Chelsea are now 20/1 to win the Champions League with Sky Bet and 11/4 to reach the semi-finals after losing 3-1 at Paris St Germain in the first leg of their quarter--final clash.

Ezequiel Lavezzi opened the scoring for Laurent Blanc's hosts on four minutes with a sweetly-struck half-volley, but Eden Hazard kept his cool from the penalty spot on 27 to draw Jose Mourinho's men level.

Hazard hit the upright in a lively first half for the Belgian playmaker - but the Parisians gained a first-leg lead to take to London next Tuesday when David Luiz turned a free-kick from Lavezzi into his own net just after the hour mark.

The visitors tried to ensure PSG only had a one-goal advantage as they defended deep in the closing stages - but a magical run from Javier Pastore in stoppage-time saw him jink past three Chelsea defenders before steering a low drive past Petr Cech at his near post to make it 3-1 on the night.

PSG, now 7/1 for outright glory, are 1/4 to get through to the last four.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid look home and dry in their quarter-final with Borussia Dortmund after winning the first leg 3-0 at the Bernabeu.

Carlo Ancelotti's men are as short as 1/100 to progress to the next round and second favourites behind Bayern Munich at 9/4 to become European champions.

Bayern head the market at 6/4 while Barcelona (11/2), Atletico Madrid (12/1) and Manchester United (28/1) are the other sides seeking glory.
