Race for fourth is still on

Liverpool, Manchester City, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur are battling it out for England’s final UEFA Champions League spot.

Thursday 29th April 2010



As Manchester United and Chelsea battle it out for this season’s English Premier League title, an interesting race for fourth spot is taking place below them involving a quartet of teams. With only two games remaining, Tottenham Hotspur currently occupies fourth spot in the English Premier League, a final position that would see the team eligible to compete in next season’s lucrative UEFA Champions League, and is being shown at odds of 4/5 by Ladbrokes.com, ExtraBet.com, SkyBet.com and BoyleSports.com to hold its nerve. In his second year in charge, manager Harry Redknapp has already bettered last season’s points total by 13 and is hoping to take the London-based club back into Europe for the first time since the 1980s. bet365.com lists Spurs at odds of 5/6 to hold on to fourth place this season while Bwin.com is going with 11/13 followed by Betfair.com showing 43/50. Slightly longer, BetDaq.com is offering 22/25 pursued by PaddyPower.com, 888Sport.com, Coral.co.uk, ToteSport.com, BetFred.com, BlueSq.com and StanJames.com with 10/11 and SportingBet.com presenting 19/20. Manchester City is also in the running to end up in next season’s UEFA Champions League with SportingBet.com showing odds of 13/10 on this eventuality. The Blues finished a disappointing tenth last season but new owner Sheikh Mansour Bin Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan has spent money to bring in top coach Roberto Mancini alongside a plethora of talent in hopes of getting into Europe. ToteSport.com, BetFred.com, StanJames.com and PaddyPower.com are currently offering odds of 11/8 on Manchester City finishing in fourth spot followed by ExtraBet.com, BoyleSports.com and Bwin.com with 7/5 and BetDaq.com showing 147/100. Slightly longer, SkyBet.com, 888Sport.com, Ladbrokes.com, bet365.com and BlueSq.com are going with odds of 6/4 while Betfair.com shows 81/50. Birmingham-based Aston Villa is also a member of the chasing pack and will be hoping that the teams above it slip up allowing it to gain the final UEFA Champions League place. 888Sport.com and BlueSq.com list the Villains at odds of 6/1 to finish in the top four this season while BetFred.com, ExtraBet.com, PaddyPower.com and SportingBet.com are going longer with 7/1. For their part, StanJames.com, ToteSport.com and SkyBet.com currently show 15/2 followed by BetDaq.com with 39/5 and Bet365.com, Bwin.com, Ladbrokes.com and Coral.co.uk offering 8/1 while BoyleSports.com lists 9/1 and Betfair.com indicating 21/2. This season’s race for fourth has come about due to Liverpool’s sudden loss in form. Traditionally one of England’s stronger teams regularly involved in the championship race, the Reds have faltered this season under six-year manager Rafael Benitez. Liverpool are being offered at odds of 14/1 by Coral.co.uk, ToteSport.com and PaddyPower.com to finish in the top four this season followed by 888Sport.com, StanJames.com, BetFred.com, SportingBet.com and BlueSq.com with 16/1 and BoyleSports.com, Ladbrokes.com and ExtraBet.com showing 18/1. The Merseysiders have won the UEFA Champions League on five previous occasions with Bwin.com offering odds of 19/1 that the team will be involved in next season’s competition. Longer still, bet365.com shows 20/1 while BetDaq.com is offering 22/1. At the far end of the spectrum, SkyBet.com is offering odds of 25/1 on Liverpool finishing in at least fourth spot this season while punters can get 27/1 from Betfair.com.
