No worries for Real and Bayern

Wednesday sees the conclusion of the Champions League quarter-finals and with both ties all but settled, goals could be the order of the day.

The headline match takes place in the Bernabeu where Real Madrid take on Juventus.

It’s amazing that we are all still surprised by Los Blancos’ prowess in this competition and they were again at their best in Turin, carving out a brilliant 3-0 victory.

Real are on course for an amazing fourth Champions League in five years and are the 23/10 joint-favourites to lift the trophy in Kiev.

Wednesday’s fixture looks pretty much dead from Juve’s point of view and they will have to do without Paulo Dybala due to suspension.

Real captain Sergio Ramos is another absent due to card issues but the lack of belief showed by Massimiliano Allegri’s men last week suggests it should not be an issue.

Looking at the odds, Zinedine Zidane’s men look good to secure a home win to zero at 21/10, while Cristiano Ronaldo is 5/2 to score first and in doing so will become the first player to net 10 times against the same Champions League opener.

In the other match, a home win again looks likely when Bayern Munich take on Sevilla.

The Bavarians are 2-1 up following a thrilling first leg in Andalusia but there is a feeling Los Rojiblancos’ hopes of qualification hinged on winning at home.

Bayern haven’t lost at The Allianz Arena all season and can now focus on the Champions League having wrapped-up the Bundesliga with Saturday’s 4-1 win at Augsburg.

Sevilla, in contrast, were smashed 4-0 away at Celta Vigo to fall out of the European places and Vincenzo Montella may have an eye on domestic matters.

Jupp Heynckes rested players at the weekend and now faces the challenge of keeping his squad sharp with little to play for at home.

Having won this trophy during his last stint in the job in 2013, the veteran coach is seen as the best man to guide FC Hollywood back to European glory and Bayern are 16/5 for the trophy outright.

Wednesday should be a comfortable evening and 23/20 for the home win to zero looks sensible, as does 2/1 for Robert Lewandowski to open the scoring.
