REAL MADRID QUALIFIES FOR UCL SEMI FINAL, KNOCKS LIVERPOOL OUT

Liverpool lost the first leg 3-1 to Real Madrid in Spain and thus needed a minimum of a 2-0 win over Real Madrid to edge out the reigning La Liga champions, but they failed to get the needed result and settled for a barren draw after squandering several glaring chances.

Just like it was when the Reds were in an even more precarious situation when they came back from a 3-0 deficit to shock Barcelona 4-0 in 2019, there was that believe that another miracle could happen but it was never to be.

Though Liverpool threatened their opponents on a number of occasions as Real goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois had a busy day and was drawn into two excellent saves from Mohamed Salah and James Milner respectively in the first 15 minutes. Georginio Wijnaldum also came close before the half-time whistle.

Madrid also had their own moments especially when Karim Benzema struck the post in the 20th minute.

Though chances were created at Anfield, both sides failed to hit the target but Real Madrid were the happier at the end as they progressed with a 3-1 aggregate score line.

Those that have qualified for the semi final of the UEFA Champions League are:

Chelsea vs Real Madrid

Manchester City vs Paris Saint Germain.
