UEFA Champions League Predictions, Live Stream and Odds 2020-21

The UEFA Champions League group stage action will begin for the 2020-21 season on 20th October. After a very long year of 2020, the next few weeks and months will be colored by the Champions League games of the 2020-21 season.

After last season’s competition was delayed, the 2020-21 tournament is taking place later than usual. The group stage gets underway on Tuesday 20 October, with the final scheduled for Saturday, 29th May 2021 from the Atatürk Olympic Stadium, Istanbul.

The competition starts by midweek in the month of October  and all the teams have already made their way to the big stage. With countries in Europe allowing limited fans into stadiums, the UEFA competitions will revive the lost cheer that football has been missing out in recent days.

From the English Premier League – Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea represent the English in the Europe stage. Although they are among the favorites to win it, the reigning champions Bayern Munich are clearly hands down favorites to win the trophy this season.

Accompanied by Italian Champions Juventus, La Liga title holders Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all favored to become the crowned champions of Europe. With all that being said, the biggest stage in all of Europe is set to welcome and embrace its new Champion for the season.

UCL 2020-21 Predictions

Surprises sprouted up everywhere last week in European football. The Bavarian train was halted, Atleti went through a shock, Rossoneri were reduced to a clean-sheet, Jurgen Klopp silenced the young pretender, Dortmund edged past Sevilla while PSG stunned Barcelona at Camp Nou. New generation stars stamped their mark in the Champions League history. One set of clubs finished their first leg of last-32 others are up for action.

Atletico Madrid vs Chelsea

Atletico Madrid and Chelsea, two clubs with different philosophies, test each other out at Arena Nationala, a neutral venue in Bucharest lest spread of the virus. Despite a shocking loss to Levante 0-2, Mario Hermoso will hate himself over the howler, Atleti are three points better off Real Madrid, seeing the field one time less than the neighbours. Leaders of the top flight in Spain are a side built by and around their coach, Diego Simeone. The Argentine has sculpted the club with utmost precision and wisdom.

At the other end of the spectrum, Chelsea owner, Roman Abramovich, is notorious for sacking the coaches. Even the ones who have brought the English title to Stamford Bridge. Their one-month experienced gaffer, Thomas Tuchel, has been unbeaten so far. The Blues shared the spoils with Southampton 1-1 by the grace of a spot-kick, even that brings frustration to the German.

Atleti and the London club have some history between them, each club has two wins while sharing the spoils thrice out of the seven meetings. Diego Simeone’s men humbled Chelsea 1-3 in the 2013-14 Champions League semi-finals. All said Tuesday’s contest is a tough one to judge. Both the clubs will play to their strengths, Atleti are favoured by the bookmakers.

Lazio vs Bayern Munich

Lazio go against Bayern Munich at Stadio Olimpico in the first leg of the last-16 Champions League knockout tie. Leroy Sane made a magnificent assist at Frankfurt, Lewandowski did no mistake but everything ended in vain, the Bavarians couldn’t find victory nor the equalizer. Bayern were formidable a fortnight ago, winning the Club World Club and equalling record with a sextuple. But the pandemic has cast a shadow on the German club, Thomas Muller and Benjamin Pavard are in isolation. As a result, opponents have breached Bayern’s high line with ease, Ciro Immobile will love to do the same. Lazio got a glimpse of the top-four last weekend with their win against Sampdoria 1-0. Luis Alberto gifted a goal to Ciro Immobile on his birthday. A whole 21 years have passed since Lazio reached the knockout phase in the Champions League, Simeone Inzaghi and his men will make it worth everyone’s while. Nevertheless, the Bavarians will ravage Rome.

Atalanta vs Real Madrid

Last year’s surprise quarter-finalists Atalanta look to disturb the status quo as they take on Real Madrid at Gewiss Stadium. After a lifetime of trying, Casemiro found the net in the 65th minute at Valladolid. Zidane is back right on time for Real Madrid, the Vikings will have a confidence boost with their captain on board. However, not all is rosy as their star striker Karim Benzema is side-lined due to a muscle issue. Some players like Eden Hazard and Valverde may see the field this Wednesday. Real Madrid reigned supreme in Group B except for a shocker against Shaktar Donetsk 2-0. But the 13-time Champions League winners appear like an impostor of their vibrant past.

As for the Atalantans, they almost pulled off an upset against PSG 1-2 last year, they have the firepower to repeat the same. This game is their first against the Spanish superpower in football history. On a five-game unbeaten streak across all competitions, the Atalantans are explosive under Gian Piero Gasperini. Using a 3-4-3, which Atalanta normally do, against a Real Madrid defence punctured by injuries spells danger. But, Luka Modric and Casemiro in the midfield can curb the damage from travelling south. The travellers will gain a narrow victory in this fixture.

Monchengladbach vs Manchester City

Marco Rose’s men prepare themselves for a disaster ahead as they lock horns with Manchester City at Puskas Arena in the first leg of the knockout tie. Lars Stindl is Monchengladbach’s leading scorer. Marcus Thuram is on the treatment table. Monchengladbach have never won a game against City, four of the past meetings were in the Champions League. Making matters worse, the Colts are in a bad run of form, losing two of the last three Bundesliga games. Monchengladbach will give their all to prevent this game from becoming a one-sided affair.

Breaking records in each passing game, Manchester City are a few weeks away from sealing the Premier League title. With Kevin De Bruyne back in the squad, the Citizens can even become the second English club to lay their hands on the Champions League trophy. Even if they do, some of that credit will go to the brilliant Spaniard, Pep Guardiola. Breaking his code, Guardiola extended his contract with City, making it his first club where to stay longer. Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez, Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus, the Citizens have quite an attack. Mix them up with, Bernando Silva, Phil Foden, John Stones and Joao Cancelo, Voilà! Guardiola gets the magical potion of success. Constant, stimulating success, day-in and day-out. City will sweep a massive victory against the hosts.
