For the first time in the history of the Champions League one country has 4 sides among the remaining 8. Liverpool became the 4th EPL side to advance to the quarterfinals in the Champions League with a 1-0 (3-0) aggregate victory over Inter Milan. Already down 0-2 to start the evening with a mountain to climb, Milan gave up the decider early in the second half.

EPL powerhouse Liverpool and Champions League Staple Inter Milan will battle to see who will punch the last ticket to the final 8 sides of the knockout stage. However Inter face an almost impossible task already being down 0-2 on aggregate. They will have to play a perfect match otherwise 50% of the remaining sides will reside in the EPL. 5 of the other 7 are familiar faces with Fenervache and Shalke 04, being the newcomers to the “great 8”, with Real and Milan the conspicuous no shows at the final table. From here on expect the cream to rise with powerful EPL sides Man U, Arsenal, and Chelsea still in the mix.
