It’s down to the quarterfinals of the Champions League following a thoroughly dramatic knockout stage. Barcelona was 100:1 to advance needing 3 goals with 7 minutes left against PSG but did it. Leicester City overcame a 2-1 deficit in the 1st leg to advance despite struggling in the Premier League this season. Monaco lost 5-3 in the 1st leg but were able to win 3-1 in the return leg to move past Manchester City. This tournament rarely disappoints and we still have a few rounds left. Here are the matchups to progress to the semifinals:
Bayern Munich/Real Madrid
Atletico Madrid/Leicester City

Right now I believe there’s value on betting Barcelona +330 to win the Champions League. They should be able to get through to the quarterfinals and their odds will decrease again. They’re also chasing Real Madrid in La Liga and may be out of the domestic title with a few games left. If that’s the case, all focus for Barcelona will be on winning the Champions League.
Below was written on August 26, 2016 prior to Group Stage:
There were some surprising losses in UCL qualification including teams like Villarreal and Roma, while clubs like Legia Warsaw and FC Rostov were able to qualify at long odds.
3 of the top teams come from Spain’s La Liga, and Sevilla also opened with the 12th best odds of winning the title. Sevilla has won 3 consecutive Europa League titles, which is the tournament for the best teams who do not qualify for Champions League. They are an intriguing team to watch for but likely won’t sniff the title.
Are there any early leans you like, and would you consider placing a future bet this far in advance?
