Atletico Madrid. In addition to the aforementioned analysis, their chances increased significantly when Leipzig in the quarterfinals was an army that was no longer Timo Werner after the transfer to Chelsea, and Christian Poulsen was injured. And Atletico is unbeaten in 19 consecutive games with the terrifying form of Alvaro Morata & Marcos Llorente.
Paris Saint-Germain. Frankly speaking, even if there are enough Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, PSG can not be rated as stronger than Atletico, not to mention they have to overcome a scary Atalanta attack in the quarterfinals and have not played much in the past 6 months. However, Neymar was born to shine in knockout matches.
Atalanta. The top scoring team in Europe with the most chances of finishing, and also the most powerful team in Serie A when calculating the distance traveled. Big losses for them when Ilicic will not play, but Atalanta has up to 6 other players who have scored 7 or more goals this season only in Serie A.
Bayern Munich. Too strong, full force and effective tactics. They will easily beat Chelsea, but the problem is whether they can maintain their strength when the competition is full of difficult opponents in a row.
Man City. They are strong enough to overcome Real Madrid, and when Laporte is in the extremely solid City defense, keep clean sheets in the last 7/10 matches.
Juventus / Barcelona. Juventus’s Cristiano Ronaldo and Paulo Dybala and Barca’s Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez or Barca’s Antoine Griezmannare both big players capable of deciding big matches. But the tactics of these two teams are very lackluster and there is no guarantee they will surpass Lyon or Napoli.
Real Madrid. They have the best defense in Europe but will have to meet Man City without Sergio Ramos and have to attack and score at least 2 goals. Their chances will increase significantly if they pass the eighth round even though the branch is “huge”.
