RB Leipzig (53/20) v Atletico Madrid (13/10) - 20:00, Thursday 13th August
In normal circumstances, this could be one of the more interesting matches of the quarter finals. However, with Timo Werner moving to Chelsea already, RB Leipzig have lost a lot of their attacking threat. Youssef Poulson, Ademola Lookman and Marcel Sabitzer can still provide a threat, but it’s nothing that Atletico Madrid can’t deal with. As with any Diego Simeone side, Atletico are an incredible defensively sound side, with quick, counter-attacking strikers. After a shaky start to the season, Atletico actually come into this game on the back of a 11 game unbeaten streak. With great form and an already incredible defence, Atletico should be able to keep Leipzig out and make yet another Champions League semi final.
Barcelona (5/2) v Bayern Munich (1/1) - 20:00, Friday 14th August
This is easily the most exciting match of the quarter finals, and we could argue that the winner of this tie is the favourite of the whole tournament. Lionel Messi is undoubtedly the reason that Barcelona are in this position at all, and he dragged them through a 3-1 win against Napoli last week. He scored a penalty and finished after a mazy run to prove that he is still the world’s best player. For Bayern Munich, they have a superstar of their own in Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker had a hand in all 7 goals that Bayern scored against Chelsea. Along with Serge Gnabry and Thomas Muller, Bayern have one of the most frightening front lines left in the Champions League. With both sides boasting world class strikers, it seems like goals are the only thing we can guarantee in this game.
Manchester City (20/83) v Lyon (21/2) - 20:00, Saturday 15th August
Manchester City will be grateful that Lyon pulled off a huge shock by knocking out Juventus in the last round. Despite Cristiano Ronaldo almost saving the day, Lyon knocked out the Italian giants thanks to an away goal in the second leg. Although Juventus would have been a harder match up for City, Lyon’s young side aren’t to be underestimated, especially given the successes of Roma and Ajax in recent years. For City, it was a comfortable win over European giants Real Madrid that secured their place in the quarter finals. Karim Benzema’s impressive form continued, but a horrible defensive performance gave Real no chance of progressing. One major positive for City will be the performance of Gabriel Jesus in the absence of Sergio Aguero. The Brazilian has a stellar record in Europe, so don’t be surprised if he adds to that tally on Saturday.
