Liverpool have been struggling in domestic football but they have been enjoying perfect form in the Champions League so far this season. They are yet to lose a game in Europe which makes most of their fans believe that Liverpool would win the European title once again to make up for their inconsistent form in the Premier League.
As for Real Madrid, they have not been having the best of the season, especially in the league. But the club is expected to do the unthinkable at this stage of the competition which they last featured in during the 2017-2018 season.
Hence, Liverpool vs Real Madrid fixture is expected to be one of the most explosive fixtures of the quarter-finals round of the competition. It is a repetition of the 2018 Champions League final which Madrid won.
Another fixture that football fans are looking forward to is the one between Bayern Munich and Paris Saint Germain. It is a repetition of the 2020 UEFA Champions League final and PSG would try to take revenge on the German champions.
Recall that PSG knocked out FC Barcelona at the round of 16 stage of the competition without the club’s talisman Neymar. Hence, football fans would want to see if PSG can pull another stunning performance to progress further in the competition.
While Chelsea will be tested by Portuguese side Porto in the quarter-finals stage of the competition. The Portuguese side knocked out Juventus in the previous round which shows how serious they are in this season’s campaign.
As for Manchester City, they will continue to prove how unstoppable they are this season by trying to knock out German side Borussia Dortmund. City are yet to lose a game in the ongoing campaign and would not want to start losing at this stage of the competition.
