City 8-1 for Champions League glory with Pep

Manchester City's Champions League last-16 exit at the hands of Monaco made it Pep Guardiola's worst ever performance in the competition and bet365 offer 8-1 he bounces back by winning the tournament during his Etihad tenure.

Tiemoue Bakayoko's late header condemned City to an away-goals defeat following a 6-6 draw on aggregate as Monaco won 3-1 on the night to end Guardiola's run of always reaching at least the Champions League semi-finals.

Hills reacted by quoting Guardiola at 1-5 to still be City's boss on the first day of next season and 100-30 to have departed by August 12, while only a top-four finish will see them qualify for next season's Champions League.

A Premier League top-four finish is 1-5 with Betfair and Sky Bet but for now City's European dream is over and they won't be in the bowl for Friday's quarter-final draw with Leicester England's sole representative.

The Foxes had been 11-2 ante-post to progress further than City, Arsenal and Tottenham.

Monaco, 250-1 at the beginning of the group stage, are 18-1 with Betway to win the Champions League in a market headed jointly by
3-1 shots Bayern Munich and Barcelona.

Atletico Madrid are available at 10-1 after a 0-0 draw with Bayer Leverkusen saw them progress to the last eight 4-2 on aggregate.
