The draw for the Champions League Quarterfinal matchups was held this morning and we now know who will be battling it out to make it to the semi-finals of the biggest club tournament in Europe.
Barcelona the team currently listed as the third favourite in the tournament drew Atletico Madrid in what will be an exciting matchup.
Real Madrid, the second favourite, gets Borussia Dortmund, a well coached German squad.
PSG and Chelsea will play in what is considered a tie with no real favourite.
And finally, defending champions Bayern Munich get a struggling Manchester United team in a tie that should result in the German squad moving through.
Champions League Quarterfinal Winner Odds
Now that we know the matchups let’s look at the odds for each team to move through to the semi-finals. All of these odds were taken from Bet365.com.
Atletico Madrid +225
Lionel Messi’s club may be slightly past their prime, but they do still have the talent along with Messi of course to be the favourites in this match up. The first match will be played in Barcelona so the Spanish side will need to build an early lead in this quarterfinal.
Real Madrid -450
Borussia Dortmund +300
Real Madrid are big favourites in this one to knock off the last seasons finalists. The German squad is short on talent in comparison to Real Madrid, but they are very well coached and will be hard to beat.
This will be the one that could really go either way. I see PSG coming out on top to finish off the Premier League teams in the tournament moving forward.
Manchester United +400
Bayern Munich -600
Bayern Munich is even better than last year in my opinion and they now get the easiest quarterfinal matchup of the Champions League tournament. Things are going well for Bayern for a repeat this year.
You may have noticed that we don’t provide a great deal of individual match tips for soccer here at BetOnIt.org. I suggest checking out the tips page at FootballBettingSites.org.uk for tips on the individual matches from this stage. The action gets underway on April 1st.
Champions League To Win Outright
I figured I might as well toss in the outright odds to win the Champions League now that they have changed with the draw. Once again these odds are from Bet365.com:
- Bayern Munich +175
- Real Madrid +333
- Barcelona +350
- PSG +1100
- Chelsea +1100
- Atletico Madrid +1600
- Borussia Dortmund +2500
- Manchester United +3300
As you can see Bayern are favoured to repeat, but Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona are also being given fairly good odds to bring the trophy back to Spain.
