Hi,
According to the image from Flashscore, you can see the 1/8 finals 20/21,

So if City win and Bayern will win too, does that mean they both will meet in the quarter-finals?
And if Atletico win and also Liverpool win, does that mean they both will meet in the quarter-finals?

Thanks

RB Leipzig vs Liverpool

RB Leipzig enjoys good form, and the hosts booked four straight wins in all competitions. They still want to challenge the top spot in the Bundesliga, as the Red Bulls are five points behind Bayern Munich. Julian Nagelsmann’s side will need to host the English champions outside of Germany due to a travel ban. It’s not a comfortable situation for the German side, as RB Leipzig is the best host in the domestic championship. Angelino and the lads are the best defensive team in the league, with only 18 goals conceded. The home side secured its place in the knockout stage in a very tough group against PSG, Manchester United, and Basaksehir. They want another defensively-solid performance before a trip to Anfield.

Liverpool suffered three straight defeats and slipped down from the top four in the Premier League. Despite taking the lead away to Leicester City, they allowed three goals in seven minutes and failed to another loss. The Reds need to tighten up their defense urgently after conceding eight times in the past three games. Alisson made several costly mistakes in the past couple of games that cost the away side important points. Jurgen Klopp is very unhappy with recent displays of his team and will definitely ask for a reaction. Liverpool didn’t have too much trouble finding a place in the eight-finals in the group against Ajax, Atalanta, and Midtjylland. However, the visitors need to perform much better if they want to advance to the next round.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

RB Leipzig is in a much better form, but still, they need to host their rivals in Hungary. We believe Liverpool won’t suffer the fourth straight defeat, and the game could end in a draw.

Goals Market Prediction

Although the home side is very disciplined in the backline, the Reds can score against any team. Therefore, we should expect both teams to find the back of the net.

Draw @ 3.60

BTTS Yes @ 1.55

Correct score 1:1 @ 7.00

Barcelona vs PSG

Barcelona heads to this game after a confident 5:1 victory against Alaves in La Liga. However, the hosts are still eight points behind Atletico Madrid, who also has one game in hand. Barca is on the verge of elimination from the Copa del Rey after a 2:0 defeat against Sevilla. Still, Ronald Koeman’s side is entirely focused on the game against PSG, one of their fiercest rivals in recent years. Everybody still remembers how Leo Messi and the lads turned over their 4:0 first-leg defeat back in 2017. Despite being the most productive team in the domestic league, the hosts have trouble keeping their net intact. Barcelona managed to keep the clean sheet at Camp Nou only three times in the previous 15 matches. They need to be very careful in this game since away goals have a special weight.

PSG tied four victories in a row, and they still fight a great battle in the Ligue 1. The Saints are one point behind the top-placed Lille and two in front of Lyon. Mauricio Pocchetino’s side tightened up its defense lately and conceded just once in those four games. However, the visitors haven’t been too consistent on the road recently. PSG booked only two wins in their last five outings, and they need to do much better to secure a positive result here. Having in mind that Neymar and Di Maria won’t be available for this clash, this challenge becomes even tougher. PSG shouldn’t allow themselves to enter the match at Camp Nou like they did three years ago.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a very exciting game, and both sides have the chance to proceed further in the competition after this tie. However, we believe Barcelona will secure the advantage before the trip to Paris.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides have great attacking potential, and we expect to see them in action. Their head-to-head clashes have always been very efficient, and this one should go over a 2.5 margin.

None of Leipzig's previous 22 games ended without a goal, so this match must at least promise us a goal. The German team is deprived of the home advantage and the neutral space would give Liverpool a small advantage over the Germans. There is a lot of attacking talent in both teams and in combination with their defensive problems, I expect them to find goals, helping both and to have more than two goals.
RB LEIPZIG vs LIVERPOOL @@@ +2.50 Over, odds 1.67

The absences of Neymar and Di Maria are sure to hurt Paris Saint-Germain's prospects of claiming a victory in the Barcelona match and the hosts are likely to be comfortable and relaxed - as opposed to a tired team, which has to deal with injuries. in all areas of the stadium. This does not mean that Pochettino men can not worry the hosts much this week - but they can find the back of the net - but Barcelona is almost undefeated at the moment and Messi has found his form before this meeting, so we give Barcelona a small advantage before the second match of March. I think we will have more than two goals, since both defensive lines have issues, to resist the offensive virtues of both clubs.

