Manchester United's conquerors will have to travel to Real Madrid for the first leg and they are a general 6/4 for the tournament having been available at 5/4 pre-draw.

Real were as short as 15/8 but can now be backed at 14/5 (bwin).

The other semi-final sees Atletico Madrid host Chelsea and the leaders of La Liga have been cut to 100/30 from 5s although 4/1 is still generally available.

Chelsea are regarded as the tournament's outsiders with most bookies although some firms have chalked them up at the same price as their opponents.

The Premier League outfit are a top price of 19/4 (bwin) and are widely available at 9/2.

"It's a really tasty draw and one in which Chelsea will fancy their chances. Bayern and Real have both drifted due to the draw, while the big movers in the outright betting are Atletico Madrid," said Coral's John Hill.

William Hill are also keen to keep Atleti on side and their Jem Maidment said: "Atletico are having a dream season domestically and in Europe and we think Chelsea will have their work cut out over the two legs."

The Leeds firm are expecting Bayern Munich to meet the Spanish side in the final and they make them 4/6 to qualify with Real Madrid 11/10 while Atletico Madrid are 8/11 and Chelsea even money.

Juventus are a top price of 11/10 to win the Europa League having been odds-on before being drawn away to Benfica in the first leg of their semi-final.

The Portugeuse giants have also been pushed out to 4/1 from 5/2 while the other semi-final is an all Spanish affair as Sevilla (9/2 from 6/1) face Valencia (11/2 from 15/2).
