Real Madrid, Chelsea in Action

Published on March 16th, 2014 3:20 pm EST
The final matches of the Round of 16 Champions League matches will take place later this week.

Four times have already advanced to the quarter-finals - they are:

Barcelona (defeated Manchester City 4-1)
Atletico Madrid (defeated AC Milan 5-1)
Paris Saint-Germain (defeated Bayer Leverkusen 6-1)
Bayern Munich (defeated Arsenal 3-1)

Here are the Champions League games that are set for this week:

Chelsea (1.40) vs Galatasaray (9.00)
Real Madrid (1.17) vs Schalke 04 (15.00)

Borussia Dortmund (1.33) vs Zenit St. Petersburg (8.50)
Manchester United (1.44) vs Olympiacos (6.50)

Of the four matches, two are still in doubt - Manchester United vs Olympiacos and Chelsea vs Galatasaray. Manchester United dropped the first leg of their match to Olympiacos 2-0, while Chelsea and Galatasaray tied 1-1. Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid, on the other hand, both won easily in their first matches and are in no danger of not advancing to the quarter-finals.


As of this moment, Chelsea is 1.17 to qualify for the quarter-finals while Galatasaray is listed at 4.50.

The most interesting match is likely to be Manchester United vs Olympiacos, as Olympiacos is currently 1.40 to advance to the quarter-finals, though Manchester United will be playing in front of their home fans. Having said that, Manchester United has been a major disappointment this season, so their fans likely shouldn't expect anything other than another disappointment on Wednesday.


A few notes for Champions League this week:

-Galatasaray has not won in their last eight visits to English teams
-Manchester United has never lost a home game against a Greek opponent
-Manchester United has only ever come back from a first-leg Champions League defeat once in their history
