Real Madrid to face Barcelona after progressing to the Champions League quarter-finals
Defending champions Real Madrid have secured their spot in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after a 6-2 aggregate win against Liverpool. The Spanish giants clinched a 1-0 victory at Bernabeu in the second leg, with Karim Benzema scoring the decisive goal in the 78th minute. Despite Liverpool’s attacking line-up featuring Mohamed Salah, Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, and Cody Gakpo, they struggled to break down Real Madrid’s defense and were unable to overturn their 5-2 deficit from the first leg. Real Madrid dominated the match, with Liverpool’s goalkeeper Alisson Becker making several saves to keep the scoreline respectable.
Real Madrid‘s focus now shifts back to La Liga, with a crucial match against league leaders Barcelona on Sunday. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s Champions League campaign has come to an end, and they will not be in action again until April 1 when they travel to face Premier League champions Manchester City.