Here are the ELO ratings for the Champions League this round. Not sure why the matches tonight aren't listed. We'll have a word with our source and look to get that sorted. Anyway, some nice tips above! @StefanBB has previewed both games well. I actually fear for Liverpool tonight. I think if they don't tighten up at the back then they could be on the wrong end of a heavy defeat. The Barcelona versus PSG is going to be very interesting. Is it the passing of the baton for a new era?

A couple of tricky games to call but I'm going to go for...

RB Leipzig v Liverpool: 20 points on >1.5 home goals at 6/4 and 10 on >2.5 at 21/4, both with Uni (and with 5% boost applied).

Fancy Liverpool to have a torrid time tonight and being able to apply a boost to already standout prices makes plenty of appeal. Could’ve bought their goal rush at 17 or goals at 1.45 but favouring fixed odds (and hoping it proves a better choice than with Man City at weekend).

Porto vs Juventus

The defending Primeira Liga champions are not enjoying a very good domestic campaign. Porto is ten points behind the top-placed Sporting, and to defend the title, they don’t have the right for any mistake. Sergio Conceicao’s side tied four draws in a row, and the latest one came against struggling Boavista. Although Sergio Oliveira and the lads are the most productive team in the competition, the home side needs to tighten its defense. Porto has been pretty confident at the home ground, where they lost only once on ten occasions. They have been particularly efficient at Estadio do Dragao by scoring 23 times. The home side was second in the group with Manchester City, Olympiakos, and Marseille and secured a place in the knockout round without trouble. However, this is going to be a pretty tough challenge for them.

Juventus heads to this match after a defeat against Napoli last weekend. They slipped to the 4th spot in Serie A and missed the chance to get closer to Milan. Andrea Pirlo’s side has been involved in pretty tight games lately. However, the visitors failed to find the back of the net in the last two fixtures. Cristiano Ronaldo and the lads haven’t been too convincing on the road, as they celebrated five times in 11 outings. Juventus is pretty solid defensively, and with 19 goals conceded, they are the tightest defense in the league. The away side topped its Champions League group against Barcelona, Ferencvaros, and Dynamo Kyiv. Although Juve is not among the top favorites for winning the competition, they want to get involved in the very final stages.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Porto has been pretty confident at the home ground this season, but they have not been in good form lately. Therefore, we believe Juventus has the chance to get back home with a win.

Goals Market Prediction

The hosts failed to score just once in the previous 19 games. We believe they can find the back of the net in this game as well.

Sevilla vs Borussia Dortmund

Sevilla has been on an excellent run lately, as the hosts celebrated nine times in a row in all competitions. They have been rock-solid lately, as Julen Lopetegui’s side conceded only once during that run. That streak saw them climbing to 4th place and being only four points behind second-placed Real Madrid, with one game in hand. While Sevilla kept the clean sheet seven times in a row, Youssef En Nesyri and the lads were clinical in the front. The hosts are the second-best home side in La Liga, as they lost only twice at Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The current Europa League winners secured second place in the group against Chelsea, Krasnodar, and Rennes. Sevilla is excellent in knockout stages, and they want to ensure an advantage before the trip to Dortmund.

On the other hand, Borussia Dortmund has been very inconsistent lately. They booked only two victories in the last seven games in all competitions. The visitors sit in the 6th spot in Bundesliga, being six points behind fourth-placed Wolfsburg. Although Erling Haaland and the lads are clinical in front of the oppositions’ net, they have many troubles in the back. Borussia Dortmund managed to keep the clean sheet only three times on the last 20 occasions. They lost four times in their previous five outings, and the visitors need to improve urgently if they want to finish in the top four in Bundesliga. Dortmund topped the group against Lazio, Club Brugge, and Zenit, but they are currently in poor momentum.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Sevilla is full of confidence, and the hosts want to keep up where they left off. We believe they will book the 10th victory in a row.

