Odds & Ends
Here are some quick-hitting thoughts on all of the matches:
- RB Leipzig vs Tottenham: As predicted, same old Jose Mourinho. While he continues to beat down his team, Leipzig will beat Spurs down at home with a convincing win.
- Valencia vs Atalanta: Valencia is going to be forced to chase this game–which will open things up for Atalanta. Look for a wild and high-scoring Atalanta win. Take the over (-139) on 3.5 goals.
- PSG vs BVB: Due to coronavirus concerns, this will be played in an empty PSG stadium. How will that impact the home team? Hot take: not good! Expect a 2-2 draw with the Germans advancing.
- Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid: We already covered this in our Liverpool vs Atletico Madrid Round of 16 preview but here are the Cliff Notes: Lots of Atleti whining and a feisty 2-1 Reds win.
- Juventus vs Lyon: Ronaldo will find the back of the net for a 1-0 Juventus win and advance on penalties.
- Manchester City vs Real Madrid: The Los Blancos roller-coaster continues as they shock FFP violating City for a 2-0 win.
- Bayern Munich vs Chelsea: The Germans pound the Blues again–cruising to a comfortable 3-1 win.
- Barcelona vs Napoli: Messi nets a brace as Barcelona advance on a nervy 2-1 win.
