Champions League 2017/18: Who are favourites to win it?
Apr 13 2018
The draw for the Champions League semi-finals takes place at 1pm on Friday, April 13 in Nyon, Switzerland.
A 5-1 aggregate win over Manchester City sees Liverpool in the last four for the first time since they were drawn against Chelsea in 2008.
That is not allowed and could result in a further suspension for the next match, which will be in the semi-final against Bayern Munich, Liverpool, or Roma. The Bundesliga champions are in the last four, after a 2-1 aggregate win over Sevilla. Liverpool's 3/1 backing places them third most favorable in the UCL while AS Roma are the Champions League underdogs at 10/1.
The Los Blancos were struggling to book their place into the semi-finals of the Champions League after visitor's Juventus scored three goals in a space of sixty minutes to cancel out the three away goals they conceded in Turin.
Lazio will reach their first European semi-final in 15-years if they overcome Salzburg.
The last time a team outside of the big five European leagues won the title was back in 2003-04 when a certain charismatic manager made his name on the worldwide stage with a club from his home country. Zinedine Zidane's men may now be fourth in LaLiga but they remain a formidable force with five-time world player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo as prolific as ever with 40 goals to his name in club football this season.
The defending champions boast a commanding 3-0 advantage over Juventus ahead of their quarter-final second leg showdown in Madrid.
