What a draw that was. No one can predict which teams will be members of the Champions League Final in Istanbul on the 10th of June. The Champions League Quarter Finals are set, having all sorts of matchups, from classic European battles to some of the best Italian derbies. Manchester City will have to eliminate Bayern and Real Madrid (if Guardiola’s team manage to qualify), while Benfica counts its chances in the easiest bracket in theory.
Real Madrid had two unexpectedly easy last 16-round legs, crashing Liverpool 6-2 on aggregate goals. Despite conceding twice early in the first game at Anfield, Real scored six times without facing any danger in front of Courtois. Benzema and Vinicius proved once more that they are one of the hottest attacking couples in the world. Chelsea was better than Dortmund, scoring twice at Stamford Bridge. The team looks problematic, but the Champions League is always another topic to discuss. In the first leg, Real Madrid to win is set at 3/4, Chelsea to win is set at 87/25 and we find the draw at 129/50.
The winner will face Manchester City or Bayern Munich. Manchester City threw another German team out of the competition, beating RB Leipzig 7-0 at Etihad. Erling Haaland scored five times, setting the tone for the next rounds. Bayern so no serious enemy on a very frustrated PSG, while every aspect of the team’s attack is ready to provide. Manchester City to win is at 39/50, Bayern to win is at 73/25, while the draw is set at 72/25.
On the Italian side of the next Champions League matchups, the next-to-be champions, Napoli, will face the current Serie A holders, AC Milan. Eintracht Frankfurt couldn’t be competitive against Osimhen, Kvaratshkelia and Di Lorenzo, facing two easy losses. Napoli has already beaten their next rival once in Serie A. AC Milan took advantage of Tottenham’s vulnerabilities, finding the net just on one occasion. AC Milan’s odds are at 42/25, Napoli’s are at 3/2 and the draw is at 223/100.
Inter Milan will face another Portuguese team in the form of Benfica. Inzaghi’s team was lucky enough to qualify against Porto, as the Dragons missed many chances in the second leg. Benfica saw an obstacle versus Club Brugge, a squad that is not at its finest. Counting on Joao Mario and Goncalo Ramos, the Eagles will try to reach the semi-finals. Benfica to win is set at 27/25, Inter to win is set at 61/25 and the draw is at 229/100.
