4 April 2014, London, UK (Press Release) -- With three of the Champions League quarter-finals delicately poised after the first legs, bookmakers are backing FC Barcelona to reach a record seventh semi-final in a row.

The reigning Spanish champions are 2.14 to win away against La Liga rivals Atlético Madrid (3.20), with a draw available at 3.25. The first leg finished 1-1, with goals scored by Diego and Neymar, and a repeat scoreline in Madrid - taking the game to extra time - is priced at 6.40 by (all odds are subject to change).

Next Wednesday's other game also sees two teams coming into the match level at 1-1 from the first leg, but Bayern Munich (1.25) are strong favourites over Manchester United (11.00) despite being without key players Javi Martinez and Bastian Schweinsteiger.

Chelsea (1.78) are favourites to win their second leg against Paris Saint-Germain (4.30) next Tuesday, however Javier Pastore's late goal means the English side need to win by 2-0 (8.20) or more.

And the final game comes from Germany, where Borussia Dortmund (3.15) suffered a crushing 3-0 defeat away to Real Madrid (2.08), but will still hold out some hope after putting four goals past the Spanish side in last year's competition.

There is every chance that one or more of the games will still be in the balance going into the closing stages, and guarantees late goals won't ruin a successful betting night thanks to the Late Goal Refund promotion.

If a goal is scored in the 88th minute or later, all losing pre-match bets on the match result, correct score or last goalscorer will be refunded if they were winning before the goal went in. Full terms and conditions can be found at

"We have already seen one very late goal in Paris, and the second legs are sure to be fiercely competitive," GR88 blogger Antony Jordan said.

"At this stage of the competition the margins are tight, and one goal in the final minute could change anything, so we're ready for more last-minute drama," he added.
