In regards to outright qualification, Bayern Munich trade at a microscopic 1/250 to progress to the next stage of the competition by any means. Arsenal to progress and somehow pull off a famous result – one that would certainly be a blemish on the faces of the Bayern Munich side – is listed at around a 33/1 price right now with some European bookmakers going as high as a 40/1 margin on Arsenal to do the impossible.
Real Madrid have a 3-1 edge on Napoli in their contest and that one, at least seemingly, looks a lot less done and dusted than the Bayern Munich vs Arsenal clash. Despite them already being two goals ahead but still vulnerable to the away goal, Real Madrid will have to field a nearly full strength side for this one unlike Bayern.
Right now, punters will find Real Madrid still trading as the outright favourites to secure the victory here and kick on to the next stage. The best price available at the moment is a 13/10 listing with the majority of bookmakers either going 5/4 or even 6/5.
Napoli are a 2/1 shout to get a result here and they simply need to win by a 2-0 margin and you'll find that they are certainly no slouches and will be coming into this match with plenty of confidence in their ability to get the job done in front of their home fans. The draw here can be backed as high as a 31/10 margin and you'll find that may be more than good enough for Real Madrid since they know that Napoli require the victory here.
The outright qualification odds indicate that Napoli's job looks daunting but is by no means the absolute longshot that Arsenal are trading at. You will find a best price of about 37/5 for the Italian side to get the better of their Spanish visitors – a result that would certainly shock the football public and ensure that Napoli were taken seriously from now on.
Look for Cristiano Ronaldo to be a big part of this contest and he's (unsurprisingly) the shortest price to open the scoring in this match-up with a few bookmakers going as high as a 4/1 margin on the Portuguese sensation to grab the first goal of a very vital contest.
