The UEFA Champions League Knockout Round Is Set. Here Are The Odds For Each Team To Advance.


If you’re unfamiliar with ESPN’s Soccer Power Index (SPI), it’s a data-driven ranking system, used to rank both club and national teams. It’s far from perfect, but for a mainstream-media-made concoction, it’s pretty damn good.

The UEFA Champions league knockout round draw recently came out, and SPI has the odds for each of the 16 teams chances of advancing. Unsurprisingly, Bayern Munich is not screwed, despite drawing Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The knockout round doesn’t start ’til February 18th, but that won’t stop us from acting as if we know what’s gonna happen.
