2021 Champions League bracket, odds, picks, top predictions: Expert backing Chelsea to advance
After playing all 90 minutes in France’s 1-1 draw against Ukraine on Wednesday, having put in superhuman effort the week prior against Atlético Madrid and gotten a brief, late runout over the weekend against Sheffield United, N’Golo Kanté has picked up a hamstring injury and has returned to Chelsea for further diagnosis and treatment. The French Football Federation confirmed the news on Thursday evening
Manchester City is on the verge of capturing the Premier League title for the third time in four seasons. The club has yet to claim the crown in the UEFA Champions League, however, and been eliminated in the quarterfinals the last three years. Manchester City has the opportunity to end that streak when it takes on Borussia Dortmund in the 2020-21 UEFA Champions League quarterfinals, which begin on April 6. The contest is one of two first-leg matches that day, along with Real Madrid vs. Liverpool.
The remaining two games in the first leg of the 2021 Champions League bracket take place the following day, with Porto facing Chelsea and PSG seeking revenge against Bayern Munich in a rematch of last year's final. Before locking in your picks to win the Champions League bracket 2021, make sure you see what SportsLine's European soccer guru Martin Green has to say.

Christensen is certainly capable of taking that same incremental, additional aggressive step as has used his pace to drive forward nicely since his reemergence under Tuchel. Yet, he appears reluctant to fully exploit that ability by carrying the ball as far forward as he can, at times. Rather, he seems willing to pull up and be content to pass the ball wherever, instead of taking full advantage of what the defense is giving him. Rudiger, however, has taken that proclivity to its full advantage by driving the ball as far forward as he can before passing. That’s a good thing.
Rudiger has indicated recently that he feels he may possess the greatest pace on the Blues, Timo Werner notwithstanding. He also noted that Fikayo Tomori may also be faster than the German Flash. Tomori’s pace certainly is indisputable. Whether that is accurate or not though, Rudiger has recently certainly displayed that he is not only able to use his pace effectively in the counter-attack but is now also willing to do so. That a good thing for Chelsea. Andreas Christensen should follow Rudiger’s lead and take his counter-attacking game to the next level by following his example.
TUCHEL NOMINATED FOR MONTHLY AWARD
It was brilliant to see Rudiger, who had been consigned to the bench by former manager Frank Lampard for whatever reasons the former gaffer had. Yet, having been reinserted into the first team by Tuchel, Rudiger has justified the new manager’s faith in him by being a solid anchor on the left side of the back three on defense by making key plays game after game.
Now, Green has analyzed every matchup in the 2021 Champions League bracket and locked in his best bets. You can only see them over at SportsLine.
