The Champions League is finally back, meaning that the most anticipated matches of the season are set once again. The first encounters take place on the 14th and 15th of February (the rematches are on the 7 and 8 of March) and the next ones are on the 21st and 22nd of February (with the rematches being set on the 14 and 15 of March). Valentine’s day is ideal for a football night of such caliber, as we are ready to watch some fantastic matchups. There is a wide range of Champions League Round of 16 betting odds, with many teams believe in the dream of winning the trophy.
With Liverpool and PSG finishing second in their respective clubs, it would be uncanny not to have some top-notch matches very early in the knockout phase. In the first week of the Last-16 round, we keep our focus on the Paris Saint Germain vs Bayern match, a repeat of the 2020 final, which took place in Lisbon. Bayern was the winner at that time, and PSG, having Messi on its side, would love to take revenge. PSG is favoured at 2.50, Bayern at 2.55 and the draw is set at 3.60.
The Serie A 2021/2022 champion, AC Milan, and the 2018/2019 Champions League finalist, Tottenham, face each other for a chance to reach the quarter-finals of the competition. AC Milan looks horrible right now, conceding many goals, and having also not so many scoring options. At the same time, Tottenham achieved a statement win against Manchester City, in the chase for a Champions League spot. According to the bookies, Rossoneri favoured at 2.55, the Spurs at 2.75 and the draw at 3.20.
On February 15 Club Brugge faces Benfica. The Belgians had a fantastic group stage run, finishing second, in front of Bayer Leverkusen and “Cholo” Simeone’s Atletico Madrid. Benfica sold Enzo Fernandez to Chelsea, but the Portuguese side is ready to accept the gains of the first seat in their group. To achieve this, they managed to beat PSG and Juventus. Despite Club Brugge hosting Benfica, it is not the favourite. Brugge’s odds are set at 3.65, Benfica’s are at 1.95 and the draw is at 3.45.
Last but not least, Dortmund vs Chelsea will be a great chance for both teams to prove their value. Dortmund seems to have found its winning mentality, being currently just 3 points behind Bayern in the Bundesliga standings. Chelsea bought a bunch of new players in the winter transfer market, but all Graham Potter needs is time. With the team currently 10th in the Premier League standings, time will always be an issue. Dortmund to win is at 2.40, Chelsea to win is at 2.85 with the draw being held at 3.20.
