UEFA Champions League quarterfinals headline This Week’s Soccer on TV and Online

39 Shares

With all the uncertainty swirling around Chelsea at the moment, the fact that it has to defend its UEFA Champions League title almost became an afterthought in recent weeks.

Nobody expected Thomas Tuchel’s midseason takeover of the Blues to result in lifting the UCL title last season, at least until the semifinal when they overpowered Real Madrid in the second leg. They meet again, and one round earlier this year with Chelsea playing host in the first leg on Wednesday in what promises to be another dramatic series.

Manchester City’s tie with Atlético Madrid is also a must-watch for obvious reasons. Pep Guardiola’s resume at Manchester City is only missing the UCL title. You could argue that his current squad is one of the most talented he has ever had, but nobody can afford to look past a worthy foe in Atlético.

If you’re looking for a UCL underdog, Unai Emery’s Villarreal is your candidate. The Spanish side raised some eyebrows by defeating Juventus 4-1 on aggregate in the round of 16. Now, the Bavarian buzzsaw of Bayern Munich awaits and should present a much more difficult test.

Concacaf Champions League also plays out this week, with the opening legs of the semifinals kicking off. Interleague crime takes place on both sides of the bracket with the Seattle Sounders and New York City FC representing MLS, and Pumas and Cruz Azul for Liga MX.

This Week’s Top 5 Matches to Watch


  1. Chelsea vs Real Madrid – A rematch of last season’s semifinal showdown which will have plenty at stake for both team’s confidence.
  2. Manchester City vs Atlético Madrid – The Citizens should have the advantage, but a hot start from Atlético would not exactly be a shocker.
  3. Villarreal vs Bayern Munich – Can Villarreal hang in there with another superpower team?
  4. Seattle Sounders vs New York City FC – You probably will not be upset with whoever winds up representing MLS in the CCL final, and seeing who wants it more should make for an exciting watch.
  5. Pumas UNAM vs Cruz Azul – Cruz Azul is having a much better league campaign as things stand, but only edged Pumas 2-1 in their last meeting.
