Chelsea remain bookmaker Coral’s favourites for the Europa League, and have seen their odds trimmed to 4/1 (from 9/2) after being drawn against Swedish side Malmo.
Arsenal are second in the betting at 6/1, with a trip to Belarus lying in wait against BATE Borisov.
Napoli were another side to benefit from a helpful draw and have been cut into 7/1 third favourites.
Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “The big names in our betting before the draw have emerged unscathed and all remain near the top of the betting. A trip to Malmo should be straightforward for Chelsea and we’ve cut the odds on our favourites lifting the trophy in Baku next summer.”
Celtic face a tough game against Valencia and are 66/1 to go all the way.
“The problems are mounting for Brendan Rogers at Celtic and after a defeat to Hibs this weekend a tough draw was the last thing he’d of wanted. It’s hard to see the Scottish Champions making it much further,” added Aitkenhead.
