Earlier today, the draw for the Champions League semi-finals took place.

On Tuesday, May 2nd, Real Madrid will play host to Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their semi-final battle, while Monaco will play host to Juventus.

Real Madrid made the semi-finals after defeating Bayern Munich in extra time, while Atletico Madrid managed to get past the surprisingly resilient side from Leicester City. In the other semi-finals, Juventus shocked Barcelona after winning 3-0 in aggregate, while Monaco managed to get past Borussia Dortmund.


Monaco is the biggest underdog to win Champions League at this point, though the strength of their club can't be ignored. After all, Monaco is currently sitting at the top of French Ligue 1, even ahead of the titans from Paris Saint-Germain.

Here are the full betting odds to win Champions League at this point:

Real Madrid, 13/8
Juventus, 13/8
Atletico Madrid, 4/1
Monaco, 8/1

In the hours after the semi-finals announcements were made, Juventus at 13/8 has proven to be the most popular choice with punters, with Real Madrid at 13/8 following close behind. Both teams will have difficult tasks in the semis, as Atletico Madrid always plays Real Madrid hard, while Monaco has proven to be difficult to beat.

Here are the finalist odds:

Real Madrid/Juventus, 11/10
Juventus/Atletico Madrid, 9/4
Real Madrid/Monaco, 4/1
Atletico Madrid/Monaco, 13/2
