Ajax leave City's hopes of European glory in tatters
MANCHESTER CITY'S Champions League hopes are in tatters after they suffered a disastrous 3-1 defeat at Ajax last night to leave them with just one point from three group-stage matches.
City have now won only two of their last 11 away European matches and they are out to 6-1 with Hills to qualify for the knockout phase and 50-1 with bet365 to win the tournament.
Roberto Mancini's frustration in Europe is looking increasingly likely to continue after City's Group D rivals Borussia Dortmund beat Real Madrid 2-1 to go top of the section and make the Manchester outfit's task even more difficult.
It was a bad night for English clubs with Arsenal also crashing to
defeat - the Gunners went down 2-0 to Schalke at the Emirates Stadium - although Arsene Wenger's side are still expected to reach the last 16 and are 25-1 with Hills to lift the European Cup.
Porto eventually came out on top in a topsy-turvy 3-2 victory over
Dynamo Kiev to reward those who had backed them at 4-7, while 3-5
Paris St-Germain obliged more comfortably at odds-on, beating Dynamo Zagreb 2-0.
Malaga edged out Milan 1-0 and are absolutely flying with three wins out of three. They are 33-1 for outright glory. Olympiakos scored an injury-time winner to see off Montpellier 2-1.
