We’ve got a while to wait to witness the action unfold as first legs will be held on February 16th, 17th, 23rd and 24th, followed by second legs on March 9th, 10th, 16th and 17th.

Betsson also offer great odds as a bookmaker on match results, the number of goals, handicaps and a cashout option if you feel your bet will let you down before the full-time whistle is blown! What is cash out? Cashout is a feature that allows bettors to get money back on their bet before the event you are betting on is even over! Example: you place a bet on Borussia Monchengladbach to win 2-1 against Manchester City, in the 46th minute Man City score and see Borussia trailing 1-0, you still have a good chance at winning your bet, but if it looks like Man City are on the up, you may want to cash out! The amount of money you receive is determined at the time of cashing out and will also depend on the current likelihood of the bet winning, which could result in being greater or less than the initial stake. When cashout is complete, your original wager will end, and you will receive a payout.
