Liverpool is continuing to surprise this year, as they are currently sitting in third place in the English Premier League and are on the cusp of reaching the Champions League finals. Nobody expected that type of performance from Liverpool this season.

Liverpool does need to be careful of Roma, however, as Roma is playing with nothing to lose right now and could prove to be a very tough out in the semi-finals.

In the other semi-final game, Real Madrid and Bayern Munich will be battling it out in a contest between two of the world's most popular football clubs. Real Madrid was at risk of complete disaster this year, as they are significantly underperforming in La Liga (currently in fourth place). An early exit from Champions League likely would have led to wide-scale changes, though Cristiano Ronaldo has almost single-handedly propelled the club forward. Now, with an important contest against Bayern Munich looming, Real Madrid could put themselves in a position to potentially win their third Champions League title in a row, which would obviously make their season a successful one.

Finally, here are the odds to win Champions League outright:

Real Madrid, 15/8
Bayern Munich, 9/4
Liverpool, 9/4
Roma, 9/1
