The first four teams have booked their place in the Champions League last-eight. 

Real Madrid, Liverpool, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City all came out on top over two legs to secure their place in the quarter-finals.

And in a tale that is becoming all-too familiar, PSG have been knocked out of the UCL.

Despite being in cruise control going into the second half thanks to a Kylian Mbappé goal that put them 2-0 on aggregate against Real Madrid, it all soon fell apart.

Karim Benzema kickstarted the comeback just after the hour mark, before a quick-fire double saw him complete a hat-trick and turn the tie on its head.

PSG had no response yet again, and the Champions League trophy remains elusive to them.

Elsewhere in the Champions League, Liverpool may count themselves lucky that they avoided extra-time and penalties in their second leg against Inter Milan.

The Reds won the reverse fixture away from home comfortably 2-0, but the home tie was did not quite live up to expectations.

A rocket from Lautaro Martínez on the hour mark gave the Italian side hope, but that quickly faded when Alexis Sánchez was sent off for a second yellow card offence.

With an aggregate score of 2-1, Jurgen Klopp’s side booked their place in the last-eight.

They are joined by fellow English club Manchester City.

The Citizens thrashed Sporting Lisbon 5-0 away from home, but the two were unable to find a goal between them in the reverse leg leaving it to finish 0-0.

Bayern Munich were subject to a surprise draw against RB Salzburg two weeks ago, but made no mistakes this time round.

The German giants shipped seven goals past their opponents, with Salzburg responding just the once.

Unsurprisingly, Robert Lewandowski was the main man once again as he bagged himself a hat trick to see his side through.

The next round of second leg fixtures will take place March 15-16.
