UEFA Champions League Team Of The Week – Chelsea, PSG, Man City Dominate List



The Champions League quarter-finals got underway in the week, and a few mouth-watering ties lived up to their expectations as 14 goals flew in across the four first legs.

A repeat of last season’s final saw chances galore as Bayern Munich’s Champions League-winning run was finally ended by Paris Saint-Germain, who will take a 3-2 lead back to the French capital.

Chelsea even has one foot within the semi-finals courtesy of their 2-0 win away against Porto, but on Tuesday night it had been the house sides who came out on top.

Real Madrid overcame Liverpool 3-1 in a repeat of the 2018 final, but there was better news for the other English team in action as Manchester City edged to a 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund.

Only one goalkeeper kept a clean sheet over the four games, but Edouard Mendy was made to figure for it within the Chelsea goal as he made five saves to keep Porto cornered – enough for him to edge Keylor Navas to the gloves during this week’s team.

One PSG defender does cut conceding two goals and countless chances against Bayern, with Marquinhos making an enormous impact at the opposite end together with his side’s second goal. The centre-back was only on the pitch for half an hour before being forced off, but his absence was felt as Bayern clawed their way back into the tie after his withdrawal.
