The first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals had not so many surprises. Benfica’s loss to Inter may be one of them, keeping Bianchoneri’s recent poor performances in mind. Milan managed to win against the Osimhen-less Napoli, something not so weird. Real Madrid passed easily through Chelsea though, while Man City took advantage of Bayern’s new managerial hiring.
Let’s see the second-leg fixtures and the recent odds. Chelsea will have to bounce back but the team is not in a position to challenge Real’s superiority in the Champions League. Lampard needs more than a passive game if he wants to achieve something unimaginable at this point. Chelsea to win is at 8/5, Real to win is at 8/5, and the draw is being set at 5/2.
In the other Tuesday 18th April fixture Napoli will try to win against AC Milan after two heartfelt losses. The team proved that scoring without Osihmen may be tough, especially against a group of players that fight hard inside the pitch. The Nigerian attacker will be available though, so Estadio Diego Armando Maradona will set the tone for the team to qualify in the semi-finals. Napoli’s win is at 4/5, Milan’s win is at 7/2 and the draw is at 5/2.
On Wednesday, Bayern needs a miracle to eliminate Man City. The Citizens smashed the Bavarians at the Etihad on a tough night for Upamecano, Tuchel and Sadio Mane. The last one had a serious incident with his teammate Leroy Sane. The club looks disorganised and the newly appointed head coach has to find balance in the locker room in a short time. Bayern’s odds are at 7/5, Man City’s odds are at 6/4, and we find the draw at 13/5.
In the last fixture, Inter Milan will try to capitalise on the first-leg advantage against Benfica. The Portuguese team was the favourite in this matchup, but no one could erase the quality of the Italians. Now, Schmidt and his players will have to risk much, if they want to qualify as one of the best four teams in the tournament. Inter Milan’s odds are at 21/20, Benfica’s odds are at 9/4 and the draw is at 12/5. The Champions League quarter-finals never cease to impress the fans, who hope for some tough battles in the forthcoming week.
