Italy is having a season of great success as three football teams have secured their places in the quarter-finals of this year's Champions League: AC Milan, Inter Milan, and Napoli. England is represented by two teams, Chelsea and Man City.
The round of 16 of the UEFA Champions League this year was exciting and dramatic, but there were not too many surprises. The two big games, Bayern Munich - Paris Saint Germain and Real Madrid - Liverpool, ended with victories for the more experienced teams.
Bayern Munich continued to demonstrate their class in European football by beating Paris in both legs. The reigning champions, Real Madrid, also convincingly defeated Liverpool with a total score of 6-2.
The defeat of Paris Saint Germain meant that there were no French representatives in the quarter-finals this year. Liverpool and Tottenham were the two English representatives who were knocked out in the round of 16.
Although Liverpool was eliminated, English football still has two representatives in the quarter-finals, after victories over German teams. Chelsea came from behind to beat Dortmund, while Man City convincingly defeated RB Leipzig.
Portugal has only one representative in the quarter-finals, Benfica, after two dominant wins against Club Brugge. Spain and Germany have only one team each in the quarter-finals, but both are strong contenders for the championship: Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.
Italian football dominates the quarter-finals, with three representatives: Napoli, AC Milan, and Inter Milan. While the two Milan teams struggled to overcome Tottenham and Porto, Napoli completely dominated the German team, Frankfurt.
The draw for the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League 2022-2023 will take place on March 17th at the headquarters of the European football governing body (UEFA) in Nyon, Switzerland.
