  • Betcris.com Not many people expected Liverpool to make it all the way to the Champions League Finals. Liverpool was out of all European competitions just a couple years ago, but things turned around once Jurgen Klopp assumed the role of manager. Klopp has this team back in the top four in the Premier League, and now he has them on the cusp of winning their eighth Champions League title.   More

  • Betcris.com This could be the highest-scoring Champions League Final we have seen in quite some time. The two semifinal ties had a combined 20 goals in them, the most we have ever seen in the Champions League. Both Real Madrid and Liverpool are going to want to play an open match. Unlike in seasons past where one of the two teams in the final relied on its defense, Real Madrid and Liverpool both are going to want to score. That means we might have the highest-scoring final since Liverpool bested AC Milan in 2005.   More

  • Betcris.com It may be turning midnight on Roma’s Champions League dream. The club has done very well to get to this point. Roma had to outlast Shakhtar Donetsk in the Round of 16 and incredibly knocked off Barcelona 3-0 at home in order to make it to the semifinals.   More

  • Betcris.com The first leg of Real Madrid’s tie against Bayern Munich was Mission Accomplished for the Spanish giants. Real Madrid would have settled for a draw, but a win was what they were after and they got just that.   More

They have won three of the last four titles and are looking to make it four of five this year.   More

  • Betcris.com Both AS Roma and Liverpool got the exact draw they wanted for the Champions League Semifinals. Each side breathed a sigh of relief when it was announced that they would be squaring off with each other rather than juggernauts Bayern Munich or Real Madrid. However, only one of these teams will be playing in the Champions League Final in Kyiv on May 26. Liverpool are favored to advance and will be hosting Roma in the first leg of their tie.   More

  • Betcris.comTo be honest, the second leg of the Champions League looks a little dull.

  • Betcris.comFour teams have already punched their tickets to the Champions League Quarterfinals and four more are set to join them after this week’s matches.  More

  • Betcris.comMauricio Pochettino has to wonder how in the world he angered the soccer gods. His Tottenham side was drawn into the so-called "Group of Death" last year in the Champions League, finishing third to AS Monaco and Bayer Leverkusen (a group that also included CSKA Moscow). This time around, the Spurs have been drawn into Group H. Tottenham, Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund have all been drawn together. Poor APOEL is virtually certain to finish without a single point, and there's a good chance that  More

  • Betcris.comMost of the top teams in Europe are set to embark on their preseason tournaments. Many are coming to the International Cup of Champions in the United States or over in Asia. Though that isn't necessarily the best indication of what the club is going to bring to the table this year, it's the first sign we're going to have of what the Champions League might look like.  More

  • Betcris.comVirtually every year, the teams that are in the Champions League Final have been through a nightmare to reach the last game of the European club season. Rare though, is the season when we legitimately have arguably the two best teams in the world playing in this game. This year, we could certainly make the debate that Juventus and Real Madrid are the two best teams on the planet.  More

  • Betcris.comAfter weeks upon weeks of high-flying offensive soccer, will the Champions League slow down a little bit now that we've reached the semifinals? These matches tend to end up being a bit gritty in nature, particularly in the first leg, and that might be what we end up seeing, particularly over in Spain where we have two teams that are awfully familiar with each other squaring off for 180 minutes.  More

  • Betcris.comThe Champions League is down to its last four, and if Real Madrid is going to ultimately win this tournament, it's going to have earned it. Los Blancos have drawn Atletico Madrid in the semifinals after being stuck with Bayern Munich in the quarterfinals.

    Champions League - Games of the Week

    By Andrew Ryan

    Betcris.comThough it doesn't necessarily feel like the last four spots in the Champions League are locked up, there isn't such thing as a team that won in the first leg of the quarterfinal ties who shouldn't feel great about its spot going into the last 90 minutes of action. If the Round of 16 was any indication though, there's going to be at least one, if not more teams coming from behind to challenge the favorites, and you're not going to want to miss that magic unfold on Tuesday and Wednesday night.  More

  • Betcris.comThe last eight of the Champions League is set. There isn't a team that can't ultimately figure out how to win the whole enchilada from here, and a dream of a team as small as Leicester City could end up being big enough to play with the big boys. And with Real Madrid and Bayern Munich facing off with one another, that's going to take one of the big boys out of this fold going into the last four. And thus, the draw shook up the odds to win the Champions League as much as the results in the last 16 itself.  More

    Champions League Update Round of 16

    By Andrew Ryan

    Betcris.comSoccer is a beautiful game. Teams that are down and out are a few moments of brilliance away from flipping the script. Barcelona looked for everything like it was going to come all the way back from a 4-0 deficit against PSG to at least level the match and send it to extra time, but the Parisians had other ideas on the hour by scoring the screamer that should have ended it. Alas, at the end, it was three strikes from the Catalans in a span of just eight minutes, and that send Barcelona through. Will we see anywhere near that degree of magic this time around in the last four matches of the Round of 16? One can only hope.  More
