Champions League round of 16: the first return legs

08.03.2021

The first games in the round of 16 a month back resulted in some surprises, and the return of these fixtures is shaping up to be something special too. The stakes are high, with qualification in the quarterfinals on the line. That, in turn, means that there’s a lot of awesome betting opportunities!

Some teams have it all to prove, while others are virtually certain of qualification into the next round. One thing, however, is certain: 8 teams play this week, and only 4 will show up again later down the line… Can you predict what will happen? Check out our Champions League betting offer and bet to win!

Juventus – Porto (Tuesday, March 9, 9 p.m.)

In the first leg of this fixture, Porto managed a somewhat surprise victory against Italian title candidate Juventus. The 2-1 result in the reverse of this fixture means that Juve has to win, preferably without conceding a goal, if it wants a change to meet with teams of a similar status. Not that Porto is an also-ran in the Champions League. If the Portuguese manage to score just once, all the pressure will be back on Juventus. We could see a ravenous start from the Old Lady here, with qualification on the line!

Porto to qualify is going for @2.20 at Golden Palace!

Borussia Dortmund – Sevilla (March 9, 9 p.m.)

In a game that turned out another impressive display of talent by Erling Braut Haaland, Sevilla was defeated on its home grounds by the Borussians. It did manage to score twice in the 2-3 outcome 2 weeks back, but with the concession of 3 goals and the prospect of having to tame the Germans on their home soil, Sevilla has all the right to feel jittery. Winning with at least 2 goals without conceding any goals is the mission for the Spanish Europa League specialist. It’s a tough sell, but you never know.

Goalfest like last time around? ‘Totals: Over 3.5’ @2.40 seems tasty!

Paris Saint-Germain – Barcelona (March 10, 9 p.m.)

With the thorough thrashing it received at the hands of the Parisians in the first leg (1-4), Barça needs more than a miracle. A remontada like we saw a few years ago looks impossible. With PSG having the home advantage, it can make the next round simply by dictating the pace. Barça will bring its most nervous football to the pitch, hoping to exploit any slip-up in PSG’s defenses. Such a forecast might win it the match, but not the qualification… Exit Barça, or the biggest upset in Champions League history?

In case you’re wondering: qualification for Barcelona is worth @11.00…

Liverpool – RB Leipzig (March 10, 9 p.m.)

Liverpool will be in a good mood when it hosts RB Leipzig. Its 0-2 victory in the reverse fixture gives the English champion a comfortable lead on its way to the quarterfinals. Despite its best efforts, Leipzig was no match for the reigning Premier League champion. On the other hand, the Reds have been dragging their feet somewhat in their domestic league. With the aggregate score what it is pre-match, it’s hard to imagine any other outcome than a qualification for Liverpool. What will the scoreline be, though?

Liverpool to make the cut in fashion: ‘Half-time/Full time: Liverpool/Liverpool’ is great value @3.15
