UEFA Champions League semi-finalists confirmed
Manchester City, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea have all won their quarter-final matches.
The Champions League semi-finalists were fully confirmed today after Manchester City and Real Madrid managed to beat their opponents over two sets. They will be joined by Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, who achieved the same feat yesterday.
Manchester City were tasked with defeating Borussia Dortmund in two matches to advance to the semi-finals and they ultimately pulled it off, despite a shaky start that defeated them 1-0 (2-2 on aggregate). They eventually managed to win the draw 2-1 (4-2 overall) with goals from Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden.
The other English team playing tonight, Liverpool, could not qualify like their neighbors. It was a goalless draw between them and Real Madrid tonight, but the latter’s 3-1 win in the first was enough to propel them to the semi-finals.
Chelsea managed to beat Porto in two matches last night while Paris Saint-Germain scored away goals against Bayern Munich, despite losing 1-0 on the night.
The appointments and dates of the semi-finals have already been confirmed. Chelsea will face Real Madrid while Manchester City take on Paris Saint-Germain, which means there is every chance that we can see an all-English final. The semi-finals will be played between April 27 and May 5.
The final will then be played on Saturday May 29 at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul.
The 2020/21 semi-finals are set ✅
