5/2 for an El Clasico final

Barcelona and Real Madrid have each had their price to win the Champions League cut in to 11/8 and 9/4 respectively after being handed favourable draws in the quarter-final, with Sky Bet going 5/2 on an El Clasico final.

Four-time winners Barcelona, who were 13/8, remain the tournament favourites as they’re expected to overcome Paris Saint-Germain, with the French side now massive outsiders at 40/1 to win the competition.

Real Madrid, meanwhile, have been slashed from 3/1 as they’ll fancy their chances of knocking out Galatasaray, who are the longest odds of any of the remaining teams at 80/1.

With three representatives remaining, Spain is thought to be the nationality most likely to produce a winner of the tournament at 4/11 on, with Germany 5/2 to beat them to it as Bayern Munich (9/2) and Dortmund (15/2) remain strong contenders.

football trader Chris Spicer told Football Betting News: “All the money is going on the market’s front two – Barcelona and Real Madrid – but last year’s finalists Bayern are great value to reach the last two again at 15/8.

“Their tie with Juventus (16/1) is probably the most appealing spectacle of the round, while Dortmund will be satisfied at being paired up with 40/1 shot Malaga, so keep a close eye on the Germans.”
