The UEFA Champions League has a rich history of famous rivalries, clashes, and encounters among the best clubs. A league founded in 1955 has proven its worth and value from time to time. According to football pundits, after the FIFA World Cup, UEFA Champions League is a highly demanded and prized league.
Because only top teams from across the world-renowned leagues like, LaLiga, EPL, Serie-A, etc., can take part in it. Many bettors fancy their chances of winning lucrative deals in the Champions League.
What is happening in the UEFA Champions League?
The first leg of the semi-finals took place between PSG and Man City, and Chelsea and Real Madrid. Let’s first talk about PSG and Man City as it was the most anticipated match of the season. Both were in the form, but PSG were the favorite for being at home.
The odds were in favor of PSG, and they got the lead in the first half. Then it was some magic from Kevin De Bruyne and Riyad Mahrez, who scored two back-to-back goals in a gap of seven minutes. Anyone who betted on Man City would have made some fantastic money as they came back being one down.
Chelsea and Real Madrid took part in their first leg a day earlier. Most experts favored Madrid, as it was on a stronger side competing at home. But fortune favors the brave as Chelsea gave Madrid a hard time in the first UEFA Champions League semi-final. Chelsea went ahead after thirteen minutes, but Benzema had the game tied in the twenty-ninth minute. The match ended 1-1, which should have ended in favor of Chelsea.
