This Friday, in Nyon (12:00 noon), the draw for the quarterfinals and semifinals of the Champions League, with eight survivors and a poster of authentic luxury. With three Spanish representatives (Real Madrid, Atlético and Villarreal), three English (Liverpool, City and Chelsea), a German (Bayern) and a Portuguese (Benfica), the draw promises strong emotions.
Without a doubt, the great bones for the representatives of LaLiga Santander are the City of Pep Guardiola, the Liverpool of Jurgen Klopp and the bayern by Julian Nagelsmann, without forgetting the Chelseacurrent champion, despite the tremendous difficulties in which he has to live after the sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich, who put the club up for sale to try to ensure its survival.
City and Liverpool are the two great, and almost only, candidates for the Premier League, which saves any further comment on their potential.
The Liverpool accumulates seven wins in eight games in the current Champions League, where only Inter was able to defeat him (0-1 in the round of 16, at Anfield), with 19 goals scored and seven conceded. The balance of City contemplate five winsone draw and two defeats, with 23 goals for and 10 against.
The bayernwith his umpteenth Bundesliga on the horizon, presents the best figures of the participants: eight games, seven wins and one draw, 30 goals for and only 5 against. His last performance, a 7-1 against Salzburg on Bavarian soil to dispel any doubts that the 1-1 first leg of the round of 16 could have left.
The Chelseathird in the Premier, 11 points behind City, is presented as a ‘coconut’ despite his circumstances and on a lower step is the benfica12 behind Porto in the Portuguese League, surely the most affordable team of all those left in the running.
The lottery Friday will be purewithout any condition, risking the first leg of the rooms on April 5 and 6 and the return, on the 12 and 13 of the same month. The semi-finals, which will also be drawn this Friday, They are scheduled for April 26 and 27 for the first leg and for May 3 and 4 for the return leg.
