Chelsea crowned Champions of Europe

BetVictor go a standout 20/1 about Chelsea retaining the Champions League after they won a dramatic the final against Bayern Munich on penalties.

The Blues drifted out to 20/1 to lift the trophy after Bayern scored with just eight minutes remaining last night, but Didier Drogba levelled late on to take the game to extra-time, in which Arjen Robben saw his penalty saved.

Roberto Di Matteo’s men then went out to 7/2 after Juan Mata missed then missed their first penalty of the shoot-out, but the Germans were denied by Petr Cech and then the woodwork while Chelsea scored their remaining four spot-kicks to win 4-3.

The triumph not only sees Chelsea win Europe’s premier competition but also ensures their place in it for next season at the expense of Spurs, who will now have to settle for the Europa League – for which they are 10/1 joint favourites to win.

The result means that Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo is now the 4/9 favourite to be handed the reins on a long-term basis with Fabio Capello 3/1 and Harry Redknapp 8/1 to be Chelsea manager come the first game of next season.
