2021 Champions League Quarter Finals Matches Odds & Picks
- When: Tuesday, April 6 – Wednesday, April 7
Tuesday, April 6th Matches
- Dortmund +499 / Manchester City -243 /
A lot can happen from now until April 6. Based on today’s stats, the Sky Blues offer fair odds at -243. Man City has dominated in every way imaginable. However, City isn’t unbeatable. Rival Manchester United beat the Sky Blues 2-0 on March 7. Dortmund fans have some hope as long as Erling Haaland, who has scored 10 goals during the UCL, steps onto the pitch. Haaland makes Dortmund an overlay at +499. So if you’re betting this early, grab the odds on Dortmund.
UCL Pick: Dortmund
- Liverpool +160 / Real Madrid +143
Liverpool’s Premier League form remains much worse than their Champions League form. Pool looked great beating RB Leipzig in the Round of 16. They could have difficulty in the UCL’s elite eight, though.
Real Madrid is on fire. They’ve won 3 in a row, including beating Atalanta 3-1 on March 16. Again, a lot can happen from now until April 6. But unless Liverpool puts it all together, RM looks like the solid play.
UCL Pick: Real Madrid
Wednesday, April 7th Matches
- Paris Saint Germain +329 / Bayern Munich -163
Paris Saint-Germain played great in the 2-match aggregate versus Barcelona. PSG dominated Barca 4-1. They won the aggregate after a 1-1 draw with Messi and his mates in the second match.
Paris goalie Keylor Navas isn’t on top of his game. He’s scored 2 clean sheets in 8 matches. But Bayern goalie Manuel Neuer hasn’t played much better. Neuer has 2 clean sheets in 6 matches.
PSG and Bayern battled in last season’s UCL Final match. Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain 1-0. PSG is better now than they were last August. The odds constitute a long look at PSG to pull off what would be a big upset.
UCL Pick: Paris Saint-Germain
- Chelsea -119 / Porto +294
Right now, Chelsea is one of the hottest teams among the four most popular club leagues, the Premier, Serie A, La Liga, and the Bundesliga. The Blues haven’t lost since Jan. 19. Chelsea has 11 wins and 4 draws in their last 15 matches.
The Blues should handle Porto rather easily, right? Not so fast. This happens on Porto’s pitch. Also, Porto goalie Augustin Marchesin had a great Champions League until allowing 3 goals to Juventus in the second-leg of their 2-match aggregate.
Porto beat Juvy on the aggregate. Give the Portuguese League squad a chance.
UCL Pick: Porto
