All fights of the Champions League quarter-finals of the 2018/19 season are finished. Four England representatives are among the clubs that made their way into the next stage of the tournament.

Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United made an incredible comeback in the confrontation with PSG, City didn’t leave chances to Schalke 04, and Liverpool were stronger than Bayern Munich.

The last time when four Premier League representatives reached that stage of the playoffs dates back to 2009. In the 2008/09 season’s quarter-finals, Liverpool and Chelsea met with each other, Manchester United played with Porto, and Arsenal had Villarreal as their rivals. In the semifinals, Manchester United beat Arsenal and then won the trophy.

Also, another interesting fact emerged. There will be no German team in the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time since 2006.

As mentioned above, Bayern lost to Liverpool and Schalke 04 fell were outclassed by Pep Guardiola and his City. Another German representative in this tournament – Hoffenheim – didn’t manage to qualify into the playoffs.
