  • BookMaker.eu For just the second time ever, we are set to have an all-English Champions League Final. Tottenham Hotspur are looking to win their first Champions League title. It’s been an incredible season for Spurs. They finished the year with 70 points or more for the fourth straight season, and Spurs will now get the chance to win their first European trophy since winning the UEFA Cup in 1984. As for Liverpool, the Reds are looking to win their sixth Champions League title and claim some hardware after fi... 

  • BookMaker.eu The last 12 months have been phenomenal for English soccer and that has reached a crescendo. For the first time ever, both the Champions League Final and the Europa League Final will pit English teams against one another. When Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur meet on June 1, it will be only the second time the Champions League Final has been an all-England affair. The previous meeting pitted Manchester United and Chelsea against one another, with United emerging victorious in penalties.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Cinderella of this Champions League has been Ajax, but the young Dutch club are underdogs no more. After dispatching of Real Madrid and Juventus in the previous two rounds, no one was seeing this club as an underdog, as their youth movement has proven enormously fruitful. Ajax went on the road to beat Tottenham Hotspur in the first leg of their Champions League Semifinals tie, and they are now favorites to advance to the final in Madrid in late May. A result here would ensure that they advan... 

  • BookMaker.eu FC Barcelona were the last team not named Real Madrid to win the Champions League back in 2015, and Barca are the odds-on favorites to win this year’s Champions League. The Blaugrana are in great shape to advance to the final in Madrid in late May after a 3-0 win over Liverpool FC in the first leg of their semifinal tie, and only a disaster in the return leg would keep them from advancing. They will be sure not to take advancing for granted after wasting a 4-1 win over AS Roma in last year’s Cha... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two European titans will square off for a spot in the Champions League Final on Wednesday when FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC begin their two leg clash. Barcelona have been dominant for nearly two decades, and they have continually been among the kings of Europe. Meanwhile, Liverpool have been largely up and down since their glory days in the 1970s and 1980s, and they are just now hitting their peak once more. Liverpool nearly won the Champions League Final last year, and they were outplaying Real Madrid until Mo Salah separated his shoulder after a questionable Sergio Ramos tackle. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu There isn’t any rest for the weary as just two weeks after our last Champions League matches, the Champions League Semifinals will get underway. The first of the two semifinals pits two teams that weren’t expected to be here against one another. Ajax have been the giant killer of the competition, and they have a real chance to harken back to their glory days in the 1970s with a win here. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur are in the semifinals of the Champions League for just the second time in their ... 

  • BookMaker.eu As I said last week, we are incredibly likely to have two English teams in the Champions League Semifinals, and two English clubs are heavily favored to become the final semifinalists on Wednesday. An English team had to advance when Manchester City met Tottenham Hotspur, but the team that was favored to advance has a deficit to make up after losing the first leg. In Wednesday’s other game, Liverpool is a heavy favorite to advance after beating Porto 2-0 in the first leg of their tie. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two teams will punch their ticket to the Champions League Semifinals this Tuesday night, while two others will be left to turn their attention back towards their domestic leagues. The second leg of both of Tuesday’s matches stands to be thrilling. Juventus are not the favorite many thought they would be coming into their return leg against Ajax, while Barcelona know they have to be on their guard despite a win in Old Trafford in the first leg after what Manchester United did to Paris Saint-Germa... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two of the three top favorites to win the Champions League will be in action on Wednesday when FC Barcelona travels to Old Trafford to face Manchester United and Juventus heads to Amsterdam to face Ajax. Although Barcelona and Juventus are on the road, both teams are favored to win the first leg of their Champions League Quarterfinals matches. Manchester United and Ajax are looking to keep their Cinderella stories alive.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The Champions League has been an English celebration. All four English teams are in the Quarterfinals, and an English team is favored to win the competition. However, we will see an English team exit the tournament this round. Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City are pitted against one another in one of the quarterfinals, and one of them will have to exit. Liverpool are heavily favored to make it at least two English teams in the semifinals though, and they will be taking on Porto on Tuesday.... 

