There is only one round left from the group stage in this season’s Champions League, but we still don’t know the name of all qualifying teams for the knockout stage. As in some groups it is very tight with all teams still with a chance to progress. While in others the picture is more clear. Bet on the last group games in UCL, we show you now the odds for the most exciting games.
After this week’s games we already know some of the teams who have already qualified for the last 16 as a group winner or runner-up. These teams are defending champions Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Porto, Liverpool, Chelsea, Sevilla, Borussia Dortmund, Barcelona and Juventus. But the name of the other seven teams are still not known and will only be decided in the last round. In Group B, all four teams can still finish in the first two places. Which means even record winner Real Madrid have to fight for their place. While in the strongest group, Group H, Manchester United, PSG and RB Leipzig are on level on points. So only their last games will decide who can go through to the next stage.
Bet on the last group games in UCL where Real Madrid have to win
Real Madrid have to win their last game against Borussia Monchengladbach to advance to the knockout stage. As they are only in 3rd place in the group with 7 points, just like Shakhtar Donetsk. The Germans are leading with 8 points and have a big chance to qualify to the last 16. But they will need at least a point to achieve it. Online sportsbooks in Germany offer the odds of 3.60 for a draw in Madrid, and 5.00 for the guests’ win. Zinedine Zidane’s team is still the favorite to win the game with the odds of 1.70. But they need to play much better than in their last game.
While in the other match Inter will host Shakhtar Donetsk with the odds of 1.30 to win. But Conte’s side has to be careful as the Ukrainians have already surprised Real twice. With their dangerous Brazilian forwards they can easily score again. If they can draw and Real lose against Gladbach, Shakhtar would qualify to the last 16. But Inter also have some of the best strikers in their team like Lukaku and Martinez and more routine. The Italians have the odds of 1.72 on bet365 to qualify from the group.
Three teams can still go through from Group H
In the toughest group the situation is similar, though here the fourth team, Istanbul Basaksehir are already out of the race. But Manchester United, Paris Saint-Germain and RB Leipzig are equal on points, so their last games will decide the final result. PSG will have an easier job as they play at home against Basaksehir with the odds of 1.12 to win the game. But if you want higher odds, bet on the last group games in UCL between RB Leipzig and Manchester United.
Even online gambling sites in Germany can’t decide a clear favorite and offer almost the same odds for the home (2.50) and the guests’ (2.62) victory. Last season’s semi-finalists would progress to the knockout stage if they won the game. If it’s a draw, which has the odds of 3.50, United would still qualify. But a point would only be enough for the Germans if PSG couldn’t win in the other game. But after their 5-0 defeat at Old Trafford surely Julian Nagelsmann’s team wants to take revenge and knock out the Red Devils from the competition.
2nd places are still available in some of the groups
In Group A, Atletico Madrid and RB Salzburg will fight for second place in their game on Wednesday. Diego Simeone’s team can qualify with a draw, which has the odds of 3.60 while Salzburg can only go through with a victory. The young Austrian side has the odds of 2.87 to defeat the much more experienced Spanish team. But with their great players like Szoboszlai, who is one of the most sought after talents right now they can be able to do it.
Ajax and Atalanta can decide about the 2nd place in Group D in their game against each other. The home team is favored to win with the odds of 2.20 while a draw can be enough for the Italians. Atalanta were the surprise team of last season after reaching the quarter-finals for the first time. They haven’t looked so strong this season but could defeat Liverpool at Enfield, so Ajax won’t have an easy job. While another Italian team, Lazio are also with a chance to progress to the last 16 from Group F. They only need a point against Club Brugge at home on their last game where they are favored to win the game with the odds of 1.75.
