8 European football teams are still left when it comes to the first two duels in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League 20/21 on Tuesday. Some of the big names, such as Juventus Turin, FC Barcelona or Atlético Madrid, were eliminated in the round of 16, while Inter Milan and Manchester United were already knocked out in the group stage.
The first legs promise balanced matches and therefore also excitement as well as many opportunities with football betting to keep the entertainment at the encounters which makes it harder to make some 20/21 UCL predictions.

20/21 UEFA Champions League Outrights
Manchester City continues their run of success in the Premier League and had little trouble against Borussia Mönchengladbach in the round of 16 in Europe’s elite football competition.
This also means that the Citizens are still considered top favourites to win the Champions League for WettenTips sports betting specialists. In addition to the defending champions Bayern Munich, football betting enthusiasts might be interested to know that Chelsea are among the top 3 in outrights.
Unsurprisingly, the quarter-final opponents of Manchester City and Chelsea, Dortmund and FC Porto, are at the other end. Even the most optimistic bettors will only see an underdog chance with the Portuguese team when it comes to Champions League Quarter-finals predictions.
Outrights bets can be a profitable alternative, especially if you are patient and have the right instinct. For example, the record winner of the Champions League and one of the most renowned football teams in the world, Real Madrid, can be a promising bet, as they are not currently considered the top favourite to win making them a recommended secondary bet.
1st Leg Of The 20/21 UCL Quarter-Finals Predictions
The four quarter-final clashes in Europe’s most prestigious football competition feature two very evenly-matched fixtures, Real Madrid vs Liverpool, the rematch of the 2018 final, and Bayern Munich vs Paris St Germain, the 2020 UCL final, and the betting odds reflect this.
Manchester City vs Dortmund and FC Porto vs Chelsea, on the other hand, have very clear favourites and underdogs, but safe bets no longer seem to exist at this level, even for experts trying to make predictions for the 20/21 Champions League Quarter-Finals. Perhaps it is worth exploring other football betting markets for supposedly somewhat one-sided games.
For example, will the current top scorer of UCL 20/21 Erling Haaland cause a surprise in the Champion League quarter-finals match against his father’s former club? The Norwegian has already contributed 10 goals for his football team and may once again be the decisive factor in Borussia Dortmund’s squad. Even though he is not the favourite to win the title according to our 20/21 Champions League predictions, he might be a good bet to make.
However, the top scorer of last year’s Champions League season, Robert Lewandowski, will be absent for FC Bayern due to injury, at least for the first leg of the UCL quarter-finals against Paris SG, which you should also consider when placing your bets.
