Bet on UEFA Champions League Semi-FinalsPublished April 25, 2012
Online sportsbooks go crazy as Europe’s best football tournament heads into the last four
The UEFA Champions League, European soccer’s biggest tournament, heads into the long-awaited semi-final stage next week, and as expected online sportsbooks and punters are going crazy over all the possible wagers.
Champs League semis
Bayern Munich faces Real Madrid on April 17 and 25, with the Spanish powerhouse starting as the clear favourite. However, Bayern might be a sort of sentimental favourite, as it has the chance to become the first club to win the UEFA title on its home field since Inter Milan achieved the feat way back in 1965.
Barcelona plays Chelsea in the other semi, on April 18 and 24, and again it is the Spanish side that will start favourite, with many hoping they set up a classic final with their arch-rivals. Barca and their superstar Lionel Messi have been in white-form, dominating both the La Liga and European tournament, and will be very hard to beat here.

Titan Bet is offering odds on the ultimate Champions League winner, with Barcelona leading the way at 1.83, ahead of Real Madrid, 3.30, Bayern Munich, 5.50, and Chelsea, 11.00. Bayern will go into its first leg clash with Real as slight favourite, but Barcelona and Real are being heavily backed to go through to the final.
