The first leg of the quarter finals have come to an end and it certainly was eventful. I’m going to give y’all a summary of all that happened.
Tottenham vs Manchester City
In a game that was looking like a mismatch on paper was certainly a surprise to everyone as Tottenham came out on top.
The game was Tottenham’s first European game in their new stadium and fans hoped it’ll be a good a game I guess they weren’t disappointed. Manchester City had the opportunity to get ahead when Sergio Aguero had a penalty but Hugo Lloris was up to the task and saved it keeping his team in the game. Both team fired blanks and the game looked like it was headed towards a draw but Hueng min Son scored a goal just before the final whistle to hand Tottenham a 1-0 lead.
Liverpool vs Porto
Porto who qualified by away goals came up against a Dominant Liverpool side and the score went how everyone expected.
With one first half goals from Naby keita and Roberto Firmino respectively. Keita who hasn’t been a regular in the Liverpool squad is beginning to find his stride and making his mark
Ajax Vs Juventus
Ajax who have the youngest side in the competition came up against an experienced Juventus side.
Cristiano Ronaldo came back from the injury he sustained during the euros qualifiers and scored a fantastic header to hand Juve a first half lead over Ajax.
By second Ajax showed their determination and dominated for a better part of the second half and as expected Neres was the one who stepped up and put them level. The Ajax side kept asking questions but the Juventus keeper was up to the task and the game ended draw but Juventus have the advantage due to away goals rule
Manchester United vs Barcelona
This is probably the biggest game of this round due to the history between both teams Since Manchester United Second best to Barcelona in their last encounter.
Barcelona controlled the first half and Manchester United was all over the place it was only a matter of time before a goal would be scored. A header by Luis Suarez made Luke Shaw score a Own Goal and that was the only goal.
We all remember the Tweet from Smalling saying he knows a secret to stop Messi and I guess he showed us what it was.
Will there be shocks in this Round of the Champions League?! We just have to find out
