Bayern Munich: 6/4 to life the Champions League trophy

Bookmakers Sky Bet make Bayern Munich their 6/4 favourites following Friday's semi-final draw for the UEFA Champions League.

The current holders, who knocked out Manchester United in their quarter-final, were 11/8 with the Leeds firm prior to the draw which saw them pitted against Spanish giants Real Madrid.

Los Blancos are Sky Bet's 11/4 second favourites for the tournament and 6/5 to qualify against Bayern's 8/13. Madrid are, however, expected to take a first leg lead to the Allianz Arena with Sky Bet rating them at 13/10 for the first leg on Tuesday April 22 with Bayern 7/4 shots and the draw 12/5.

The second semi-final sees Chelsea visit the imposing Vicente Calderon home of Atletico Madrid. Atletico are 7/2 to win the tournament - Chelsea are half a point longer - and 4/5 to qualify with Chelsea 10/11 to reach the final.

Sky Bet's Dale Tempest said: "Chelsea were 5/1 before the draw was made so the fact that they've been trimmed slightly suggests they've got a favourable draw.

"But there was never going to be an easy route to the final and Atletico are the slight favourites, with Chelsea given odds of 10/11 to get through to the last two."

Jose Mourinho's men are now 33/1 with the online bookmaker to for a Premier League and Champions League double, while they're 3/1 to win the opening leg in the Vicente Calderon Stadium and 9/4 to draw.

Sky Bet have also priced up the potential finalists with Atletico Madrid v Bayern Munich finale the 2/1 favourite, marginally shorter than a Bayern Munich v Chelsea final at 21/10.

Betting on the winning nation is also available and it's 11/10 about a Spanish side being crowned Champions of Europe.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
