Look Ahead To This Week's Champions League Fixtures

Look Ahead To This Week's Champions League Fixtures

The exciting period of the Champions League is finally here, as the round of 16 fixtures are due to start this week with the first games due to start tonight. The Champions League knockout fixtures always promise to be some of the most exciting games of the calendar year and below we look at this week's fixtures.

The fixture of the week sees Paris St Germain travel to Catalonia to face Barcelona in which is certainly a mouth-watering tie. PSG will be without Neymar Jr who is injured for his return to the Nou Camp and because of the Barcelona are going into the fixtures as favourites priced at 1/1 although we believe that this game is too unpredictable to predict, especially with Barcelona's current form.

Betting on the competition has continued to grow in popularity, with fans now getting involved from around the world in areas such as Canada, through sites such as It shows just how big this competition now is and why it is the biggest competition in club football world-wide.

Next up on Tuesday sees Premier League champions Liverpool travel to Jurgen Klopp's native Germany to face RB Leipzig who are one of the most in-form teams in the Bundesliga at the moment. Liverpool will be looking to bounce back after a loss at the weekend to Leicester but with the form that they are in, we can't guarantee this away from home and Leipzig might be worth a punt priced at 9/4.

Moving onto Wednesday's fixtures, we see Porto host Juventus in what promises to be a huge tie in the Portuguese capital. Of course, Champions League hero Cristiano Ronaldo will be looking to take the Italian giants to his 6th Champions League and if there is one man to do it then it is certainly him. We can't see anything but a Juventus win, regardless if it is away and they are currently priced at 17/16.

And the final fixture this week in the Champions League sees European powerhouses Sevilla take on Borussia Dortmund at the Ramon Sanchez-Pizjuan Stadium. Sevilla are well renounced for being rather impressive in Europe having been the underdogs in the Europa League final last year against Inter Milan, but they were crowned champions. However, they are coming up against Dortmund who have a star-studded line up including wonderkids Erling Haaland and Jadon Sancho who will be looking to light up the Champions League to secure their dream moves this summer.
