Bayern advance 7-1 as Liverpool knock Inter Milan out of Champions League

Bayern and Liverpool, in very different days, advanced this Tuesday (8) to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. The German team, with ease, and the English team, with difficulty, confirmed their favoritism and placed themselves among the eight in the next phase of the competition.

Bayern’s place was secured with a rout. After a 1-1 draw in the first leg in Austria, the team led by Julian Nagelsmann won 7-1 in Munich. The match was decided quickly and without scares.

In 23 minutes, top scorer Robert Lewandowski had already scored three times, two of them from a penalty. Gnabry, still in the first half, and Müller, in the beginning of the second, extended. Kjaergaard discounted in the final part, but Müller and Sané gave final numbers to the massacre.

In Liverpool, there was more emotion. The English team, who had won the first leg away from home by 2-0, had problems in their domains and lost 1-0. Lautaro Martínez scored a great goal, with a shot from the angle, 16 minutes into the final stage, and Survived Inter.

There was still a goal for the Italian club to at least force extra time, an attempt hampered by the expulsion of Alexis Sánchez, at 18, for a tackle on Brazilian Fabinho. With one less, the Milan team had problems looking for attack and classification.

The round of 16 of the Champions League will continue this Wednesday (9), with two matches. In Madrid, after defeat by 1-0 in France, Real Madrid will try to turn the confrontation with Paris Saint-Germain. Manchester City, who won 5-0 against Sporting in Portugal, will play at home.

The other four clashes will take place next week. On Tuesday (15), there will be Manchester United x Atlético de Madrid (1-1 in Spain) and Ajax x Benfica (2-2 in Portugal). On Wednesday (16), the games will be Juventus v Villarreal (1-1 in Spain) and Lille v Chelsea (2-0 for Chelsea in England).
