Big Champions League Matches this Week

Big Champions League Matches this Week

A huge semi-final takes place this week on Wednesday night to decide who takes the remaining place in the Champions League Final of 2015.

There are plenty of bookmaker specials to consider, as the interest in this game at the Bernabeu is massive.  We particularly like the offer from Ladbrokes.

The Champions League second leg semi-final features a Real Madrid side who came from 2-0 down against Valencia on Saturday to make it 2-2 at the final whistle.  In that match, Cristiano Ronaldo missed a penalty as they appear to have conceded the Spanish title to Barcelona.  They will need a much better performance to stop Juventus from progressing to the Champions League Final.

Their opponents are Juventus who have already wrapped up the Italian Serie A, losing just 3 games in the process.  The Italians expect to have Paul Pogba available for their first appearance in a Champions League semi-final since 2003.
