UEFA Champions League: How to watch, schedule, odds, predictions


The UEFA Champions League draw for the quarterfinal and semifinal stage has been made, and some huge clashes have been set up after the first legs of the last eight.

Throughout the 2020-21 tournament I’m revealing my predictions for the upcoming games as well as the latest odds for Europe’s top continental tournament.

[ LIVE: Champions League scores ]

Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea are in the last eight, with Real Madrid, FC Porto, reigning champions Bayern Munich, runners up from last season Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund also there.

Man City beat Dortmund 2-1 in the first leg, Chelsea beat Porto 2-0 in their first leg (in the neutral venue of Seville for both legs) and Liverpool lost 3-1 at Real Madrid as two of the three Premier League teams are in a very good position. Bayern trail PSG 3-2 after the first leg, and the second leg in Paris will be a beauty.

Chelsea and Liverpool will clash in the semifinals if they win their respective quarterfinals.

Due to the COVID-19 variant in the UK, travel restrictions have been on Premier League teams so plenty of their games have been played at neutral venues as UEFA juggles with trying to get all of the games played.

Below is a look at my predictions, the odds for the games for the quarterfinals, plus outright winners, and how to watch and follow all of the fixtures in the USA.
