Manchester City are clear favourites at 14/5 in bwin’s Champions League winner predictions after holders Liverpool were dumped out by Atletico Madrid.
The Reds overturned a 1-0 deficit from the first leg to lead 2-1 on aggregate four minutes into extra-time, but then conceded three times to lose 4-2.
Atleti have been cut to 12/1 to lift the trophy for the first time, with manager Diego Simeone paying tribute to star keeper Jan Oblak.
“He saves games for us,” declared Simeone. “Messi wins games for you up front and in goal people can win games for you as well – Oblak does that.
“Our fans will remember this and his performance for a long time.”
PSG can be backed at 5/1 for outright glory after beating Borussia Dortmund 2-0 at Parc des Princes to progress 3-2 on aggregate.
Neymar and Juan Bernat were on target in a behind-closed-doors victory, with head coach Thomas Tuchel commenting: “We played as a team and this team is reliable.”
Captain Marquinhos added on the UEFA website: “We showed our mental strength on the pitch and were solid.
“We have to keep that for the games to come. We need to retain that good mentality. Even with our backs to the wall, we showed our values, we have character.”
Leipzig pledge to attack, attack, attack
RB Leipzig are 14/1 in bwin’s Champions League winner predictions after Tuesday’s 3-0 drubbing of Tottenham in Germany saw them cruise to a 4-0 aggregate victory.
Marcel Sabitzer’s brace and Emil Forsberg’s late strike helped 32-year-old Julian Nagelsmann become the youngest manager to take a team to the quarter-finals.
He beamed: “We gave everything and totally deserved to win. Again, the bravery was so important for our game. The building block for our game is zero on the defence.”
Atalanta are available at 18/1 after Josip Ilicic scored all of their goals in a 4-3 triumph at Valencia, with the Serie A club running out 8-4 aggregate winners.
Ilicic declared: “Atalanta aren’t a surprise any longer. We’re doing great things and want to carry on. We want to show we deserve to be here and improve day by day.”
Market leaders City hold a 2-1 advantage over Real Madrid heading into next Tuesday’s second leg at Etihad Stadium, with the Whites now rated at 28/1 to lift the trophy for the 14th time.
