Make Your Semifinal Picks
By Matt Draper
The world's top club tournament is now down to the final four, with Real Madrid, Manchester City, Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich advancing to the UEFA Champions League semifinals. Whether you're looking to stay atop the leaderboard or rise in the rankings, be sure to make your picks for the remaining matchups. (Plus, there are some awesome prizes up for grabs.)
The stakes continue to get higher as we move closer to crowning a champion, with points increasing in value as the tournament progresses to the final on May 28. Here's the scoring breakdown (note that during the knockout round, each two-leg series is scored as one match, with the overall winner claiming the all the points):
Group stage: 1 point per correct pick (96 matches = 96 points total) - COMPLETED
Round of 16: 4 points per correct pick (8 matches = 32 points total) - COMPLETED
Quarterfinals: 8 points per correct pick (4 matches = 32 points total) - COMPLETED
Semifinals: 16 points per correct pick (2 matches = 32 points total)
Final: 16 points per correct pick (1 match = 16 points max)
There are some tough decisions that lie ahead. Will one of the remaining Spanish clubs -- Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid -- emerge as champions to make it three consecutive UCL titles for La Liga? Will Manchester City, making its first semifinal appearance, make a run to the championship? Or will Bayern Munich claim the title in Pep Guardiola's final season as manager?
Remember, matchups won't lock until the games actually begin round by round, so make sure to check back to lock in your picks.
