Down to the last 4 and with many teams expected to go further losing out, it could be the most open competition in a long time!
Predictions in the group stages were ok this season as Over 2.5 goals was a frequent winner in most game weeks. Looking ahead to the fixture list it’s possible that this trait may continue as the worlds best teams and players are hoping to carry their form in to the knock out stage.

Wed 8th April
Ajax v Spurs – Over 2.5 Goals

Looking at the betting odds for the eventual winner, it’s Barcelona that now take favouritism at just 9/4. Bookies trimmed Barca’s price right in after their away victory at Man Utd.
Juventus and Man City sit in joint second with odds of 10/3. Juventus look like they will be progressing but City need to come from a 1 nil deficit if they are going to progress to the semi finals. Pep doesn’t have the best record either at this stage but the Man City quadruple is still alive!
If we are looking for a bit of value then Spurs at 12/1 might look a huge price if they hold off Man City. And at 25/1 you can some action with Man Utd. They pulled off the unthinkable against PSG in the last round, can they do it again at the Nou Camp. I think they have got it in them if Ole can fire them up.
