Real Madrid and Chelsea repeat;  City and Bayern doomed to collide

Real Madrid and Chelsea will meet again like last season in the Champions League quarterfinals, in which Manchester City and Bayern Munich will face each other in the toughest duel; Milan and Naples will star in the Italian tie and Benfica and Inter Milan will solve the other cross.

If this phase is overcome, Real Madrid will continue to defend the title against the winner of Manchester City-Bayern in the semifinals, in which, as in the quarterfinals and unlike last year, they will have to play the second leg away from the Santiago Bernabéu, a determining factor in the achievement of the fourteenth in Paris.

The semifinals will be played on 9/10 and 16/17 May and in case of reaching the final on June 10 in Istanbul, the team led by the Italian Carlo Ancelotti would act as the local, against the one that overcomes the semifinal between the winners of the clashes Milan-Naples and Benfica-Inter.

The hands of the Turkish Amit Altintop and the Dutch Patrick Kluivert, former white player the first and of clubs like Barcelona and Valencia the second, matched Real Madrid and Chelsea in the UEFA draw in Nyon again, a cross that occurred last season and also the previous one, when the English became the last team to defeat Madrid and won their second title after defeating City.

Last year Real Madrid removed that thorn and on one of the magical nights at the Bernabéu they came back from a match, in which they missed the two-goal advantage they brought from London but were able to qualify for the semifinals after extra time with a goal from Karimn Benzema.

Now, and with the best version they show in the “Champions”, Carlo Ancelotti’s men reach the quarterfinals after knocking out Liverpool, in the reunion of both teams after the last final, with the resounding 2-5 at Anfield and the minimal 1-0 victory two days ago at home.

Chelsea, champion in 2011-12 and 2020-21, grabs hold of the Champions League in a season in which it seemed ruled out, but now qualified for the quarterfinals thanks to the 2-0 win over Dortmund in the round of 16 round played in London (2-1 on aggregate).
