Predictions are in, and with these tight matchups, we can expect some changes in the standings.

Dortmund is our biggest favourite, with only two players picking Monaco to advance. Germany’s other remaining club, is also heavily favoured to knock off defending champion Real Madrid. Atlético is similarly favoured over the last remaining English club, Leicester City.

Finally, the matchup which will be most crucial to us: we are split between Juventus and Barcelona.

 

Enjoy the games!
