Dortmund and Munich need 2 away goals to have any chance of progressing
Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich both suffered 1st leg home defeats in their respective Champions League quarter-final ties and will now need to score at least 2 goals in the reverse fixtures to keep alive their hopes of securing a semi- final spot.
The Dortmund – Monaco tie was overshadowed by the bus attack but 2 goals from the much sought after Kylian Mbappe put the French outfit firmly in the box seat.
Ronaldo helped himself to a brace for Real Madrid in their 2-1 victory at the Allianz Arena and the reigning European champions are also on course for domestic glory. Even though they opted to field a second string XI at Sporting Gijon over the weekend, a stoppage time goal from Isco was enough to secure all 3 points.
Goals are expected at both venues when the Champions League quarter-final ties are concluded.
Leicester City were far from happy with the penalty decision that gifted Atletico Madrid a 1-0 1st leg victory but the Foxes are still very much in the tie. However, breaking down a defence that seldom concedes in knockout ties looks a tall order and Leicester’s failure to secure an away goal is likely to prove costly.
Juventus are not expected to show the same sort of naivety which PSG displayed in the ’round of 16′ and are expected to fend off ‘comeback kings’ Barcelona.
It promises to be a really high-scoring round so expect some big scores across the various daily fantasy football slates this week!
