UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Draws Announced. Real Madrid and Barcelona won’t be pleased with the opponents they have got. The 4 official fixtures that will be played in UEFA Champions league quarter-final are:
It has been the most awaited thing in the world football since the final game of the round of 16 ended. The 8 quarter-finalists now know which team they will be playing in the next knockout round. Predicting the teams that will be going through is a tough task. Football is completely unpredictable and the results could be shocking sometimes. But we can surely discuss the favorites that are probable to reach the next round.
Among Atletico and Leicester City, the Madrid side is undoubtedly the favorite. But what makes Leicester City a danger for them is the motivation and the attitude of never giving up. This thing won them the Premier league title last year. And this same thing could make them the semi-finalist of the Champions league this year.
Real Madrid and Bayern has a bit of history behind. The 2 came face to face in UEFA Champions league semi-final in 2014. The Spanish giants humiliated the German champions in the Allianz Arena. This could be the revenge time for Bayern Munich as they are in great form. But Zinedine Zidane’s side isn’t lacking form. So this is an interesting fixture, full of suspense.
AS Monaco is one of the best performing teams in Europe this season. The free-scoring Monaco side is leading the League 1 table and seems to be the French league winner for this season. Moreover, Monaco turned a 5-3 loss in the first leg against Manchester City to a 6-6 aggregate win. On the other hand, the German club from Dortmund is one of the best teams in Europe and is capable of doing wonders. So again a difficult and exciting fixture.
Last time the 2 clubs came face to face was in 2015 Champions league final in Berlin where Barcelona took home it’s 5th UEFA Champions league trophy. However, the Catalans are lacking consistency and motivation to get things going in their direction. So there is a chance that we will be watching Juventus progressing to the semi-final.