Goals Market Prediction

Borussia Dortmund seems not to have a clear concept in their approach, despite being productive. Sevilla is very hard to crack, and they should put another disciplined performance. Therefore, we don’t expect to see more than two goals in total.

Atletico Madrid

It is out of expectation that they lose to Levante in last game. It seems that they are more concerned about UEFA Champions League, which have reserved themselves for that. They are the top of Spanish La Liga this season.

 

Chelsea

They have been unbeaten for eight matches in various League and Tournament under the management of Thomas Tuchel. They have a strong squad. It is believed that they will play better with the help of their new coach.

 

Verdict:

The Asian handicap first odd is Atletico Madrid -0.25, high return, and then down to -0, low return. Atletico Madrid have been defeated by Chelsea for three times in the past. Chelsea’s new coach is lack of UEFA Champions League experience. Atletico Madrid will take one point from Chelsea at least.

Lazio V Bayern Munich

Lazio +0.25 AH @ 2.87 Betfair (Exchange)

Simone Inzaghi's side have picked up in recent weeks and are playing with confidence in their game. Lazio are strong when playing at the Stadio Olimpico and I think their playing style can cause Bayern one or two issues here.

Bayern have stuttered recently in the Bundesliga with a stalemate against Arminia Bielefeld followed by a defeat to Eintracht Frankfurt. Muller, Gnabry and Pavard are all likely to miss the Lazio game so Hans-Dieter Flick's team are perhaps not in the best moment.

I think the current Lazio price is too generous considering Bayern's present issues so I will back the home side here on the +0.25 line.

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea

The home side tied two games without winning in La Liga, and they are not only three points ahead of Real Madrid. Nevertheless, Los Colchoneros have one game in hand. Diego Simeone cannot be satisfied with his team’s defense lately. The most disciplined side in the league hasn’t managed to keep the clean sheet seven times in a row. Still, Stefan Savic and the lads conceded the least number of goals in La Liga. Atletico Madrid suffered their first defeat at home last weekend, but this one they need to play in Romania. The hosts finished as the second in their Champions League group behind Bayern Munich. They had to fight for the knockout round in the last group stage fixture but met the expectations. The Spanish side wants to go far in this competition, and a tough challenge is ahead of them.

Chelsea heads to this game after snatching only a point against Southampton. That draw broke their winning streak, leaving them out of the top four in the Premier League. The Blues are two points behind West Ham, and the fight for the Champions League spots will be very exciting. Thomas Tuchel’s side improved its defense lately and conceded only twice in the previous seven games. Mason Mount and the lads improved their displays on the road as well, as they celebrated three times on their last five outings. Chelsea topped its Champions League group against Sevilla, Krasnodar, and Rennes while conceding only twice. The visitors want to get back home with an active result before the decisive clash at Stamford Bridge.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a very close game in which both sides have the chance to win. However, we believe Atletico Madrid will improve and secure the advantage from the first leg.

Goals Market Prediction

Despite this is the clash between two disciplined defenses, we believe both teams will score at least once. Just twice in their seven head-to-head clashes, one of the sides managed to keep its net intact.

Lazio vs Bayern Munich

The hosts got back on the winning track in Serie A last weekend after booking a narrow 1:0 win over Sampdoria. Lazio remained in the race for the top four as they are just one point behind Roma. Biancocelesti secured four victories in the previous five rounds, and they seem to be ready for the toughest challenge so far in the season. Ciro Immobile and the lads are enjoying a great streak at Stadio Olimpico with five straight wins. Simone Inzaghi’s team wants to keep up where it left off against the toughest opponent so far. Lazio ended second in the group stage, securing a place in the eight-finals in the last round against Club Brugge. Although they are underdogs in this tie, it’s going to be an exciting clash.

