Man City catches a tough draw
Man City (+225) ran away with the Premier League title this season, but have historically wilted in Champions League play, having made the semi-finals just once in the past nine years.
Pep Guardiola’s club has allowed just one goal in eight Champions League games but will be facing Borussia Dortmund (+2500) and Erling Haaland, whose 10 goals lead the competition this season.

Should Man City survive, they’ll face the winner of Bayern Munich (+350) and Paris Saint-Germain (+750), a rematch of 2020 final which the German club won 1-0 last August. The defending champions have scored a ridiculous 67 goals in 19 Championship Games over the past two years but could be vulnerable given they’ve lost twice in the Bundesliga this season.
PSG’s hopes may ride on the successful return of Neymar, who missed the Round of 16 with an abductor injury.
Real Madrid versus Liverpool
On the other side of the draw, 2019 champion Liverpool (+600) faces Real Madrid (+1000), the team it lost to in the 2018 final. Despite their struggles in the Premier League, Jurgen Klopp’s injury-ravaged club has only conceded three goals in eight Champions League games compared to the ten allowed by Zinedine Zidane’s squad.
Whichever underwhelming unit survives will likely match up with Chelsea (+450), who got a lucky quarterfinal draw in Porto (+3300) after the Portuguese club shocked Juventus in the last round.

The Blues are unbeaten in 13 games (all competitions) since German coach Thomas Tuchel replaced Frank Lampard in January, and in addition to drawing the weakest team left in the competition, they will avoid Bayern Munich, Manchester City, or PSG until the final.
At +450 on BetOnline, Chelsea is our best bet to win the Champions League.
