Updated UEFA Champions League Odds to Win After the First Leg Semifinals | MyBookie Soccer Preview


Internazionale vs. AC Milan

When: Tuesday, May 16 at 3:00 pm ET
Where: Giuseppe Meazza, Milano, Italy

Inter had been rolling, which is why the 2-0 win over AC Milan doesn’t surprise. The match happened at Giusseppe Meazza. Neither team had an edge.

AC has no real shot of sticking with Inter. Milan is a good team, but Internazionale is better on all three levels, backline, midfield, and at the forward position.

Real Madrid vs. Manchester City

When: Wednesday, May 17 at 3:00 pm ET
Where: Etihad Stadium, Manchester, England

El Blanco carried a 1-goal lead into the second half, but Man City kept at it. Kevin De Bruyne’s excellent shot at the sixty-seventh minute forced a 1-1 draw.

Real must now get by City at Etihad Stadium. That won’t be easy. The Sky Blues had the same strategy, at least getting a draw, in the first leg versus RB Leipzig. Then the Citizens blasted the Bundesliga rival 7-0 at Etihad.

Updated Champions League Final Picks

Top Pick: Internazionale +300

It’s going to be tough to beat Manchester City. However, the odds suggest City is unbeatable and that’s not the case.

Inter Milano is almost as loaded at the forward position as City. Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are playing their best soccer of the season.

De Bruyne is the best mid in soccer. So we can’t argue that Man City has a better midfield than the Citizens. But Inter’s Nicolo Barella is very good.

Also, Cameroon goalie Andre Onana has hit his stride. He’s playing great soccer.

Will Inter beat Man City? Probably not. But at the odds, they’re worth taking a shot to get by the Sky Blues in the title game.

Second Pick: Manchester City -163

Real missed their chance. El Blanco had a goal lead against City. De Bruyne got the equalizer for the Citizens, which means if Real wishes to march to the Champions League Final, they must find a way to beat the Sky Blues at Etihad Stadium.

That could happen. It probably won’t. Pep Guardiola wanted at least a draw at Santiago Bernabeau. He got it. Now City’s skipper is going to unleash the full force of Manchester City’s attack onto Real.

Third Pick: Real Madrid +400

With that being written, if you don’t back Inter or Manchester City, Real is the only alternative left.

The good news is that El Blanco is good enough to beat Manchester City. The bad news is that it will be very difficult to do so at Etihad Stadium. But, again, if you don’t like Inter to win it all and you don’t want to accept Man City’s odds, backing Real is the only bet you’ve got.

Fourth Pick: AC Milan +2800

AC Milan should be a +5000 choice, not a +2800 pick. First, it will be close to impossible for Milan to break Inter’s excellent defense for a single goal much less 2.

Second, if AC Milan pulls off the miracle, they have to beat Manchester City or Real Madrid in the final match. The odds on AC make them an underlay to win it all.
