As the Champions League Round of 16 2nd legs came to a close, mouth-watering clashes are poised to take place in the quarter-finals.


Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund are two Germans teams to have made the final eight after securing comfortable victories over Lazio & Sevilla respectively.

Bayern recorded a 6-2 aggregate win whereas Dortmund registered a 5-4 aggregate victory over the Spanish giants.

This will be the first time in history the UEFA Champions League witnesses four managers from the same nationality make the quarter-finals – all the four being Germans.

Both Bayern & Dortmund are led by two German coaches in Hansi Flick and Edin Terzic.

In England, giants Liverpool and Chelsea are managed by two highly respectable Germans themselves – Jurgen Klopp & Thomas Tuchel, respectively.


Liverpool dispatched Julian Nagelsmann’s RB Leipzig, who put in underwhelming performances over two legs and Chelsea ousted Diego Simeone’s stern Atletico Madrid side without conceding a single goal, both home and away.
