English set for European glory (Not Brexit)

April 19th, 2019 Football, Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release

An all English final in both the Champions League and Europa League are on the cards for the first time in history and Bookmakers fear a big hit.

As it stands, there is a chance all four final sports will be filled by Premier League clubs.

In the Champions League, Liverpool are hopeful of making it back-to-back finals, and they are second favourites – but they have a tough looking task as they face the favourites Barcelona.

The other semi-final sees Tottenham line-up against Ajax, with Spurs favourites to overcome the Dutch giants.

It is 3/1 that we see Liverpool lining up against Tottenham in Madrid on June 1 for the first all English final since 2008.

But whilst we have seen an all English Champions League final before, it has never happened in the Europa League – but now there is a big chance with favourites Chelsea and second favourites Arsenal in separate semi-finals.

Chelsea, who are 11/8 to claim the trophy, face German outfit Eintracht Frankfurt whilst Arsenal take on Valencia.

It is as short as 6/4 that Chelsea take on Arsenal in the final in Baku.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “It is somewhat ironic that in the year of Brexit that we see English clubs looking to dominate in Europe.

“We could very well see an all English final, and that is currently 9/1, but be warned, that price won’t be around for long if the English sides do well in the first legs.

“Indeed, the Bookmakers think that just one team is standing in the way of the all Premier League, and that is Barcelona – who are rated at 13/8 to take the title.”

An All English final – 9/1
