The Champions League quarter-finals are :
1. Atlético Madrid v Leicester City
Atletico were the 2016 runners-up have firepower.
They beat Leverkusen 4-2 in Germany in the R16 first leg
2. Borussia Dortmund v Monaco
Wow! Bring a cricket scoreboard.The first leg could be 7-5.
3. Bayern Munich v Real Madrid
Lewandowski won’t join Bale till Ronaldo leaves
4. Juventus v Barcelona
Guess how many goals Juventus have conceded in their 8 matches so far?
In the round of 16, and the group games, Juventus have only conceded 2 goals.
Leicester midfielder Marc Albrighton (27), who scored against Sevilla in midweek, was given a free transfer by Aston Villa in May 2014 and Tony Barton was the Craig Shakespeare of 1982.
Because Tony won the European Cup with Ron Saunders’s team.
Aston Villa beat Bayern Munich 1-0 in the 1982 final in Rotterdam, Peter Wythe scoring the goal.
The year before, Liverpool had beaten Real Madrid 1-0 in Paris with a goal by left back Alan Kennedy.
In 1979, Brian Clough’s Nottingham Forest had beaten Malmo 1-0 in Munich and then beat Hamburg 1-0 in Madrid to retain it in 1980.
What an achievement! But enough nostalgia.
Let’s forget about Besiktas and Ludogorets and enjoy the thrills of the European Cup and look forward to another rocking night at the King Power.
Juventus keeper Gigi Buffon said he didn’t want Leicester.
Maybe he’ll get them in the semi-final.
