secure a win in 90 minutes.
Meanwhile, bets are no longer being taken on Bayern Munich to reach the semi-finals after they claimed a 2-0 away success against Marseille in last night’s other quarter-final, as predicted on bwinbetting.com.
Their likely opponents in the last four are Real Madrid, who beat APOEL 3-0 in Cyprus.
The Madrid giants are now 2/1 second-favourites behind Barcelona to win the title, with Bayern third-favourites at 4/1.
Chelsea, the only English club left in Europe, are fourth favourites at 10/1 to lift the famous trophy.
However, their tie is still very much alive ahead of next Wednesday’s quarter-final second leg at Stamford Bridge, although the 1-0 first leg advantage they secured over Benfica in Portugal means they are 2/25 favourites to reach the last four.
