Seville battering Dortmund here but one attack and Haaland scores for Dortmund!

Dortmund leading 4-2 on aggregate with 45 minutes left.

Porto leading Juventus 1-0 at half-time and 3-1 on aggregate. Porto scored a very soft penalty leaving Juventus with it all to do in the second half.

A moment of stupidity from Porto. Two yellow cards in 2 minutes for Mehdi and Porto are down to 10 men. Juventus have scored twice since to level the game and must be favourites to progress now.

Meanwhile, Haaland has added a second for Dortmund who now lead 5-3 on aggregate - for me, he is the best player in Europe at the minute...an absolute beast.

And Juventus crash out on away goals after extra-time.

Two fairly gutting Champions League exits in a row at the first knockout stage to inferior teams for Juventus now. The 'Ronaldo gamble' would seem like a bit of a failure at this stage.

Juventus have been knocked out of the champions league the last 3 seasons by Ajax, Lyon and Porto, three clubs deemed not fit for the European super league by Agnelli, the Juventus chairman. You love to see it.

Every Barcelona attack breaks down when Dembele is involved. He doesn't add anything to the team - surely they have better options?

21 shots tonight from Barca and 1 goal. Meanwhile, back in Spain, Luis Suarez scored his 18th goal in 22 games to send Atletico 6 points clear in La Liga.

That decision to sell him must rank as one of the dumbest of modern times.

If ever a team was there for the taking, it was PSG last night. Barcelona will be kicking themselves.

Dembele and Griezmann don't fit in there at all.

First time since 05/06 season a team involving Messi or Ronaldo won't be in the Champions League Quarter Final.

This season really feels like the emergence of Haaland and Mbappe replacing Messi and Ronaldo as the two at the very top IMO.

Absolutely. Although another 7 or 8 years of doing it will be necessary to elevate both of them to a similar overall standing.

Excellent result for Chelsea

Atletico offered no threat up front at all, just nothing. Or maybe it's that their midfield never allowed them to create any threat. They're not the defensive unit they used to be either. Them and Barca don't say much about the quality of the Spanish league at the moment.

On the Chelsea side, a solid, composed performance, albeit lucky not to give away a penalty. As an aside, Reece James looks just awful every time I see him play.

  1. Borussia Dortmund
  2. Porto
  3. PSG
  4. Liverpool
  5. Man City

I'm sure Porto are the team most will want, and Bayern are the one most will look to avoid.

Lovely goal by Marco Reus. No more than Dortmund deserve. You can't miss the chances City have tonight, and hope to progress. All to play for in the return leg.

Edit: No sooner have I posted this and Phil Foden pops up with a second goal for City. Foden could not miss that. Great play from Gundogan.
