Competition: Champions League
Market: Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich to draw
Odds: 11/5 @ Ladbrokes
Atletico Madrid welcome Bayern Munich to the Vicente Calderon for the first leg of their Champions League semi-final clash, in a game that may well end up a stalemate. The hosts are notoriously difficult to beat in their own backyard, while Bayern are likely to settle for less in the away leg, so it may be hard to separate the two sides tonight.
Atleti are deemed underdogs over the two legs, but the manner in which they disposed of the holders Barcelona should be taken into consideration. Diego Simeone’s men reached the final of this competition in 2013/14 against all odds, and they’re in good enough form to threaten a repeat.
As for Bayern, the German Bundesliga holders will be more than content to take a draw into the second leg. Head coach Pep Guardiola will back his side against any other European outfit, and would much prefer his side to keep Atletico at an even keel, rather than risk conceding by playing too open.
As a result, Ladbrokes are giving odds of 11/5 for Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich to draw tonight in the Champions League, which will make the tie perfectly poised for the second leg to come next month.
