What a vintage weekend it has been for sports fans. The UEFA Champions League returned on Friday night and we were treated to a classic four rounds of golf at the PGA Championship from San Francisco. So, now that we’ve had time to digest it all, we’ve taken a look at the subsequent ripples in our antepost markets.

Outsiders Lyon Continue To Impress

UEFA Champions League

Maurizio Sarri was relieved of his duties almost immediately after Juventus’ exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of Lyon. The French side executed their game plan perfectly in Turin and had backers rubbing their hands when Memphis Depay opened the scoring early on from the penalty spot. That away goal proved significant and we subsequently cut last years 3rd placed Ligue 1 side from 80/1 to 40/1 to go all the way in our antepost market.

City Clear Favourites

UEFA Champions League

9/4

Manchester City held all the cards going into the second leg against Real Madrid after their 2-1 victory at the Bernabau in February. Los Blancos’ captain Sergio Ramos missed the tie due to suspension, and it proved significant here as the Real defence put in a calamitous performance. It could’ve been more for City, and they now lead our antepost market at 9/4 from 100/30.

Ruthless Bayern Will Be Hard To Beat

UEFA Champions League

3/1

With the tie already over, Bayern Munich could have been forgiven for taking their foot off the gas against Chelsea. However, the Germans piled on the misery once again, brushing aside Frank Lampard’s side 4-1. Talisman Robert Lewandowski played a part in all 7 of Bayern’s goals over the 2 legs. They play Barcelona next, and if they show the same ruthlessness as they did here, they will be hard to beat. If you fancy Bayern for the tournament, the 3/1 (from 10/3) on offer just now won’t be around for long if they knock out the Catalans in the next round.

Barcelona Comfortable Against Napoli

UEFA Champions League

8/1

In probably the most one-sided of the Champions League fixtures, Barcelona disposed of Napoli at the Nou Camp with a 3-1 victory. It’s clear that Barca aren’t at their absolute best, however, they are still capable of going through the gears. At 8/1 (from 9s) they represent a bit of each-way value as they approach their quarter-final tie against Bayern Munich.

Morikawa Cool As Ice

PGA Championship

It was first time lucky for Collin Morikawa in the PGA Championship in San Francisco. The youngster produced a marvellous display in the last round, particularly on the back nine to land his first major title. Given that there were a host of big names and major winners chasing him, the way he held his nerve was all the more impressive. He returned a 35/1 winner and our antepost markets have reacted positively. We now have him at 20/1 for the US Open and 22/1 for the US Masters in November.
