Patrice Evra put the visitors 1-0 up on the night with a stunning strike, but the lead lasted just 22 seconds as Bayern, who are now 5/4 to lift the trophy, struck three second-half goals from Mario Mandzukic, Thomas Muller and Arjen Robben to progress.

Their hopes of outright glory were boosted - in the bookies' eyes at least - by Barcelona's exit at the hands of Atletico Madrid, who edged out their Spanish rivals 1-0 at the Vicente Calderon to earn a 2-1 aggregate triumph.

Koke netted the only goal as Atletico reached the last four of Europe's premier competition for the first time since 1974 and they are now 9/2 to go all the way.

Real Madrid are second favourites at 9/4 having edged past Borussia Dortmund on Tuesday night while Chelsea are regarded as the 5/1 outsiders.

The semi-final draw will be held on Friday at 1100 BST.
