UEFA Champions League best bets for second leg of round of 16

UEFA Champions League best bets for second leg of round of 16

03/16/2021

In last week’s second legs, only one of the four matchups had much drama, as 10-man Porto survived to knock out Juventus in extra time. This week looks less promising, with all four favorites projected at 80 percent or more to advance, per FiveThirtyEight’s Soccer Power Index.

I do think at least one of this week’s matchups will have drama, and another will have the semblance of drama, even if the outcome isn’t really in doubt. In the two games featuring the two title favorites (Manchester City and Bayern Munich), the challenge is to find the right plays given the big leads both teams have after the first legs.

As always, keep in mind that these bets are for 90 minutes (plus stoppage time) unless otherwise noted.
