Champions - Quarterfinals
April 8, 2014
By VI News
The second leg of the Champions League quarterfinals continue on Wednesday.
On Tuesday, Demba Ba scored in the 87th minute to cap a comeback from a two-goal aggregate deficit, and Chelsea defeated Paris Saint-Germain 2-0 Tuesday night to reach the Champions League semifinals on away goals.
After a 3-1 Chelsea loss in the French capital last Wednesday, Andre Schuerrle began Chelsea's comeback with a 32nd-minute goal. Ba entered in the 66th, and the only Parisian on the field stunned his hometown club by evening the aggregate 3-3 in the total-goals series.
Chelsea closed as a minus-140 favorite (Bet $140 to win $100) in the second leg. The 'under' 2.5 goals cashed. In the other quarterfinal on Tuesday, Real Madrid reached the semifinals for the fourth consecutive season with a 3-2 aggregate win following a 2-0 defeat at Borussia Dortmund. Despite the loss, Dortmund closed as a plus-190 (Bet $100 to win $190) home underdog. The 'under' (3) cashed in this game as well.
On Wednesday, Spanish clubs Barcelona and Atletico Madrid will meet for the fifth time. The first four ended in a draw, including a 1-1 decision in last week's quarterfinal matchup from Barcelona.
In the other quarterfinal on Wednesday, Manchester United will look to upset Bayern Munich for a spot in the semifinals. Despite dominating the first leg, Bayern settled for a 1-1 draw but it did net the road goal. The German power won't have Bastian Schweinsteiger (suspension) in the lineup for the second leg but the Red Devils might not have Wayne Rooney (toe) as well.
Below are the second leg odds for Wednesday, plus the updated future odds for the Champions League prior to this week's action.
