uefa champions league stadion

As of Tuesday, 16 football UCL teams are fighting in the second legs of the round of 16 for a place in the quarter-finals of the Champions League 20/21. Big teams such as Juventus Turin, FC Barcelona or Atlético Madrid, are already facing elimination.  

The first leg in February seems to have already provided a preliminary decision in some Champions League duels, but there are also many exciting opportunities to keep up the excitement with football betting with EagleBet Sportsbook

Paris St. Germain Favourite To Qualify For The Quarter-Final

For many football fans, a Paris St Germain win in Barcelona itself may not have been a surprise, but the clarity in the 1:4 very likely was.  FC Barcelona will need another miracle against Paris, as they did in March 2017. 

The same applies to Lazio Roma, Borussia Mönchengladbach and RB Leipzig, who each lost their football matches. However, the defeats of Atalanta, Sevilla FC, Atlético and Juventus Turin were more balanced. All of them still have legitimate hope of progressing in Europe’s most prestigious football competition. 

20/21 UEFA Champions League Outrights

After good first legs in the last 16 of the 20/21 UCL, Manchester City and Bayern Munich have unsurprisingly remained the top favourites of the Champions League football competition. They are now closely followed by Paris Saint Germain and Liverpool, who both seem to have already laid the foundations for the quarter-finals. 

Chelsea, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, 3 other winners of the first leg in the UCL, will be a little further away. Despite their success against Juventus, FC Porto are still only considered underdogs. Opponents Juventus Turin are even in the top half of the candidates for Champions League triumph as the only losers of the first leg. 

Lazio Roma and Borussia Mönchengladbach seem to have been written off already, but even the football stars around Lionel Messi are only glaring outsiders for the bet on the winner of the biggest football title in Europe. A bet on the top scorer of the 20/21UEFA Champions League can also be profitable, with the leading scorer unsurprisingly currently seen as the favourite. 

Borussia Dortmund’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland is in illustrious company, with Robert Lewandowski, Kylian Mbappé and Neymar following closely behind, and record scorer Cristiano Ronaldo some way behind. Interestingly for Champions League bettors, Olivier Giroud and Álvaro Morata, both currently in joint 2nd place among UCL goal scorers, are only given the 6 lowest odds.

Champions League 20/21 Round of 16 Second Leg Schedule

The second legs of the UCL Round of 16 kick off on Tuesday 9 March with two narrow football encounters. Juventus Turin will host FC Porto after losing the first leg and Borussia Dortmund will have the task of defending their narrow lead against last year’s Europa League winners FC Sevilla at home. 

Wednesday’s UEFA Champions League matches are between Liverpool and Leipzig, again in Budapest, and Paris St Germain against FC Barcelona. On 16 March, Manchester City faces Borussia Mönchengladbach with a comfortable lead and Real Madrid takes on Atalanta Bergamo. 

The 17th of March then concludes the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 with the encounters of the defending champions of Europe’s most prestigious football competition, FC Bayern against Lazio Roma and Chelsea against Atlético Madrid. All matches will kick off at 9pm (CET). 

Betting Tips For The Second Leg Of The 20/21 Champions League Round Of 16

Borussia Mönchengladbach, for example, may not find a way back to keep the clash against Manchester City open, but a draw could be possible precisely because of the superiority of their opponents and their further tasks this football season. So trust your gut and check our markets even on supposedly decided Champions League matches. It could be worth your effort.
