The round of 16 is over! It’s time to take stock: here are the teams qualified for the next stage, the quarterfinals.
The round of 16 of the Champions League offered a lot of goals and suspense. Some stars, like Haaland with five roses planted on Tuesday night for example, have shone. And these players are not satiated, they want to continue their journey as far as possible.
The statistics show Real Madrid’s dominance: after this round of 16, possession is mathematically in their favor (54% against 46% for Liverpool FC). Real Madrid also had the most serious situations with 6 shots on target against 5 shots on target for Liverpool FC and therefore wins quite logically (1-0) in this 8th final.
The Reds’ coach Jürgen Klopp paid a tribute to the Madrid team, first for their performance in this double confrontation but also for the nice attention of having greeted, at the Santiago Bernabeu, the club of the Mersey with the traditional song “You’ll never walk alone”.
Is Real the big favorite in C1? Klopp is clear: “Yes, because of their experience, but there are very strong teams. Whoever wants to win the Champions League will have to beat Madrid and Manchester City.”
Author of a quintuple, Erling Håland made an XXL performance during the festival of Manchester City against RB Leipzig (7-0) this Tuesday in the 8th round of the Champions League. After the draw (1-1) in the first leg, the Skyblues are obviously qualified.
