Manchester City are fancied at 12/5 in bwin’s Champions League winner predictions after being paired with Premier League rivals Tottenham in the quarter-final draw.
The Blues, who crushed Schalke 10-2 on aggregate in the last round, beat Spurs twice in England’s top flight last season and have already claimed victory against them at Wembley this term.
Tottenham impressed when hammering Borussia Dortmund 4-0 over two legs but are now out to 22/1 to lift this trophy for the first time.
On facing Spurs, Pep Guardiola said: “We know each other quite well. We have played each other many times. We have respect.”
The winners of that tie will go on to face either Ajax or Juventus in the semi-finals.
Punters can get 33/1 for the Dutch outfit to claim a fifth European Cup triumph, even though they knocked out holders Real Madrid in emphatic fashion at the last-16 stage.
Ajax travelled to the Bernabeu 2-1 down but pulled off a sensational 4-1 victory in Spain.
Juve also had to come from behind to get past Atletico Madrid, with Cristiano Ronaldo’s Turin hat-trick helping them to progress, and the Italian giants are 3/1 second favourites in the outright betting.
Solskjaer heading back to Nou Camp
In the other half of the draw, Manchester United will take on Barcelona in a repeat of the 2009 and 2011 finals.
The Red Devils lost both of those deciders and can now be backed at 18/1 to go one better this season, having claimed a heroic 3-1 win at PSG in the first knockout round.
However, for United fans seeking positive omens, this tie means interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enjoy another trip to the Nou Camp, where he famously scored the winner for the Red Devils against Bayern Munich in the 1999 final.
Ex-Old Trafford boss David Moyes said: “It’s an incredibly tough draw but a great draw. After beating PSG, you can take anybody on.
“A great occasion, the sort of games that Manchester United are used to and it will be a great night.”
Barca are quoted at 15/4 to give Spain a sixth straight success in this competition.
Former Reds goalkeeper Chris Kirkland was delighted by the draw, telling Sky Sports News: “I’d prefer being at home for the second leg but I’m extremely happy.
“Let’s not disrespect Porto because they got to this stage for a reason, but they won’t be looking forward to that tie.”
