Champions League: Ranking the Remaining Contenders
Jon Super

Following this week's first-leg matches in the Champions League quarterfinals, the picture is still somewhat unclear as to who will progress into the semifinals.

Tuesday's matches saw Barcelona draw Atletico Madrid 1-1 in Barcelona and Bayern Munich draw Manchester United at Old Trafford with the same score.

Wednesday's results were more decisive, as Real Madrid defeated Borussia Dortmund 3-0 in Spain, while Paris St. Germain beat Chelsea 3-1 in Paris.

With the possible exception being the Madrid-Dortmund tie, all three of the other matchups are still up for grabs heading into the second-leg games next week.

Of course, it is still unknown who will be drawn against whom in the semifinals, which will play a role in determining the likelihood of the eventual champion. For the sake of discussion, these are the rankings of the remaining eight teams in the tournament following the first-leg matches, starting from least likely to most likely to be crowned champions in Lisbon, Portugal in May.
