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.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them.

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
