UEFA Champions League quarter final results

PSG 0-1 Bayern Munich (agg. 3-3)

So there goes defending champions Bayern out of the Champions League. The Bavarians fought had bought that first leg defeat in Munich has proven to be costly. Neymar was the man on fire for PSG tonight, but it is worth remembering that it is thanks to Kylian Mbappe’s goals that the Parisians are in the semis –the same man that ousted Barcelona!

Paris St-Germain will face either Man City or Borussia Dortmund in the semis.

Chelsea 0-1 Porto (agg. 2-1)

Like a dream, Chelsea’s quest for a second Champions League crown continues. The Londoners did most of the work in the first leg, and tonight was more like a group match. At least until late on when Mehdi Taremi scored that one heck of an overhead kick -absolute stunner that was. However, Chelsea held on to progress on aggregate.

A semi-final date with either Real Madrid or Liverpool awaits the Blues.
