Atletico out at 7/5 to lift Champions League Trophy
Atletico Madrid upset the odds on Wednesday night by beating Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and progressing to the Champions League final. They are going to have to defy the bookmakers once again if they want to lift the trophy as they go into the final against Real Madrid as lengthy second-favourites.
Diego Simeone’s side are yet to lose in this season’s Champions League and they also top La Liga by four points but they are still a best price of 11/4 with Coral to win Europe’s biggest competition within 90 minutes. They may be even greater value to lift the trophy at any stage of the evening at 7/5 with Bwin.
It is not a great surprise that Real are the favourites given the host of big names they have in their side, however, they are not seen as certainties. Carlo Ancelotti’s side are a best price of 23/20 with Paddy Power to win in the 90 minutes which makes them clear favourites but, quite rightly, gives Atleti an excellent chance.
Last time these two sides met in La Liga the match ended 2-2. For another draw to come about in Lisbon, Sky Bet will offer 23/10.
