Bayern Munich look like the favourites to spoil Spain’s plans on a majority-La Liga set of Champions League semi-finals this season as the Germans sit as favourites to down Real Madrid in their quarter-final clash.
Not only are Bayern tipped as 5/6 (1.83) favourites to win their first-leg tie with Real at the Allianz Arena next Wednesday, but Carlo Ancelotti’s side are also 4/7 (1.57) to qualify for the last four, while Los Blancos are 5/4 (2.25) underdogs in that regard.
La Liga titans Barcelona, meanwhile, are 1/2 (1.50) leaders to advance past Juventus and reach the last four, and Atletico Madrid also give Spain hopes of boosting their representation. Los Rojiblancos can be found at a price as low as 1/5 (1.20) to beat Leicester City over two legs and qualify for the semis, with the Foxes listed as 13/8 (2.63) dark horses to pull off an upset.
In the fourth and final quarter-final showdown, Borussia Dortmund are rated as 13/19 (1.68) favourites to win their opening home leg against AS Monaco, and Thomas Tuchel’s men are also priced 13/8 (2.63) to move ahead.
