The last matches from the 1/8 finals of the Champions League were played yesterday and for the first time for a very long period none of the English teams will be among the top eight. However, we have three Spanish, two German, one French, Turkish and Italian team.
Who will win the Champions League this year? If you love ante post betting it is better to do your bets today, as the draw for the quarterfinals will be held tomorrow and the coefficients will be changed.
Barcelona is the bookies’ favourite at the moment which is a bit strange after losing twice from Real Madrid recently. However, those of you who believe that Messi, Iniesta, Xavi and company will win the league this year will get odds of 2.75 proposed by the betting houses.
The proposed odds for Real Madrid is 3.75. Given their wins over Barcelona and Manchester United lately this is my personal favourite to bet, though by May many things can happen.
The third bookies favourite team is Bayern Munich. Obviously, the loss from Arsenal with 0-2 at home hasn’t changed much the betting odds for a possible victory of Bayern Munich in this year’s Champions League. Such bet would provide a coefficient of 4.5. In my opinion, this rate is far too low. Bayern showed that they are vulnerable, although they have a true class potential.
Dortmund and Juventus are the next two teams in line for the battle for the Champions League. The proposal for the final victory of the Germans is 10 and 13 is for Juventus. Frankly, such a bet, especially for Dortmund seems rather exotic.
Oddly, the odds for the millionaires of PSG is 21. I think that if they are lucky in the draw they can manage to the semifinals and from there it is really difficult to say what is going to happen. The players of the French team have the needed class and Zlatan Ibrahimovic is a player who can change the entire match with just one touch.
The last teams in the queue are Malaga and Galatasaray. An eventual victory of theirs would bring profits of 51 multiplied by the betting sum.
We will find out who will win in May. For now we can only assess the odds and chances, hoping to find somewhere the so needed betting value.
