Ron the one to follow at 11/4

Live on ITV: Tues 19.45: Real Madrid (4/6, Hills) are set to exit the Champions League but thanks to Cristiano Ronaldo they can win on the night.

When the draw for the semi-finals of the Champions League, mouths waterered at the prospect of Barcelona facing Real Madrid in the final but after the La Liga pair suffered heavy, first-leg defeats to their Bundesliga opposition the chances of Wembley hosting a special edition of El Clasico are slim to say the least.

Jose Mourinho’s Real were taken apart by Borussia Dortmund’s Robert Lewandowski, who struck four times for the Germans at the Westfalenstadion and Los Merengues must now overturn a 4-1 deficit at the Bernabeu if they are to progress.

Bookies don’t rule them out entirely, Betfred chalking them up at just 4/1 to reach the final while Skybet quote Dortmund at 1/5 to finish the job in the Spanish capital.

In truth though, it’s hard to see them turning things around despite the return of Cristiano Ronaldo who was sidelined for the Madrid derby at the weekend with a thigh injury.

Nevertheless, Real can win the match, an outcome William Hill price at 4/6 and it’s that man Ronaldo that can help them do so at 11/4 (BetVictor) to break the deadlock.

The problem for the hosts is that in their desire to press forward to score goals they’re likely to leave holes at the back and the visitors have the quality to break effectively to cancel out Madrid’s away goal.

It’s perhaps not surprising then that it’s just 1/2 at best via Paddy Power for both teams to find the net on the night and Stan James offer 11/10 about the contest producing more than 3.5 goals.

Combining that goal tally with a home success comes in at odds of 15/8 with bet365 and there are few better bets at the Bernabeu, where William Hill quote Mourinho’s troops at 12/1 to register a 3-1 triumph.

Recommended Bets:
Cristiano Ronaldo to score first – 11/4 (BetVictor)
Real Madrid to win and over 3.5 goals in the game – 15/8 (bet365)
