Man Utd have been cut from 100/1 to just 8/1 with some bookmakers to win the Champions League after toppling PSG with an impressive display of grit, determination and belief on Wednesday night.

<p>Man Utd were priced at 100/1 to win the Champions League after losing 2-0 to PSG in the first leg of their last 16 clash with PSG. They were seen as dead men walking as they headed to Paris for the return leg last night, but the Red Devils pulled off a stunning victory. Marcus Rashford’s 94<sup>th</sup> minute penalty saw them through to the quarter-finals on away goals after sealing a 3-1 victory. The late drama evoked the glory days of Sir Alex Ferguson’s reign and the Scot celebrated with caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after the final whistle was blown.</p><p>Bookmakers responded by massively slashing the odds on Man Utd to win the Champions League. They are now as low as 8/1 with the likes of <a href=";a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356" target="_blank" title="Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a>, <a href=";a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a" target="_blank" title="Betfred">Betfred</a> and Sky Bet, although you can still find a best price of 10/1 at <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18" target="_blank" title="Bet365">Bet365</a>, <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b" target="_blank" title="William Hill">William Hill</a> and a few others. They will head into the quarters surging with confidence after vanquishing a strong PSG side away from home, so that price looks pretty reasonable.</p><p>Man Utd have played 17 games since Solskjaer took over from Jose Mourinho in the dugout. In that time, they have won 14, drawn two and lost just once. That defeat came at the hands of PSG, but it proved to be an irrelevance as they won the tie on aggregate thanks to Romelu Lukaku’s brace and Rashford’s late strike. That makes them the form team in Europe right now, and they are playing with swagger, confidence and belief.</p><p>They have hit a rich vein of form at the perfect time of season, they look full of energy and 10 important players are still to return from injury, including Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. Nobody will want to face Man Utd in the quarter-finals as they are transformed since Solskjaer took over, and fans will be delighted to see them bristling with menace in attack and taking risks whenever they can.</p><p>Tottenham also dispatched Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund in contemptuous fashion to reach the quarters, while Man City are the Champions League favourites and Liverpool could yet triumph over Bayern Munich in a delicately poised draw. England is now the 5/4 (2.25) favourite with <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6" target="_blank" title="Betfair">Betfair</a> to yield the winner of this tournament, with Spain pushed out to 9/4 (3.25) after Real Madrid’s exit at the hands of Ajax.</p>
