Champions League: Man City, Liverpool qualify for semi-final

Firmino vs Benfica UCL

Manchester City and Liverpool are the last two teams to qualify for the semi-final of the Champions League.

Pep Guardiola’s men secured their place in the Champions League last four for the second consecutive season after a fiery 0-0 draw with Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano on Wednesday saw them progress 1-0 on aggregate.

Kevin de Bruyne’s goal at the Etihad last week proved to be decisive against an Atletico side that showed more attacking endeavor in front of their own fans but lacked a cutting edge over the two matches.

Liverpool are through despite a nervy 3-3 draw with Benfica at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp’s men progress with a 6-4 aggregate, as they won 3-1 in Portugal last week.

Liverpool will now play Villarreal for a place in the final, while Manchester City take on Real Madrid who eliminated Chelsea.
