Galatasaray will host Real Madrid in the second half of their Champions League quarterfinals match-up later today.

To say that Galatasaray needs to turn in a big performance today would be an extreme understatement. Real Madrid won the first game between the two sides 3-0, which means that Galatasaray will need to turn in an equally strong performance at home just to have a chance of advancing to the next round. Against one of the top clubs in the world, this seems unlikely.

According to the bookmakers, Galatasaray are sizeable underdogs to win on Tuesday evening. Here are the current betting odds for this game:

Galatasaray, 5.00
Draw, 3.75
Real Madrid, 1.67

These odds mean that a successful $100 bet on Galatasaray would bring you a total profit of $400, while a successful $100 wager on Real Madrid would yield a total profit of $67.

A successful bet on a draw, on the other hand, would yield a total profit of $275.

The odds to qualify for the Semi-finals of Champions League are completely lopsided, as you would expect:

Real Madrid, 1.00
Galatasaray, 26.00

These odds are saying, in short, that it would require a miracle for Galatasaray to advance to the next round.


According to the bookmakers, these are the likeliest outcomes of Tuesday's game:

Real Madrid Wins 2-1, 8.00
Draw 1-1, 8.50
Real Madrid Wins 1-0, 9.50

Finally, the odds of some of the more prominent players to score in Tuesday's game:

Cristiano Ronaldo, 1.28
