As enthusiasts explore the list of betting sites in kenya, attention turns to the dynamic world of football, especially the Champions League. This prestigious tournament has seen its share of twists and turns, particularly evident after the completion of the fourth round of the group stage.
At this juncture, six teams have emerged victorious, securing their spots in the playoffs. These teams include Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Inter, and Real Sociedad. Their journey to this point, however, has been marked by fluctuating odds and unexpected outcomes, capturing the essence of football’s unpredictability.
Bayern Munich is down, while Leipzig and Sociedad are even up
After the fourth round of the Champions League group stage, six teams have already qualified for the playoffs, let’s curl our fingers: Manchester City, RB Leipzig, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Inter, and Real Sociedad (without Zakharyan’s help, they would have reached the final before the deadline).
Look at the Odds
Before we start:
- Man City – 3.25
- Bayern Munich – 6.50
- Real Madrid – 9.00
- Inter – 26.00
- Red Bull Leipzig – 41.00
After 4 rounds:
- Man City – 3.00
- Bayern Munich – 4.95
- Real Madrid – 7.40
- Inter – 25.00
- Red Bull Leipzig – 67.00
Curiously, the main favorites are all at about the same level – no one really doubted their exit from the group. But Leipzig and Real Sociedad have even increased their odds. Just between them and Inter, there are still a lot of teams in terms of odds.
For example, even time and time again losing MU has 41.00. And Newcastle, who are last in their group, have 51.00. However, there is a special calculation on the APL teams, their opportunities are noticeably higher than those of Leipzig and Sociedad.
And what do the odds of winning the group look like for the teams that came out of the group? We see such changes:
Before we start:
- Man City – 1.16
- Bayern Munich – 1.58
- Real Madrid – 1.56
- Inter – 1.85
- Red Bull Leipzig – 7
After 4 rounds:
- Man City – 1.01
- Bayern Munich – no odds
- Real Madrid – 1.03
- Inter – 1.50
- Red Bull Leipzig – 10.75
Bayern are no longer counted as they won the group.
- Reigning Champions City rolled over everyone in Group G. Did you really think Leipzig, Young Boys, or Red Star would make Pep go even balder? Before the start, a nightmarishly low 1.116 was given to win the group, it seems everything became clear at the beginning of the fall.
- Leipzig has the maximum possible points, excluding the games with City, but winning the group is not too realistic – they need to crush the English away, and preferably big. It seems that second place will be enough for the Germans.
- Real Madrid will surely win the group in the next round – they are five points ahead of Napoli and are just hosting them. There are hardly any other options here.
The suddenly weakened Benfica have deprived us of an interesting Group D showdown, so Inter and Sociedad will be fighting for first place only between them. They now have ten points each, and no matter how the fifth round ends, everything will be decided in the last round – the Italians will take on the Spaniards.
Six teams out of 16 possible – a bit much after four rounds, but we are not without intrigue in the group. There are still a lot of questions: will MJ get out, who will come out of the trio of PSV-Lance-Sevilla, who will be the third out of the group with Atletico, Lazio, and Feyenoord, how things will work out in Supergroup F, where the victories of AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund have completely confused everything, and will there be intrigue in H, where Shakhtar Donetsk are clinging to a playoff spot with two unexpected victories?
It’s just a pity that the next round is not tomorrow, but only in three weeks. The fifth game day will be held on November 28-29.
