Of course, we have been made to always expect the unexpected. One of the surprises is that the 3-time consecutive defending Champions Real Madrid will not be in the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Draw 2019. They were eliminated by Ajax.
In the round of 16, we had lots of twists and turns and comebacks. Manchester United became the first-ever team to qualify after losing the first leg 2-0 at home. No team has ever overturned a 2-0 first leg home defeat. But they did. Against PSG. Man City thrashed sorry Schalke 04 7-0 to win 10-2 on aggregate.
Also, a Cristiano Ronaldo-inspired Juventus oveturned a 2-0 away defeat against Atletico Madrid 3-0 (3-2 aggregate). That is what CR7 gives to his team anytime, any day. Messi wasn’t to be left out as he led Barca with 2 goals and 2 assists to trounce Lyon 5-1 at the Camp Nou.
Bayern were defeated 1-3 at home by the energetic Klopp-led Liverpool team. After drawing goalless away, Bayern had the advantage but failed to make it count. Roma also lost out to FC Porto with a 4-3 aggregate score. The winner coming in extra time. So, who faces who in the UEFA Champions League Quarter Final Draw 2019?
