Champions League 1


Manchester City made a huge impression in the last 16 of the Champions League, when they were the ones who ended RB Leipzig’s adventure in the continental competition with a devastating victory. Manchester City had a difficult time in the round of 16, they were held to a 1-1 draw at RB Leipzig. But back at home, England’s representative came back too strong with a 7-0 victory with the brilliant shine of Erling Haaland when the Norwegian star got 5 goals into the opponent’s net. In the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season, the Etihad Stadium team had a very dramatic match with Atletico Madrid.     The score was 0-0 before Kevin De Bruyne had a classy finish in the 70th minute to give the Manchester team the victory. Manchester City’s 2 rare winless matches in the 2022/23 Champions League group stage are against FC Copenhagen and Borussia Dortmund (both 0-0). In the last 4 times against German teams, coach Pep Guardiola’s army won 2 and drew 2 matches.   Bayern Munich played very well in the previous round. They won 1-0 away from Paris Saint Germain in the first leg of the round of 16, even the German team continued to have a 2-0 victory over the Ligue 1 champions right at the Allianz Arena in the second leg. To reach the quarterfinals for the 4th time in a row since the 2019/20 season. Two illustrious names of continental football have met before. Gray Lobster won only 2 wins in 6 times against Manchester City in all competitions.   And they did not win in the last 2 matches against The Citizens. In addition, in the last 4 matches between the two teams, Bayern Munich lost 3 matches. It is noteworthy that Bayern Munich have not won in the quarter-finals of the Champions League in the last 2 seasons (lost 2). Moreover, the away record of Gray Lobster is also quite erratic when they won 2 but also lost 2 in the last 4 matches.
