Borussia Dortmund Champions League Odds: Edin Terzic's side 9/1 for UCL glory

Borussia Dortmund are 9/1 to win the Champions League after their thrilling comeback victory over Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals.

In a pulsating contest, Dortmund scored two goals in quick succession to turn the tie in their favour and snatch a 5-4 aggregate victory.

Champions League

Suffering a 2-1 defeat in the first leg at the Wanda Metropolitano, the onus was on Dortmund to harvest the energy of a vociferous Westfalenstadion and take the game to Atletico Madrid.

They did exactly that, with Edin Terzic's side levelling the tie after 34 minutes when Julian Brandt squeezed the ball beyond Jan Oblak and Dortmund were then in front five minutes later, as former Chelsea left-back Ian Maatsen evaded Koke before slamming the ball home from a tight angle.

In response to the deficit, Diego Simeone made three substitutions to inject new life into his Atletico team. The changes worked, with Mats Hummels converting the ball into his own net from a Mario Hermoso header before Angel Correa wrestled the tie back in their favour as he rifled in an effort from close range.

By the time you caught your breath, the match was subjected to another dramatic twist when Niclas Fullkrug levelled the aggregate score with a looping header from a Marcel Sabitzer cross.

With momentum behind them, Dortmund asked further questions of their opponents and when Atletico failed to clear their lines, Sabitzer capitalised with a precise finish from the edge of the box to seal victory.

PSG, who come from behind to beat Barcelona 6-4 on aggregate, stand in the way of Dortmund and a return to Wembley, the venue of their last Champions League final in 2013.

The Bundesliga side are 2/1 to progress, while PSG are the 4/11 favourites to book their place in the final on June 1.

If Dortmund overcome PSG, one of Manchester City, Arsenal, Real Madrid or Bayern Munich will await them in the final. We have a Name The Finalists market available on site, with a Man City v Dortmund showdown priced at 9/2.
