Champions League: The Quarter Finals

This week has been a good one in the football world. The resumption of the much loved Champions League took place on Tuesday and Wednesday evening, with 4 big games being played.


Speaking of big games, we have some extremely important ones coming up in our Talent Identification Events in April and May. Register your interest in them HERE.


These games were Man City vs Dortmund, Real Madrid vs Liverpool, Bayern Munich vs PSG and Porto vs Chelsea.


Man City vs Dortmund: 2-1


This game was filled with controversy, with the highlighting moment being in the 37th minute when City keeper Ederson - who is well known for his usually excellent composure on the ball and distribution abilities, received the ball just outside his box when he tried to control it and was immediately pressed by England starlet Jude Bellingham. The Dortmund youngster nicked the ball off of him and slotted it into an empty net, only for it to be ruled out for a foul on Ederson.


It was a very controversial decision by the Romanian official, who promptly blew his whistle so that VAR could not intervene without a check. Replays show that the ball was cleanly won and that the goal probably should have stood.


It took until the 84th minute when Marco Reus equalised for the Black & Yellow with a tidy finish. It looked like Dortmund were going to hang on for a very good result heading back to Germany until English prodigy and wonderkid Phil Foden slotted a winner in the 90th minute from an intelligent cut-back from Ilkay Gundogan.


Heartbreak for Dortmund, but they have a crucial away goal to take back to the Signal Iduna Park, although they would feel that they deserved more from the first tie.


Real Madrid vs Liverpool: 3-1
