Real Madrid and Barcelona are now joint favourites to win the Champions League

Champions League 4 April 2018

Real Madrid's odds were slashed after their 3-0 away win in Turin.

It seems Real Madrid are not content with winning the past two Champions Leagues in a row as they continue their European form by beating Juventus 3-0 in Turin.

This saw the bookies, who had previously been swayed by domestic form, to bump Real Madrid up to favourites along side their arch-rivals Barcelona.

At the time of writing (12:39GMT 04/04/2018) you can find exactly the same odds for both teams to win this year's Champions League.

Real Madrid to win the Champions League 2017/2018 is offered at 3/1 by Coral. Barcelona to win are offered at the same odds with Skybet.

Most other betting sites offer the same odds for both teams, for example Bet365 are offering 11/4 for both teams.

So how can this help you? Well, with a 3-0 away win in their first leg, Real Madrid are effectively through to the semi-finals. Barcelona will play Roma tonight and although they are clear favourites to beat the Italians the odds will change after this match. If, as is expected, they beat Roma in the first leg then Barca's odds to win the tournament will fall slightly and you'll get less bang for your buck if you are backing them.
