Soccer Betting: Ancelotti believes that Bayern are the Champions League favourites

Carlo AncelottiSoccer betting fans found out that Carlo Ancelotti, Real Madrid coach, backed Bayern Munich to turn into the first club to win back-to-back titles in the UEFA Champions League.

While Real’s future 10th Champions League title continues to be the Spanish capital club’s number one goal, pay per head sportsbooks saw that Ancelotti played down his side’s chances this season before the second legs of the round of 16.

Ancelotti, pay per head sportsbooks, and many fans that bet soccer believe that Bayern, who were able to defeat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and win the 2012-13 Champions League final, could clinch a second consecutive European title.

In Europe’s premier continental club competition, Milan was the last club to win two straight titles in 1989 and 1990, but soccer betting fans remember that back then it was known as the European Cup.

“The Decima is a big motivation for all of us,” Ancelotti told Sky Sport Italia.

“We have nine (European Cups), we’re all waiting for the 10th and we will do all we can to get it.

“Our rivals? All sides are dangerous. In the quarters onwards all teams are competitive, although Bayern are the favourites.”

Soccer betting fans and price per head services saw that last week, Real beat Schalke 6-1 in Germany, claiming a very big lead before their round-of-16 second leg in Madrid getting underway on March 18.

Ancelotti’s side also made clear improvements in La Liga, going 16 games without a loss in the Spanish top flight to claim first place in the table ahead of Atletico Madrid and Barcelona, and impressing many soccer betting fans along the way.

However, with Real being a point ahead of Barca, the 54-year-old manager and pay per head sportsbooks know that the Spanish title race is not over yet, even though Atletico are two points behind with 12 rounds left, and fans that bet soccer can’t wait to see what will happen next.

“The league is uncertain, the distances are very small and it’s all to play for,” Ancelotti said.
