Champions League 2020-2021: all the matches of the round of 16

Who will win this 2020-2021 Champions League edition? The bookmakers have already indicated the four teams whose chances of reaching the final and winning would be greater, according to the statistics, the precedents and the frequency of the latest editions of this prestigious competition.

The round of 16 of the Champions League

The round of 16 will see four Bundesliga formations compete against each other, including the Champions League holding team, Hans-Dieter Flick's Bayern Munich , Borussia Dortmund and what is becoming the third force for German football: RB Leipzig. Surprisingly, Borussia M'Gladbach also reached the second round , eliminating Antonio Conte's Inter and Shakhtar Donetsk. Spanish football has also brought four formations: Barcelona, ​​Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla.

Now, if Sevilla are still the team that won their umpteenth Europa League last season, we must certainly not underestimate a formation accustomed to the Champions League like Simeone's Atletico Madrid , while despite having reduced chances of victory, Real Madrid and Barcelona, ​​have almost all the statistics and precedents to their advantage to reach at least the semifinals as we can see by following the betting site on the special page dedicated to the Champions League 2020-2021.

It then remains to say about the three Italians: if Juventus finding Porto is perhaps the favorite team, it must be said that it did not go very well for Inzaghi's Lazio, which after 13 seasons returns to play the Champions League, but finds its own path on its own path. the reigning European champions Bayern Munich.

Statistics and predictions are not favorable for the Italians in the field

The coefficient of difficulty is also quite high for Gianpiero Gasperini's Atalanta; the Goddess will have to face the multiple champions of the Blancos of Zidane. Real Madrid may not be the team that we have come to know during the last ten editions of the Champions League, but they are still a very used and comfortable team in this particular type of competition. It remains to be said of the final clash between Lionel Messi's Barcelona and PSG.

The French team is a veteran of the final, which saw it defeated in the final minutes by Bayern Munich. Perhaps one step is still missing to establish itself in a collective that on paper remains one of the strongest in Europe at the moment. Liverpool, after two consecutive finals, played between 2018 and 2019, the year in which the Reds won the competition again, seem to be uninspired during this season, but remain one of the most competitive and strong teams internationally. The matches between Sevilla and Borussia Dortmund are rather balanced, just like for Atletico Madrid and Chelsea.

Rather unprecedented, a bit like Real Madrid-Atalanta, it will be the sida between Pep Guardiola's Manchester City and Borussia M'Gladbach. Let's say that on paper the teams that could reach the quarterfinals should be Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid, PSG, Juventus, Sevilla and Manchester City.

However, it has never been verified that all the blazon and balanced prediction teams entered the quarter-finals, at least according to the unpredictable and anomalous statistics of the latest editions . Suffice it to mention the case of Lyon, but also Ajax itself, Pochettino's Tottenham and so on, where it was often the teams that had been given as favorites for the final victory of the competition at the beginning of the season. We will therefore see how the Champions League will develop this year after the round of 16.
