Champions League Semi-Finals

It is 9/2 that the Champions League final is contested between Real Madrid and Barcelona after the semi-final draw kept the two sides apart. William Hill make Barcelona the 13/8 favourites to win the tournament, slightly ahead of Bayern Munich and Real who are both 2/1. Juventus are the outsiders at 8/1.

“Since the competition started to allow more than one team per country, an El Clasico final has been what all football fans have craved and we are on the brink of it becoming reality,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “Bayern and Juventus are two of Europe’s biggest clubs, however, and they both certainly provide tough obstacles to the dream final.”