  • BookMaker.eu After Wednesday’s Champions League matches, the Champions League Quarterfinals will be set and ready for the draw on Friday, March 15. Last week, Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United, Ajax, and Porto earned their places in the final eight, with Spurs being the only team to have little trouble claiming their spot. Two more teams will be added to the mix on Tuesday and the final two will be added after Bayern Munich host Liverpool and Barcelona host Olympique Lyon on Wednesday.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Half the Champions League Quarterfinals field is set. Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Ajax, and Porto have already qualified for the final eight, and two more teams will be looking to join them on Tuesday when Juventus hosts Atletico Madrid and Manchester City hosts FC Schalke 04. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Paris Saint-Germain are in a commanding position entering the second part of their Champions League Round of 16 tie with Manchester United. PSG went on the road and beat Manchester United 2-0 in Old Trafford in the first leg, so they have plenty of breathing room coming into this one. It would take a miracle for Manchester United to advance to the quarterfinals at this point…or a PSG collapse that we have seen all too often in the Champions League.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Defense will be the watchword when Atletico Madrid and Juventus meet in the Champions League Round of 16 on Wednesday. Atletico Madrid have one of the best back lines in the world, and they play a style that emphasizes their defense. Meanwhile, Juventus have been known for their defense for years, but they are opening things up on offense with the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo in the offseason. It will be interesting to see how they deploy on the road in this one.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The first half of the first legs of the Champions League Round of 16 were full of excitement. Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid went on the road to secure wins, while both Roma and Porto held serve at home. The most anticipated matchup is the one between Bayern Munich and Liverpool though. These blue bloods were drawn together in this round rather unfortunately, and the side that makes an early exit will certainly be disappointed.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Tottenham Hotspur are looking to make it to the Champions League quarterfinals for just the third time in their history. Spurs have not made many trips to the most prestigious competition in Europe, but this is also one of their strongest periods. To get to the final eight, they need to get past Bundesliga frontrunners Borussia Dortmund. These teams met in the Champions League Group Stage last year, and Spurs won both meetings behind three Harry Kane goals.... 

  • BookMaker.eu After nearly two months of waiting, the Champions League finally returns on Tuesday. There are just 16 teams left in the most prestigious club soccer competition in the world, and 15 of those 16 teams are out to keep Real Madrid from winning their fourth straight title. Paris Saint-Germain are one of the favorites to take home the title, even without Neymar. However, PSG have been snake-bit in this competition in recent years and they will try to avoid crashing out early once again when they fac... 

  • BookMaker.eu On Monday, UEFA drew opponents for the 16 teams left in the Champions League and there were fist pumps and exasperated sighs throughout the continent. Teams like Barcelona and Real Madrid were celebrating draws that should help them get to the Champions League Quarterfinals, while Bayern Munich and Juventus could not have been happy with drawing tough opponents despite winning their groups. Let’s look at some of the matches.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Wednesday’s Champions League action might not be as exciting as Tuesday’s as there is just one remaining spot in the knockout rounds up for grabs. However, there are two matches that are going to be very intriguing as the first will be for first place in the group and the second will determine the final Champions League spot.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The two groups everyone is watching in Champions League action this Tuesday are Group B and Group C. In Group A, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have already qualified and the only question is who will grab first. Group D no longer has any real drama as Porto has finished first and Schalke 04 has taken second.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Coming into this year’s Champions League, Group B and Group C were trumpeted as the two toughest groups with the most intriguing match-ups. That has proven to be the case. In Group B, Barcelona, Inter Milan, and Tottenham Hotspur have continued to duke it out, while Group C is wide open with Napoli, Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain, and Red Star Belgrade all within two points of one another. This Wednesday’s Champions League matches will feature teams from Groups A through D.... 

  • BookMaker.eu This coming week the Champions League is back in action and many clubs’ hopes of advancing are at stake. Some of the smaller clubs, like Viktoria Plzen, have already been eliminated and only have pride to play for at this point, while others are battling to win their group in order to avoid playing another strong team in the Round of 16. On Tuesday, teams from Groups E-H will take the field and we will have a lot of our questions answered at that point.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Following the first round robin of the Champions League Group Stage, teams know what they must do in order to advance to the knockout rounds. Some teams have a steep hill to climb in their effort to make it to the Round of 16, while other teams have a much more manageable journey after good results in the first leg. Once again, I will be previewing some of the bigger clubs, and the focus will be on Manchester City and Manchester United. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu There will be a lot of familiarity in the fourth matchday of this year’s Champions League, as teams begin the second part of the round robin against the opponent they just faced two weeks ago. This Tuesday, Groups A, B, C, and D will take to the pitch, and the key battles continue to be in Group B and Group C. With apologies to the three-way slugfest between Porto, Schalke 04, and Galatasaray in Group D, most of the attention will be on the three-way battle between Liverpool, Napoli, and Paris Saint Germain in Group C, and the clash between Barcelona and Inter Milan in Group B. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Groups A, B, C, and D will be in Champions League action on Wednesday, and some of the best clubs in the world are looking to right the ship and avoid an early flameout. Tottenham Hotspur are in real trouble with two losses in their first two matches, and they are already six points back of Barcelona and Inter Milan. Liverpool are in a bit of a precarious position as well after losing on the road to Napoli in their last Champions League match, and they need to hammer Red Star Belgrade to be in good position heading into the second round robin. Below, I’ll highlight the other matches from Tottenham and Liverpool’s groups, as they will let the English teams know what they need to do to advance. ...
