English Teams Beat Germans 17-3 On Aggregate In Champions League Last 16
Manchester United, Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool will be part of the draw on Friday morning but for the first time since 2006, there will be NO German teams involved in the latter stages of the UCL.
The last time four English clubs reached the Champions League quarters? 2009.
So, does this mean the Premier League is the best league in world football?
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men beat Paris Saint-Germain in a dramatic tie at the Parc des Princes, Pep Guardiola’s team smashed ten goals past Bundesliga side Schalke, Tottenham knocked four past high flyers Borussia Dortmund and Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool scored three against Bayern on Wednesday night.
If you total the goals scored against German sides in knockout stages, then those from the Premier League are 17-3 up on aggregate.
Juventus are the only Italian club to qualify for the quarters, while Barcelona are the sole Spanish representatives, something that few would have predicted at the start of the 2018/19 Champions League campaign.
