Soccer Betting Predictions for the UEFA Champions League Quarterfinals & Semifinals

UCL – Round of 16 

  • When: February, 14-15 & 21-22 – March 7-8 & 14-15

Eintracht Frankfurt vs Napoli

Frankfurt, last season’s Europa League winner, is a solid Bundesliga club. Eintracht can hang with teams like Freiburg, Dortmund, Gladbach, and even Leipzig on occasion. 

But Napoli is Serie A’s best team this season. They’ll beat Frankfurt and move to the quarterfinals.

Round of 16 Pick: Napoli

Club Brugge vs Benfica

Brugge got lucky to make it out of their group. No matter who Brugge would have drawn, it would have been difficult to make it past the knockout stage.

In this case, Benfica, the Portuguese Liga’s top team, will end Brugge’s Champions League dreams. Benfica has outplayed FC Porto and Sporting CP in their league. So the club is for real. 

Round of 16 Pick: Benfica

Inter Milan vs FC Porto 

Inter has turned it on in recent matches, but they’re up against it versus Porto. The Portuguese Liga squad has a great history in the Champions League. 

Porto has made it to the quarterfinals seven times. They’ve made it to the semifinals only once, but making it to the quarters has become a regular occurrence.  

Round of 16 Pick: FC Porto 

AC Milan vs Tottenham

It’s easy to go with Milan in this spot. One of the reasons is because Italian players must sit out the World Cup since the Azzurri, for the second straight cycle, failed to qualify for Qatar.

It means, Harry Kane and most of his mates, including Son who plays for South Korea, have to throw down in the World Cup tournament before resuming Champions League play. Still, Tottenham is the overall better squad. The Hotspur are good enough to win the Champions League. So Tottenham gets the call to at least move to the quarterfinals.

Round of 16 Pick: Tottenham  

Borussia Dortmund vs Chelsea

Chelsea made it to the Round of 16, which was the goal. The Blues have almost zero shot of winning the Premier League. So the Champions League is the new goal.

The Blues face an inspired Dortmund side. However, at least on paper, Chelsea is better. 

Round of 16 Pick: Chelsea 

RB Leipzig vs Manchester City 

Leipzig is playing like one of the top teams in the Bundesliga. Man City has had moments where it’s difficult to know how good they are. 

Then again, competition is different in the Premier than it is in the Bundesliga. Leipzig only plays against a few good opponents in the German League while the Sky Blues throw down against United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Liverpool, Chelsea, well, you get the idea. 

Round of 16 Pick: Manchester City 

Paris Saint-Germain vs Bayern Munich 

Talk about a heavyweight bout. Paris is running away with French Ligue 1. Bayern has overtaken Union Berlin and Freiburg for the top spot on the Bundesliga standings. 

Both teams boast top players. Mbappe, Messi, and Neymar for PSG. Mane, Sane, and Muller for Bayern. Both legs should be epic, but Bayern grabs the aggregate victory.   

Round of 16 Pick: Bayern

Liverpool vs Real Madrid 

Pool faces off against the best Champions League team in history. For sure, the Reds are playing much better soccer now than they were earlier in the season.

But Liverpool’s rhythm could become interrupted by the World Cup. Real boss Carlo Ancelotti won’t allow something as small as the World Cup to interrupt El Blanco’s rhythm. 

Round of 16 Pick: Real Madrid
