Champions League quarterfinals - Bookmaker's view

Domingo Copeland | 12 April, 2018, 00:31

Juventus can be backed at 4/1 (5.00) to win on the night - and at 20/1 (21.00) to make the semi finals - with a stalemate priced at 3/1 (4.00).

The gulf in quality between the two sides was just as evident as in last year's final in Cardiff, and any hope for the Old Lady was even less likely than it had been for the Giallorossi.

The Welsh forward didn't start last season's Champions League final victory over Juventus in Cardiff, and he hasn't been a regular even when fit this season. "Dreams are always good the day before, you can just hope they become a reality later".

Bayern have already wrapped up their sixth consecutive Bundesliga title and are a goal up here going into the second leg. Zinedine Zidane attempted to turn things around in the second half, bringing on Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio for Casemiro and Gareth Bale at the restart.

Paulo Dybala's red card also leaves Juve shorn of one of their most potent attacking weapons for the return match at the Santiago Bernabeu on Wednesday.

When Medhi Benatia committed a foul inside the penalty area on Vasquez in stoppage time English referee Michael Oliver gave the decision without hesitation. This year at home in the Champions League, Madrid have defeated APOEL, Dortmund and PSG while drawing Spurs.

The second leg of this Champions League quarter-final kicks off at 19.45 United Kingdom time (18.45 GMT).
