Projected Knockout Stage Odds

Here’s how I project all the Round of 16 matchups. The odds are for both fixtures, so it reflects each team’s chances to advance.

Notes

  • Champions League knockout stage fixtures do not begin until February, so things may change a bit depending on form and injuries.
  • The two most tantalizing fixtures are Barcelona vs. PSG and Atletico Madrid vs. Chelsea.
  • Barcelona vs. PSG has some history, as the last time they met in the knockout stage, Barcelona erased a 4-1 first leg deficit to win on aggregate 6-5

The last time Barcelona faced PSG they pulled off one of the greatest Champions League comebacks of all time 🍿

  • Chelsea’s bad luck continued, as this is the fourth straight year they’ve drawn one of the European giants:

  • All other fixtures seem fairly straight forward with some of the bigger clubs being heavily favored in the Round of 16.

See everyone in February.
