Bayern Munich v Manchester City (0-3 agg.)
Thomas Tuchel’s reign as the Bayern Munich manager has got off to a stuttering start, with the club only 2 points ahead of Dortmund in the Bundesliga and the champions on the verge of European elimination.
Bayern Munich put out a shambolic display against City in the first leg, though a great deal of that could be explained due to City’s superb performance.
The German champions have a mountain to climb if they wish to progress to the semi-finals, and they’ll need to hope that City wholeheartedly collapse along the way. Considering how strong Guardiola’s men were in the first leg, this seems incredibly unlikely.
It really is feeling like Manchester City’s year, however their fans will tell you that they’ve seen many false dawns before.
Bayern Munich v Manchester City, Allianz Arena, 18th April, kick-off at 8pm GMT.
Napoli v AC Milan (0-1 agg.)
Napoli may be dominating in Serie A, but their recent losses to AC Milan in both domestic and European competition will be a cause for concern.
Milan have far more Champions League experience than Napoli, and they’ll undoubtedly use that as leverage in the second-leg. The seven-time winners have endured a 15-year dry spell in the Champions League, but it finally looks like Italian football is having a renaissance with three teams still left in the competition.
Napoli star Victor Osihmen will miss out due to his injury, but Tanguy Ndombele is set to return from his suspension.
Napoli v AC Milan, Diego Maradona Stadium, 18th April, kick-off at 8 pm GMT.
Inter Milan v Benfica (2-0 agg.)
Benfica always seem to do well in the Champions League, but it looks as though their luck for this season has run out as they trail Inter Milan 2-0.
Romelu Lukaku was on the scoresheet last time out, and the Belgian will be chasing his first-ever Champions League crown. Benfica have won the competition twice, but they’ll need to produce an impressive turnaround away from home if they wish to advance to the final four.
Inter Milan are chasing a third Champions League title themselves, and it looks likely they’ll be advancing to the semis.
Inter Milan v Benfica, San Siro, 18 April, kick-off 8 pm GMT.
Chelsea v Real Madrid (0-2 agg.)
Frank Lampard’s first European game of his second-spell as Chelsea boss ended in a limp 2-0 defeat for the Blues, with Chelsea ending the game with 10 men following Ben Chillwell’s dismissal.
Chelsea and Real Madrid represent the past two Champions League winners, though the former has endured its worst season in recent memory. Madrid may not achieve league glory in 22/23, but a 15th Champions League title would surely satisfy the vast majority of their supporters.
The heights of the 2020/21 final seem like a distant memory for Chelsea fans, and most of them are praying that this season comes to an end as soon as possible. The London club haven’t scored 3 goals in a game since October 8, so them doing so against Real Madrid seems incredibly unlikely.
Chelsea v Real Madrid, Stamford Bridge, 18 April, kick-off at 8 pm GMT.
