“The Chaaaaaammmppionnnss, dur dur, doo doo!”
Forgive our singing over at Odds Manager HQ, but we are pretty excitable when it comes to the Champions League.
The cream of the crop in Europe collide in this fantastic competition, with all eyes on the prize of the big-eared trophy in early summer.
May 29, 2021, is the final set for the 2020-21 tournament – COVID-19 dependent – with the Ataturk Olympic Stadium the lucky hosts of the 66th edition of Europe’s premier football tournament.
After an action-packed group stage including the exiting of previous winners Inter, Ajax, Manchester United, and Marseille, we’ve reached the knockout stages with some tasty ties set for February and March.
Bayern Munich are currently the betting favourites at 11/4 with bet365 to retain their crown from last season, taking on Lazio in the last 16 in one of the more favourable ties.
Then comes the English contingent of Manchester City and Liverpool. City are second-favorites at 7/2 with bet365 where Liverpool can be found as long as 8/1 with Unibet to win their second European crown in three seasons.
City play Borussia Monchengladbach whereas Liverpool play another German outfit in RB Leipzig.
That leaves Chelsea from England who under Thomas Tuchel have been priced at 20/1 with BetVictor to win their second Champions League trophy. They face Atletico Madrid in a tie that nobody is calling the Diego Costa derby.
The tie of the round arguably comes between Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. PSG are still in search of an elusive Champions League trophy having spent millions upon millions in their quest to secure one.
Elsewhere Porto play Juventus, Sevilla take on Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid are tasked with the exciting Atalanta team that came so close last season.

Last season saw German champions Bayern Munich scoop their sixth European Cup having seen off PSG 1-0 in the final courtesy of a Kingsley Coman strike.
With the COVID-19 outbreak beginning to affect leagues across Europe in March, half of the round of 16 and all of the quarter-finals and semi-finals were played over just one leg and behind closed doors.
Lyon and RB Leipzig were the beneficiaries of this, reaching the semi-finals unexpectedly, following upset victories in the quarter-finals.
One of the stand-out results came in the quarter-finals as Bayern Munich demolished the five-time winners Barcelona 8-2 inside Lisbon’s Estadio da Luz.
