THINGS DID NOT GO AS PLANNED in the Champions League quarterfinals.
PSG showed true grit in pulling out a last minute, come-from-behind victory.
RB Leipzig didn’t let Diego Simeone’s annoying gesticulating garbage soccer get to their heads.
Also, Barcelona were utterly humiliated again and Manchester City bottled in the quarters, so some things actually very much went as planned.
Here’s a look at the Champions League semifinal lines. Matches are this Tuesday and Wednesday at 3pm EST. In the US, you can watch the games on CBS Sports / app.
2019-20 UEFA Champions League semifinal lines
Tuesday, August 18th 3pm EST: RB Leipzig +340 | Draw +290 | PSG -129
Wednesday, August 19th 3pm EST: Lyon +1100 | Draw +575 | Bayern Munich -455
Odds & Ends
Not too much to say about either of these lines. Based on 538 probabilities, Lyon are a little undervalued (especially considering the knockout format) and PSG are a tad overvalued.
Bayern and PSG should advance, setting up are really compelling final. Analytically all season, PSG fits the profile of a Champions League winner. Since the restart though, Bayern have been the best team in the world.
The finals will take place on Sunday, August 23rd at 3pm EST.