After winning the FIFA Club World Cup, Bayern failed to win twice. Upon their return from Qatar, the Bavarians drew against relegation-threatened Arminia Bielefeld at home. Last weekend, they lost to in-form Eintracht Frankfurt, and RB Leipzig is just two points behind them. Hans Flick’s side has been clinical in front of the oppositions’ goals, netting 62 times so far. However, Robert Lewandowski and the lads need to get back on the winning track to remain in control of both competitions. The defending European champions don’t seem to have a tough task in the first knockout round, but they need to avoid complacency. Bayern is undefeated in the Champions League for the second season in a row, and they want to keep that streak going.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Although Lazio can surprise any team, we believe Bayern will improve after the last two games. Therefore, we expect the visitors to get back home with a win.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides play very attractive football, and we should enjoy an exciting game. We believe this clash could go over a 2.5 margin.

Atalanta vs Real Madrid

Atalanta is on a good run, as they booked three wins in a row. The hosts lost just once in the last 20 games in all competitions, and they want to continue this excellent streak. Gian Piero Gasperini is on a good track to securing another Champions League qualification. Atalanta sits in 5th place, but the home side is only one point behind Roma. Duvan Zapata and the lads were very convincing against Napoli last weekend, celebrating the 4:2 home victory. Atalanta is the second-most productive team in Serie A, while they tied three home wins. La Dea secured a place in the eight-finals in a pretty tough group against Liverpool, Ajax, and Midtjylland, taking the 2nd place. They went very far last time in this competition, and want to repeat, or even improve their success.

Real Madrid got back in the title race as they are three points behind Atletico Madrid, who has one game in hand. Los Blancos tied four victories despite their injury problems. Unfortunately for Zinedine Zidane, he can not count on some of the leading players like Sergio Ramos and Karim Benzema for this game as well. Nevertheless, a tight defense can encourage the away side fans as they conceded only once in the previous four matches. Real Madrid topped the group against Borussia Monchengladbach, Inter, and Shakhtar, securing the qualification in the final round. It was perhaps the most exciting group in the previous stage, as all teams were hoping to take one of the top two spots. It’s going to be a very tough challenge for Real Madrid, but they want to pick up where they left off.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

It is going to be a very interesting match, and we’ll see how Real Madrid will cope with injuries. We think Atalanta can capitalize on that and secure the advantage before the trip to Madrid.

Goals Market Prediction

Both sides play very attacking football, and we can expect to see an efficient game. We believe this match should go over a 2.5 margin.

Atalanta to win @ 2.30

Over 2.5 FT @ 1.60

Borussia Monchengladbach vs Manchester City

The home side cannot be proud of its recent form as Gladbach picked up just a point from the last three games in Bundesliga. The hosts head to this match after losing to struggling Mainz the previous weekend. Marco Rose’s side cannot keep up the pace in the race for the top four and another Champions League ticket. They are nine points behind in-form Eintracht Frankfurt, and it’s questionable if Gladbach can secure the Europa League qualification. Although Lars Stindl and the lads have been pretty productive, their teammates from the backline should improve. Borussia Monchengladbach succeeded in finding its place among the top 16 clubs in the Champions League in a very attractive group against Real Madrid, Inter, and Shakhtar. A very tough task is in front of them, and the hosts search for a surprise.

Manchester City continued its winning streak last weekend thanks to a narrow 1:0 win away to Arsenal. Raheem Sterling’s 76th-second header was enough to secure them new three points that keep Man City firmly at the Premier League’s top. Pep Guardiola’s side is in a hot run after winning 18 times in a row. From the last nine fixtures in all competitions, the visitors played just twice at Etihad Stadium. Ruben Dias and the lads have been excellent in the back this season, conceding only 15 goals in the Premier League. The Citizens didn’t have any trouble finding a place in the first knockout round in this competition. They topped the group against Porto, Olympiakos, and Marseille, failing to win only once and allowing just one goal to their opponents. The away side is full of confidence, and they are among the hottest contenders for the finals.

Full-Time Winner Odds & Prediction

Manchester City is in much better form, and we don’t expect to see any surprises here. The English side should secure the advantage in the first-leg match without major trouble.

Goals Market Prediction

The visitors have been pretty hard to crack this season, but Gladbach can score against any team. Therefore, we don’t think one of these two teams can keep the clean sheet.

Manchester City to win @ 2.30

BTTS Yes @ 1.60

Correct score 1:3 @ 9.00
