Champions League Quarter-Final Draw Review, Predictions and Creators Reactions

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich 

“Fairly equal matchup for me with Bayern as favourites” ~A for Arsenal (Daksh)

Arsenal vs Bayern Munich will be a thriller Champions League quarter-final clash! The young Gunners have been on fire in the Premier League but face their toughest European test yet against the German giants.

Arsenal and Bayern Munich have their history in this competition with Bayern Munich having the top hand. But the Context of this game is different as Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal are flying while on the other hand, Bayern Munich are Struggling with consistency under Thomas Tuchel. 

Early predictions 

On Current form Arsenal does have a slight edge over Bayern Munich, However, if you put things in context, Arsenal are in a three-horse title race in the Premier League and they cannot afford to slip up. 

Bayern Munich on the other knows that the only chance of Silverware they have this season is the UEFA Champions League, and they still have a quality squad who can step up in the big moments thus I feel Bayern Munich might just edge past Arsenal in this one. 

Atletico Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund

“The draw was so favorable for Atletico Madrid that they must be eyeing the final” ~Divyansh

Well On Paper this seems to be the least exciting fixture of the draw and Atletico Madrid will be the happiest team walking out of tonight’s draw considering the opponents they could have faced. 

However, underestimating Dortmund could prove to be costly as they topped the Group of Death ahead of the likes of PSG and AC Milan. Dortmund themselves will be happy with the draw as well. 

Early Predictions

One thing that is sure about this tie is that it will not be a dull affair, but I’m expecting Simone’s Men to comfortably get through to the Semi-Finals. 

Real Madrid vs Manchester City 

“City & Real Madrid are the biggest losers of the draw as both were clear favorites prior to the draw”~Pranay

“Real Madrid are in the worst condition as they have a few key players out with injury”~ Divyansh

Yep, It’s Happening Again!  For the third time in a row, we will have Real Madrid going up against Manchester City in the UEFA Champions League. 

A Couple of Years back this tie ended in a heartbreak for City fans as Rodrgyo stole to victory in the injury time and eventually Real Madrid won their 14th UCL Title.

But the very next season Manchester City came back and how…They Humiliated Real Madrid 4-0 at the Etihad to progress to the Final and Win their first UCL Title. 

The third chapter of this rivalry is gonna be a thriller Real Madrid have a new look Midfield with Jude Bellingham leading the charge and Manchester City are not slowing down after their treble and this is the time of the season when Man City becomes ruthless. 

Early predictions 

This is going to be the Box office match of this year’s Champions League and predicting the outcome won’t be easy. 

On Paper Manchester City are a far more balanced side than Real Madrid and Real Madrid are also struggling with a lot of injuries thus Man City has a clear advantage going into this tie. 

However, In the Champions League, it doesn’t matter what the situation is because Real Madrid operates on a different level in this competition and they always turn up. 

With that being said I’m expecting Manchester City to just edge past Real Madrid and make it to the Semis. 

Barcelona vs PSG

“PSG & Barcelona is football heritage if as a Barca fan, I had to choose between Man City/Real Madrid/PSG, I’d take PSG every day” ~Muktesh

Barcelona will be facing PSG in the UCL quarter-finals, the 2 teams met last time 3 years ago which was also the last time when Barcelona were in the UCL knockout stages.

This time Barcelona will look to settle the score with a somewhat unstable PSG with the departure of Mbappe now confirmed at the end of the season.

PSG will try to capitalize on the large number of injuries that this Barca squad is suffering with injuries.

Not to forget it will also be a homecoming for Dembele & Luis Enrique who have spent their fair share of their career at the Catalan club.

Early predictions  

This matchup is gonna be a chaotic one & will be full of chaos as both the teams have struggled with having a proper build-up throughout the season.

The managers this time both who are Barca legends for their on-field & coaching success with the club Xavi Hernandez & Luis Enrique are gonna be up against each other for the first time

Based on the current form it won’t be wrong to suggest that PSG are the favourites in the tie with the likes of Mbappe, Dembele, Hakimi & many other star players

Although Barca aren’t to be discounted either with the La Masia graduates that have shown for them throughout this season in Lamine Yamal & Pau Cubarsi

With all that being put in context, I’d expect Barcelona to give a tough fight & clinch the tie in the 2nd leg because of the home advantage of the 2nd Leg against PSG.

Sem-Final Draw  

Semi-Final 1: Atletico Madrid or Borussia Dortmund vs Paris Saint Germain or FC Barcelona

Semi-Final 2: Bayern Munich or Arsenal vs Real Madrid or Manchester City
