Real Madrid are a best of 9/2 (youwin) to turn their semi-final around when the teams play again in the Bernabeu next Tuesday - their away goal giving them at least some hope. Dortmund are 1/5 to progress to the Wembley final on May 25 with Sky Bet, Coral and Boylesports.
Coral's Tim Reynolds said: "Borussia Dortmund's victory means that Jurgen's Klopp's side now have one foot in the final, but with Real Madrid having scored that ever important away goal, there is still a small glimmer of hope for Jose Mourinho's side."
In the outright betting, Dortmund are widely available at 2/1 following their demolition job on Mourinho's men, although the little-known youwin go 11/5.
Bayern remain odds-on across the board. They are general 4/6 chances.

Lewandowski moved in from 80/1 to 5/1 for top scorer honours at BetVictor - Paddy Power also offer 5s - following his four-goal blast.
Sky Bet trader Chris Spicer said: "Lewandowski was 50/1 to be the competition's top scorer before tonight's game but one of the best individual performances of the season have seen his odds tumble to 3/1. He is now on 10 for the tournament one behind Cristiano Ronaldo (2/9).
"Dortmund perhaps outdid their rivals Bayern's performance and an all-German final looks nailed on now."
