The Champions league has now reached the final eight, and there will be a new Champion following the exit of Real Madrid in the previous round. There are remarkably four English sides left, so they will be hopeful of landing the competition. Many punters have been using the promo codes to bet on Genting as Manchester City are the strong favourites to lift the trophy. Here we cover the upcoming matchups.
Liverpool v Porto
Last season’s runners up Liverpool have progressed through to the final eight following there impressive victory over German Champions, Bayern Munich. This sees them face off against Porto, with the first leg taking place at Anfield. Porto progressed past Roma 4-3 on aggregate, following a very impressive performance in the second leg. Liverpool have been made the 1/5 favourites to reach the final four, and it will certainly come as a major surprise were they to fail to do so. The sides met previously in the round of 16 stage last season, with Liverpool progressing through as 5-0 aggregate winners.
Tottenham v Manchester City
At least one English side will be in the final four as Tottenham have been drawn against Premier league Champions Manchester City. City have been the favourites since the start and are now around 9/4 to go on and win the Champions league. They are very short at 1/6 to progress through, with the second leg taking place at the Etihad. Both sides have been very impressive in the competition, so it sets up for a fascinating match up. The sides last met back in October with City winning 1-0.
Ajax v Juventus
A very interesting clash as Ajax face off against Italian Champions, Juventus. Ronaldo inspired Juventus to progress through 3-2 with a second leg hat trick, and they are now the clear second favourites for the trophy. However, Ajax could be the surprise packages of the competition following their incredible performance in knocking out the defending Champions Real Madrid. This was a 4-2 victory as they progressed through 5-3 on aggregate. They can be supported at 11/4 to pull off another shock, with Juventus currently the 1/4 favourites to reach the final four.
Manchester United v Barcelona
The final blockbuster clash of the quarter finals as Manchester United face off against Barcelona. United are coming off the back of the remarkable victory over PSG following the late decision to award them a penalty, through VAR. They will need to put in a similar display if they are to progress past Barcelona. Barcelona have been very impressive throughout the competition, including the victory over Tottenham in the group stages. They are the 2/9 favourites to progress through, with United a general 3/1 shot. Barcelona are also one of the outright favourites at 7/2, behind Manchester City and Juventus.
