Bayern Munich Seen To Have Easiest Match

Published on April 6th, 2014 3:24 pm EST
The second legs of the Champions League quarter-finals will be taking place this week.

Here are the matches:

April 8th

Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid
Chelsea vs Paris Saint-Germain

April 9th

Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona
Bayern Munich vs Man Utd


Here were the results from the first matches last week:

Man Utd 1-1 Bayern Munich
Barcelona 1-1 Atletico Madrid

PSG 3-1 Chelsea
Real Madrid 3-0 Borussia Dortmund

Of the four matches this week, Bayern Munich is seen as having the easiest match, as they will be playing host to Man Utd at home. As of right now, Bayern Munich is listed at 1.22 to win, while Manchester United is listed at 13.00.

The closest match of the week looks to be Borussia Dortmund vs Real Madrid. Real Madrid won easily in the first match, so they will not be looking to step on the gas in Tuesday's game. Instead, they'll likely be content to lay back and play a more defensive game. A low-scoring match that results in a draw would be just fine for Real Madrid.

The most intriguing match is likely Atletico Madrid vs Barcelona. Atletico Madrid was able to leave Barcelona with a 1-1 draw last week, which will make for a very interesting match in Atletico Madrid this Wednesday. Barcelona is the slight favorite to win on the road, but Wednesday's match should be very close.

Finally, Chelsea is the slight favorite to win against PSG on Tuesday, but Chelsea will need to climb a small mountain to win, as they dropped their first match 3-1 in PSG last week.

Borussia Dortmund, 3.00
