Real had been the clear third best in the market before the draw was made, but their odds were cut to a best price of 5/2 with bookmaker bet365 due to their last-four opponents being Italian champions Juventus who are available at 9/1 with BetVictor.

That means the other semi-final will be between Barcelona and their former coach Pep Guardiola’s current team Bayern Munich, with the Spanish club at home in the first leg whereas it is the other way around for Real Madrid.

Barcelona are the slight favourites to lift the trophy at 2/1 with bet365, who also quote Bayern Munich at 5/2, while all three teams are separated by just a quarter of a point at BetVictor.

For Juventus, this is the first time they have reached the last four of Europe’s elite club competition since they contested the final in 2003 at Old Trafford and lost on penalties to Serie A rivals AC Milan.

And there is a promising omen for Massimiliano Allegri’s side because that year they beat Real in the semi-finals 4-3 on aggregate, although on that occasion the second leg was at home.

But Juve also have plenty of more recent history against Real, having met the 10-time European champions in three double-headers since then – with the Italians losing only two of those six games, 2-1 and 1-0 at the Bernabeu Stadium.

On the latter occasion, in the 2005 round-of-16, Juventus turned the tie around by winning 2-0 on their own pitch.

As for 2013 champions Bayern Munich, they will be hoping for a much better outcome to their semi-final than when their reign was ended last season by a 5-0 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid, including a 4-0 drubbing on their own pitch.

This time they take on the other Spanish giant, Barcelona, against whom they enjoyed a much happier semi-final experience two years ago when triumphing 7-0 on aggregate before lifting the trophy at Wembley against Borussia Dortmund.
