Manchester City’s quest for a quadruple is more likely than ever according to bookmakers, who are preparing for a seven-figure payout after they advanced to the semi-finals of the FA Cup.
Paddy Power now make it just 9/2 that Pep Guardiola’s side win the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League after already securing the Carabao Cup trophy.
It’s even more astonishing that they are now odds-on at 5/6 to win a domestic treble – with both prices the shortest any team has ever been for a quad or treble win.
Many punters got on City at 100/1 to land the quad at the start of the season, with the price dropping to single-figures in February following Liverpool’s draw with Man United and their coinciding League Cup win, and the Irish bookies face a seven-figure payout if they do go on to make history.
Elsewhere, title-rivals Liverpool are now odds-on to win no trophies this season (4/7) or 12/1 to win the Premier League/Champions League double.
Spokesman Paddy Power said: “Man City’s comeback victory over Swansea on Sunday had our trading floor sweating, as they edge closer to a historic quadruple this season.
“Their utter dominance against Schalke in the Champions League, alongside United crashing out of the FA Cup and Liverpool’s general lack of silverware means we’re preparing for the worst. This is how it feels to be City, eh?”
