April 17, 2012 · 0 Comments
The Champions League semi-final first legs get underway on Tuesday night when Bayern Munich host Real Madrid at the Allianz Arena, as punters pile into the 13/8 price for the home win with Paddy Power.
Bayern Munich have won every game in the competition at home this season, so will feel confident they can upset the odds and take a lead to the Bernabeu for the second-leg.
Munich are now eight points behind Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund, so the Champions League could be their only chance of silverware this season.
Mario Gomez has scored twelve goals in the competition so far this season, just two goals behind Lionel Messi. With Frank Ribery and Arjen Robben providing the service for Gomez, Bayern could prove to be a massive test for Real Madrid.
It’s been eleven years since the German giants picked up club football’s biggest prize. However, with the final being in Munich this year, it could really spur Bayern on to go all the way.
Real Madrid have reached the semi-finals fairly comfortably, remaining unbeaten and dropping points just once.
