The day of the Wednesday in the UEFA Champions League closed the eighth of final without surprises. Real Madrid and Napoli did to cost the advantage obtained in the gone out of house and imposed to Liverpool (1-0) and Eintracht Frankfurt (3-0) to add to Benfica, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, AC Milan, Manchester City and Inter of Milan in the following phase of direct elimination, where there is clear English command and Italian. Inevitably, this will bring some crossing between teams of the same country. Like this they passed the eighth of final of the League of Champions, with disappointments and interesting surprises.
Benfica v Witches: Absolute command luso
The Benfica did not have rival in eighth. The ones of Roger Schmidt crushed to some Witches come to less after leaving on the way to the Athletic of Madrid in the phase of groups. The Belgian fell home without discussion (0-2) and consummated his bad moment with a hard goleada in Lisbon (5-1) that had to Gonçalo Bouquets (doublet) in stellar role. In chambers, the lusos can be an authentic 'coconut', as already it went it the Villarreal the past edition.
Chelsea v Dortmund: The 'blues' reacted to time
Perhaps the most entertained key of the eighth. The Borussia Dortmund did to respect his house with a triumph by the minimum (1-0) that sharpened the crisis of the ones of Graham Potter, but the English reacted in London with so many of Raheem Sterling and Kai Havetz (of penalti, with controversy) and attained to trace back in a party very parejo that defined by details. Chelsea of the more than 600 'kilos' in reinforcements is alive and looks for a new 'orejona'.
Bayern Munich v Paris Saint-Germain: The Bavarians consummated another ridiculous Parisian
A classical of the last seasons that went back to evidenciar the failure of the sportive project qatarí. Paris Saint-Germain of Leo Messi consummated his enésimo ridiculous in Champions being unable to convert at least a goal to the Bayern Munich in 180 minutes. The Bavarians handled the eliminatory appealing to his experience and, with the 3-0 global, consolidate like the best team of the tournament, invicto and with plenary of victories up to now.
AC Milan v Tottenham: Heroic classification 'rossoneri'
Another team that follows without raising head is the Tottenham. In front of the AC Milan, the ones of Antonio Conte left to happen an opportunity inmejorable to trascend in Europe and remained went by a goal of Brahim Díaz turned into the beginning of the party of gone in Italy. The 'rossoneris' have replaced of a beginning of 2023 for the forget and, like champions defenders of the Series To, confirm the return of the 'Calcium' to the European leadership.
Manchester City v Leipzig: With Haaland was more than sufficient for the 'cityzens'
The Manchester City left a lot of doubts in the gone in front of the Leipzig in Germany (1-1), but Erling Haaland commissioned to resolve the eliminatory by own account with a historical exhibition. The Norwegian shattered to the group directed by Marco Rose with five goals in 57 minutes (could be more, but Pep Guardiola replaced him in the 63') and the 'cityzens' destroyed to the Leipzig with an unappealable 7-0 that revives his favouritism to arrive to Istanbul.
Inter Of Milan v Carry: The 'wall nerazzurri' is of return
The eliminatory more couple of the eighth of final. Inter And Carry hardly took out advantage with a goal of Romelu Lukaku in the gone contested in Italy (1-0) and, in spite of the Portuguese siege in the final stretch of the crash of turn, the 'wall nerazzurri' resisted the zero to advance to chambers. Of the eight qualifiers, the ones of Simone Inzaghi well can seem the feeblest, but are not a rival of fiar. The FC Barcelona can confirm it.
Real Madrid v Liverpool: The forcefulness 'merengue' did the difference
The key that reedited the final of the past edition of the League of Champions did not disappoint in the gone, but yes in the turn. After a spectacular 2-5 in Anfield, the ones of Carlo Ancelotti played with the advantage and finished the eliminatory with a triumph by the minimum in Santiago Bernabéu (1-0). Both parties were opened, but the forcefulness 'merengue' punished the inefficiency of a Liverpool unknown in the last months.
Napoli v Eintracht: The 'partenopeos' go very seriously this year
The last eliminatory of eighth had an indisputable command 'partenopeo'. The ones of Luciano Spalletti won the two parties without receiving goals (0-2 and 3-0) and consolidate like one of the rivals to fear in chambers, after a fantastic season in which they have dominated the Series To with fist of iron (have 18 points of advantage on his escort, the Inter) and, in Champions, hardly add a fall in front of the Liverpool in the last day of the phase of groups, totally unimportant.
