All eight UEFA Champions League round of 16 first leg ties have now all been played, and there are a few teams that look to be cruising into the quarterfinals.
But we will have to wait until March 10-11 and 17-18 to see the ties completed, so which teams look most likely to advance into the final eight?
Bayern Munich (leads 3-0 on aggregate, second leg March 18): The German side came to London and completely overwhelmed Chelsea in a 3-0 win Tuesday night, and it was lucky for the Blues that they head to Germany down only three goals. But make no mistake about it: this tie is OVER. Bayern Munich might be the favorite to win this tournament. Bayern Munich is -10000 to advance, with Chelsea +6000.
Atalanta (leads 4-1 on aggregate, second leg March 10): The Italian side blitzed Valencia with two first half goals, then added two more, to take a 4-1 lead to Spain. The lone goal for Valencia might give the Spanish side a glimmer of hope, but a first half goal from Atalanta next month will end the tie. Atalanta is -2500 to advance, with Valencia +1000.
Manchester City (leads 2-1 on aggregate, second leg March 17): The whole tie was turned on its head in the final 15 minutes Wednesday. City scored twice to take a 2-1 advantage, then Sergio Ramos was sent off with a straight red, so he will miss the return leg in Manchester. Can the Cityzens, in the face of a two-year ban, win the whole thing? Manchester City is -1115 to advance, with Real Madrid +650.
RB Leipzig (leads 1-0 on aggregate, second leg March 10): A 1-0 win in London for the German side means that Leipzig returns home as a heavy favorite to advance (-455; Tottenham is +330). Tottenham will be without star players, and will have to find a way to win on the road, something the Spurs have struggled with for over a year.
