The 2020-21 EHF Champions League continues this week with the first legs of the quarter-finals. In the last eigh teams we can find familiar names from Barcelona to Veszprem. Just like the defending champions, Kiel who will have a tough job against the French champions, PSG. Let’s see the favorites for all games according to the EHF Champions League quarter-finals predictions.
Luckily this season’s Champions League hasn’t been affected as much as last year’s and the tournament is keeping its schedule. In the next two weeks fans can watch the remaining eight teams fighting for their place in the final four. Which will be held this year in Cologne, on the 12th and 13th of June. Last season’s runner-up, Barcelona are the biggest favorites to win the tournament this time. The Spanish star team should easily qualify to the last four against Belarusian Meshkov Brest. The Hungarian champions Telekom Veszprem will face Nantes in the quarter-final, but we can expect the biggest excitement from the Kiel-PSG tie. While another German team, Flensburg can also reach the final four against Aalborg with a good performance.
EHF Champions League quarter-finals predictions favor the defending champions against PSG
THW Kiel will host Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday, where they are favored to win the game by online sportsbooks in Germany. No wonder as the team has been in great form all season. They are currently leading the Bundesliga and are likely to win it again. While they’ve also reached the quarter-finals of the Champions League quite easily. After knocking out Pick Szeged in the last 16 with 66-56 on aggregate. But now they will face an even tougher opponent in PSG, who also featured in last season’s final four.
Kiel want to defend their title though and have the odds of 1.55 to win the first match. Key players, like Swedish winger Niclas Eckberg or Norwegian Sander Sagosen can help to achieve that. But PSG also have top players in its squad from Danish Mikkel Hansen to French talent Dylan Nahi. They knocked out their opponent, Slovenian Celje in the previous round after finishing second in their group. Now the 2020 bronze medalists will try to do the same against Kiel. Their odds to surprise their hosts and win the game is 2.35 in the EHF Champions League quarter-finals predictions.
Flensburg and Veszprem are favored to win in other quarter-finals
German Flensburg-Handewitt will visit the home of Aalborg this Thursday. The 2014 Champions League winners are favored to win the game by online gambling sites in Germany. Which is not surprising after their superb performance in the group stage. As the team won their group ahead of PSG, Kielce and Brest. And they didn’t even have to play against Zagreb in the last 16 after the Croatian team didn’t have enough players to play with. While Aalborg only qualified ahead of Porto thanks to scoring more goals away. Now the Danish team’s odds to win at home is 2.75 on bet365.
Similar odds are offered for the victory of Nantes against the Hungarian champions, Telekom Veszprem. The French team has already caused some surprise after knocking out Polish Kielce in the previous round. But they face an even more difficult task against Veszprem who finished fourth last season. David David’s team is aiming for an even better result this season with players like Nikolaj Magnussen, Kentin Mahe and Patrik Ligetvari. In the fourth quarter-final Barcelona are highly favored by bookmakers to win against Meshkov Brest. The Belarusian team has already achieved its biggest success with reaching the quarter-finals. But Raul Alonso’s team would need a miracle against Barcelona to go any further. As it’s shown by their odds of 9.00 to win the first game.
