The champions league is heating up fast and four of the big names in Europe are already through to the quarter finals of the biggest club event in the world.
Real Madrid Liverpool, Juventus and Manchester city have booked their places in the quarter-final stage of the UEFA Champions League.
While Madrid made it a double over PSG; beating them 2-1 on Tuesday night after previously thumping the Parisians 3-1 at Santiago Bernabeu, Liverpool took their legs of the pedal in their game against FC Porto.
The Reds who had won the first leg 5-0 in Portugal only played out a barren draw at Anfield on Tuesday night of which they never really needed to do much work.
It was nonetheless more than enough for Liverpool who are making it to the quarter-final of the Champions League for the first time in nine years.
While Jurgen Klopp will be hailed for his heroics, it will be the direct opposite for PSG’s Unal Emery who looks destined to lose his job on the heels of this latest Champions League ouster.
Manchester City lost 2-1 to Basle on Wednesday night, but still qualified for the last eight of the Champions League.
Pep Guardiola’s men won the first leg in Switzerland 4-0 and took the lead at the Etihad thanks to Gabriel Jesus.
However, Basle struck back through Mohamed Elyounoussi and Michael Lang to win the reverse fixture.
City progress with a 5-2 aggregate.
In the other match, Juventus produced a fine comeback to beat Tottenham 2-1 at Wembley Stadium and qualify on a 4-3 aggregate.
