We have arrived at the Champions League knockout stages, and we'll be previewing this week's exciting round of 16 first leg matches!
RB Leipzig vs Liverpool
Tuesday 16th February 2021, 20:00, BT Sport 2
The first leg of this tie will be played at a neutral venue in Budapest, and it's also likely that the return fixture will be at a neutral venue. This is the first time the pair have played each other, although Liverpool have a good record over German opposition with their last defeat being in 2002 against Bayer Leverkusen. Liverpool are in dreadful form at the moment having lost their previous three league games. The Champions League is the last trophy they can realistically win, and it is now their main priority. Meanwhile, Leipzig find themselves 2nd in the Bundesliga after winning three on the trot. They beat Tottenham at the same stage last season and edged out Manchester United in the group stages to get here, will the Germans knock out another English side in this season's competition?
Betting tip: Leipzig to win at 19/10.
Barcelona vs PSG
Tuesday 16th February 2021, 20:00, BT Sport 3
This one is undoubtedly the highest-profile match of the round and a repeat of their unforgettable battle four years ago at the same stage. Barcelona came back from being 4-0 down in the first leg and then managed an incredible 6-1 win at the Camp Nou. Neymar was the main instigator of that comeback, but he plies his trade for the Parisians these days. Unfortunately, PSG will have to make do without him as the Brazilian is out injured for one month. He'll be a huge miss, and Barca will fancy their chances more knowing he won't be there.
Betting tip: PSG to win at 23/10.
Sevilla vs Dortmund
Wednesday 17th February 2021, 20:00, BT Sport 3
Sevilla have been playing excellently as of late as they have recorded five straight wins in La Liga and are fourth in the table. In contrast, Dortmund have lost three from their previous five games in the league in what is turning out to be a forgettable season. Anything can happen in the Champions League, and they can salvage this season with a deep run in the competition. These two sides have only faced each other once, which was ten years ago, and it won't give an indicator of how this tie will go.
Betting tip: Sevilla to win at 13/10.
Porto vs Juventus
Wednesday 17th February 2021, 20:00, BT Sport 2
Despite being giants of their respective leagues, Porto and Juventus are in the chasing pack when it comes to the domestic title. Juve lost to Napoli at the weekend and Porto had to come back from two goals down against local rivals Boavista to snatch a late 2-2 draw. The Champions League is certainly a priority for Porto and Juventus, and the losing manager will be fearing for their job after this tie.
Betting tip: A draw at 85/40.
