UEFA Champions League Odds & Predictions
UEFA Champions League Odds - 2017 UEFA Champions Predictions
In virtually any other year, Leicester City's comeback from down 2-1 at home against Sevilla or AS Monaco's surge from 5-3 back of Manchester City would have qualified as tremendous reversals. But in a year when Barcelona came from 4-0 down against PSG after 90 minutes and 5-3 down with an away goal to make up just a few minutes before time, all other comebacks are basically dwarfed.
Yes, Barca, a 40 to 1 longshot 90 minutes of competition ago, is now just +240 to win the Champions League, and they went from having the most unfavorable situation to one that is pretty darn favorable starting over against Juventus. Meanwhile, this is a terrible draw for the Old Lady. They were set at +700 to win the UCL before the draw came out that landed them with Barca. Now, they're +1000 longshots to capture the title. This comes a year after being forced into a duel with Bayern Munich in the Round of 16 that Juve took all the way to extra time and darn near pulled off.
Of course, Bayern Munich doesn't want to hear about difficulties with draws. Last year against Juventus was tough in the Round of 16. Being stuck with Real Madrid in the quarterfinals this year when Borussia Dortmund, AS Monaco and Leicester City were all possibilities is borderline unfair. The argument could be made that Bayern and Real are the two best teams in the world at the moment, and the fact that they're going to be forced to play against each other with six other teams still left in the competition with them ratchets up the pressure a ton. That said, neither team thought this would be an easy road through the Champions League, and the fact that one will move on while the other won't be a factor in the semis lowered the odds for a lot of the longshots.
Take Leicester City, for example. Had the Foxes run into Real Madrid, Barcelona or Bayern Munich, they'd be 100 or 200 to 1 to win the UCL right now. That said, last year's Premier League champs who are just struggling to avoid relegation this year, are only +3300 to win the Champions League even though they have a tough draw here against Atletico Madrid. It could have been a heck of a lot worse than this though, and just to think that the possibility is there to avoid all of the best teams all the way to the finale makes it possible that the greatest improbability of a champion in Europe's history last year could have a second coming in the UCL.
It's happening to Barcelona again! The Catalan side fell behind PSG by a 4-0 mark in the Round of 16 in the Champions League before staging the greatest comeback in the second leg this tourney has ever seen. Now, Barca has to figure out how to come back from down 3-0 to Juventus.
To say that Barca isn't coming back from this is an understatement. If not for the comeback against PSG, this would be representing the biggest comeback in the history of this tournament. Gigi Buffon would have to concede at least four times in order for the Old Lady to be knocked out of this tournament, and you can count on one hand how many times he's done that in his entire career and could probably include all of his matches played for the Italian national team as well.
In fact, all of these quarterfinals ties might be already said and done with. AS Monaco and Real Madrid both went on the road and picked up victories, though it should be noted that the Monaco/Dortmund tie has been an interesting one. The French side had three onboard before BVB stormed back just a bit and made things a little more interesting. Considering the fact that the German side was the favorite at the start of this 180-minute clash, we're not putting it past it to go on the road and find a way to eliminate the presumptive French champs.
As far as Real Madrid is concerned, it managed to go to the Allianz and beat Bayern Munich 2-1. The Bavarians aren't finished yet either, but coming on the road and beating Real is a heavy, heavy challenge.
And then there's Leicester City. Had you told Craig Shakespeare that his side was going to come back home against Atletico Madrid just a goal adrift, he probably would have taken it. Opportunity is still striking just as it did against Sevilla, but it's going to take a big offensive effort at the King Power and a perfect defensive day to give the Foxes a shot at heading into the last four.
