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.

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
