Champions League 'You Bet' - Week 11

Oh dear.

Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear.

We enter Week 11 of Champions League You Bet with just £3.75 in the kitty.

That's £3.75. Three hundred and seventy-five of your English pence.

We started off with £10 back in September, won £3.75 (ironically) in the first week and lost our £1 stake money every week since. The Champions League Final may yet arrive before we finally lose it all, but there's still time to win some money back for our chosen charity by taking part in this week's vote-off.

This Wednesday's main match (as far as we're concerned) is the semi-final second leg between Liverpool and Chelsea, so as usual, cast your eye over these three potential bets and ponder which one you'd bet £1 on if you had to...

Bet A
Liverpool to win
Potential winnings: £3.60

Bet B
Didier Drogba to score first
Potential winnings: £7.00

Bet C
Steven Gerrard to score first
Potential winnings: £11.00

Thanks to everyone who voted this time around. The appeal of a simple 'who do you think will win' bet was obviously right up your street this week, as the winning option was Bet A with 60% of your votes.

That means we'll be hoping for Liverpool to beat Chelsea in today's match, and let's face it, with Liverpool's form in Europe you wouldn't bet against it. Well, 40% of you did, but that's beside the point.

Fingers crossed then, ladies and gentlemen, and let's hope we can prize £3.60 from the tight grip of our chosen bookmaker this week...
