2024 Champions League Quarter-Final Ties

Here's the rundown of the 2023-24 Champions League quarter-finals fixtures. All odds displayed are from the To Qualify markets.

Arsenal 20/231.87 v Bayern Munich 9/10

First Leg: 9 April, 20:00
Second Leg: 17 April, 20:00

Harry Kane is going back to north London. The ex-Tottenham man would love to help Bayern Munich end Arsenal's Champions League campaign. Kane scored five goals for his old club at the Emirates and will be gunning for more in the first leg.

Bayern have endured a tough season and Thomas Tuchel is stepping down as manager in the summer. The German champions and their manager, however, both know what it takes to win this competition and have done so this decade. Tuchel also knows plenty about English opposition from his time at Chelsea and that could count for a lot.


Real Madrid 13/82.63 v Man City 40/851.47

First Leg: 9 April, 20:00
Second Leg: 17 April, 20:00

"We meet again... " Those words may be on the lips of Pep Guardiola and Carlo Ancelotti on the Bernabeu touchline when these face each-other meet for the third successive season in the knock-out rounds of the Champions League.

City are favourites to qualify but only a fool would write-off Madrid, who are the most successful club in the competition's history. Strengthened by the signing of Jude Bellingham, Los Blancos will be out for revenge against a City side that eliminated last season.


Atletico Madrid 8/131.61 v Borussia Dortmund 5/42.25

First Leg: 10 April, 20:00
Second Leg: 16 April, 20:00

Atletico knocked out last year's runners-up Inter in the last round and will fancy their chances of reaching the last four. These two sides are the biggest prices in the outright winner market, so few punters think the eventual champion is coming from this tie, but it presents a fantastic opporunity for either side to reach the last four.


Paris Saint-Germain 20/231.87 v Barcelona 9/10

First Leg: 10 April, 20:00
Second Leg: 16 April, 20:00

This tie is full of fascinating plotlines, with Luis Enrique's PSG taking on the club he steered to Champions League glory in 2015. In the Barca dugout is Xavi, the man who lifted the trophy for the Catalans that night. Barca swept aside Napoli in the last round to signal that, despite their tricky season in La Liga, Xavi's men should not be taken lightly.

PSG are trying to win the Champions League trophy for the first time in their history. Kylian Mbappe would love to help them do it in what will almost certainly be his last season for the French club. If he is Madrid-bound this summer, shooting down Barca here would be a good thing to do.


Where is the Champions League final 2024?

Wembley.jpg

The 2023-24 Champions League final will be played at Wembley Stadium, in London, England.

It will take place on 1 June at 20:00 UK time. This will be the third time that the Champions League final has been hosted at Wembley since the stadium was rebuilt, having previously done so in 2011 and 2013.

In total, it will be the eighth occasion that the European Cup/Champions League final has been hosted in London. The old Wembley Stadium was the host in 1963, 1968, 1971, 1978 and 1992.


2023-24 Champions League Odds

Let's take a look at the chances of all eight of the teams left in the Champions League. We've ranked them by their current Champions League winner odds, ahead of the quarter-final clashes.

Manchester City - 7/42.75

Having finally gotten hold of the trophy after years of trying, Manchester City are the well-justified Champions League favourites. Pep Guardiola's team haven't really got out of second gear this season and have had to make do without star players Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne for large portions of the season. Nevertheless, they achieved a perfect set of results in the group stage and are nicely positioned in the Premier League title race. If there is a potential weakness, it is that City have rarely kept a clean sheet this season.

Arsenal - 5/16.00

Arsenal squeezed past Porto on penalties but showed plenty of resilience to get the job done. Mikel Arteta's team have proved that they can beat the best at home this season, with victories over Manchester City and Liverpool in the Premier League. Bayern Munich will be a major test in the quarter-finals but the Gunners' home form will give them a chance of progressing against anyone, even if their profligacy could ultimately cost them.

Real Madrid - 6/17.00

Real Madrid have won this competition in seasons in which they have not been at their best in LaLiga. It seems like there is no such thing as a transitional season for Madrid and they can challenge in this competition at any moment. Right now, they are leading the Spanish title race and have been in consistently good form all season. When it comes to the best value team to win the Champions League, it is hard to look past Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich - 7/18.00

With Bayern Munich currently in the midst of a tight Bundesliga title battle with Bayer Leverkusen, the continued competitiveness that they need to show domestically could aid their Champions League quest. The extraordinary goalscoring form of Kane is a major asset, even if the Bayern defence is not as watertight as Tuchel might like.

Paris Saint-Germain - 15/28.50

PSG are a fairly recent Champions League finalist, having been runners-up in 2020, but this incarnation are not as star-studded as in seasons' past. They struggled through qualification but rarely looked in trouble in their 4-1 win over Real Sociedad in the last round. In Mbappe they have a match-winner.

Barcelona - 10/111.00

Barca reputation in this competition is based largely on glories past but their ruthless 3-1 second-leg win over Napoli showed that Camp Nou is still an intimidating place for visitors. Xavi is leaving in the summer and it would be a surprise if he did so after lifting this trophy.

Atletico Madrid - 12/113.00

Next in the Champions League betting are Atletico Madrid. They upset the odds to overcome Inter in the last round. Diego Simeone's team used to be so defensively tight, that they were well-suited to the two-legged format of the Champions League knockout rounds. Now they score more freely, yet also concede regularly, which makes their progression more of a lottery.

Borussia Dortmund - 22/123.00

Dortmund are perhaps a little underrated here. While their Bundesliga form has been inconsistent, having only just missed out on the title last season, they have been impressive in the Champions League. After a poor start, they fought back against the toughest opposition that the group stage had to offer and won their Round of 16 tie against PSV Eindhoven.


Champions League Top Scorer Betting

The race to be the 2023-24 Champions League top scorer is wide open. Of the players that remain in the competition, Erling Haaland, Antoine Griezmann and Alvaro Morata lead the way with five goals each.

On four are Julian Alvarez, Evanilson, Gabriel Jesus, Lois Openda, Galeno, Jude Bellingham and Harry Kane. As we enter the Round of 16, here are the main contenders in the 2023-24 Champions League top scorer odds.

Of those contenders, Haaland and Kane are justified favourites, given their goalscoring form and their teams being likely to reach the latter stages of the Champions League. There could be value in Alvarez and Bellingham for the same reasons.


English Chances at Champions League 2024

Premier League teams have done very well in the Champions League over recent years. Three separate English clubs - Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City - have won the trophy over the last five seasons.

There has been at least one English finalist in five of the last six Champions League finals. In both 2019 and 2021, there were all-English finals, with Liverpool beating Tottenham and Chelsea defeating Manchester City.

With Betfair's Full English specials, you can back any English club to win the UEFA Champions League at 11/102.11, with Manchester City and Arsenal both being leading contenders.

You can also bet on English clubs winning the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League at 18/119.00. Manchester City are the favourites to win the Champions League, as are Liverpool in the Europa League and Aston Villa in the Europa Conference League.
