Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid to reach the final
Odds: 5/6 @ William Hill

Atletico Madrid are favourites to win their Champions League semi-final first leg against Chelsea tonight, with the Spaniards also hoping to reach the final of the prestigious tournament. They have been in fantastic form in their respective league as well as in Europe – winning eight La Liga games in a row, while still unbeaten in the Champions League.

William Hill are giving odds of 5/6 to Atletico to progress to the final where they will face either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich. Atletico’s biggest strength has been their defensive record. Diego Simeone’s side have shipped just one goal in their last eight league matches, while conceding only five goals in their entire Champions League campaign.

Madrid haven’t conceded more than one goal in a game in Europe, and they boast the best defensive record than any of their La Liga compatriots too. A slim victory at home to Chelsea is what appears to be on the cards, but can Atletico produce over two legs to make the Champions League final?
