We are down to the last four in the Champions League with some of the usual suspects joined by one major surprise package at the semi-final stage. 

In the last round, it was Liverpool, Manchester City, Real Madrid and Villarreal that triumphed over their opponents. With two English sides taking on two Spanish sides, it means the final could be an all-English, all-Spanish or an English vs Spanish affair, with any of the possible combinations of the final likely to provide an incredibly entertaining affair. 

In the betting, it is the all-English affair that the bookies seem to think will provide the final, with Liverpool ($2.20) and Manchester City ($2.25) the favourites to lift the trophy with bet365. Real Madrid are longer at $7.50, while Villarreal are seen as big outsiders at $21.00. 

While the Spanish sides should not be discounted in this one, with Real already accounting for PSG and Chelsea, while Villarreal have secured the scalps of Juventus and Bayern Munich, a Champions League final would be the perfect way to end what has been an incredible rivalry between City and Liverpool this season. 

The pair are currently separated by the slenderest of margins in the league, while Liverpool defeated City 3-2 in the semi-finals of the FA Cup. City are still on for the double, with the league and Champions League within reach, while Liverpool are on for the quadruple, with the League Cup already secured, while they face Chelsea in the FA Cup final and can still win the Premier League and Champions League. 

From a Spanish point of view, it would be a welcomed return to European dominance for Real, who have been the team in the Champions League. However, they have had to watch others lifting the trophy of late after seeing their incredible run brought to an end. 

With the league title edging closer to returning to Real’s hands, the Spanish giants will soon be able to turn their full attention to securing the Champions League once again. 
For Villarreal, the fairytale just gets better and better. While many will cite Liverpool will likely be a step too far for the side, people will have said this about Juventus, and then Bayern, with Villarreal twice proving that they are not a side that allows the ‘bigger teams’ to simply walk over them.

The competition will likely continue to provide goals, shocks, thrills and spills, with the final four crammed full of talent and skill. Liverpool will be desperate to ensure they do not fall to what the bookies see as a shock loss, while City know they will have to be at their best to beat a Real side with the bit between their teeth. 

While the bookies clearly think that Liverpool and City are the sides to back, both Real and Villarreal will have something to say about their English counterparts taking a place in the final in a few weeks time.
