There are currently eight teams left in the running for this season's Champions League title - they are: Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, Monaco, Borussia Dortmund, Leicester and Juventus.
One of the top teams in the world is not going to make it through to the semi-finals, as Bayern Munich and Real Madrid will be meeting in the quarter-finals. With Barcelona in a strange state following their unbelievable comeback win against PSG in the Round of 16, this leaves teams like Atletico Madrid and Juventus with a very real chance of making it through to the finals.
With the resumption of Champions League a few weeks away, let's take a look at the current betting odds for the two Champions League finalists this season:
Barcelona/Bayern Munich, 5/1
Barcelona/Real Madrid, 8/1
Barcelona/Atletico Madrid, 8/1
Barcelona/Borussia Dortmund, 10/1
Bayern Munich/Atletico Madrid, 10/1
Bayern Munich/Borussia Dortmund, 10/1
Atletico Madrid/Borussia Dortmund, 14/1
Real Madrid/Atletico Madrid, 16/1
Real Madrid/Borussia Dortmund, 16/1
Bayern Munich/Monaco, 16/1
Here are the three unlikeliest possibilities in the minds of the bookmakers heading into the quarter-finals:
Juventus/Leicester City, 100/1
Leicester City/Borussia Dortmund, 125/1
Leicester City/Monaco, 150/1
As you can see, Leicester City is the outlier in this Group of 8, as nobody expects that they will be able to advance to the finals. That being said, Leicester City has a history of defying their critics, especially over the past couple of years, so they can never really be fully discounted.
