CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | AT MADRID ELIMINATES BAYERN LAVERKUSEN

UEFA Champions League matches scheduled tonight with Atletico de Madrid drawing 0 - 0 with German Club Bayern Laverkusen to qualify for the Quarter-Finals. The away 4-2 win was enough to give the Spaniards the ticket.

At Madrid

Overall a "boring" game of Football with chances to both teams & missed. The main player to mention tonight was Atletico de Madrid goalkeeper Jan Olbak. Absolutely superb & kept his team out of danger from a persistent Laverkusen. The Germans tried all night & could have turned things around had Oblak not span his spider-web & keep the ball out of his net. It was a brilliant performance with some amazing saves all the second half.

Fourth year in a row that Atletico de Madrid get into the top 8 best European Teams. Well done!

UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE | SEVILLA FC ELIMINATED BY LEICESTER CITY

UEFA Champions League Football was back tonight with Spanish Football Club Sevilla FC being eliminated by Leicester City. Sevilla FC took with them over to England a 2 -1 aggregate lead & watched how that was overturned 3 - 2 aggregate in favour of the English.

The final score tonight was Leicester City 2 - Sevilla FC 0 with the latter down to 10 men after Nasri fell to a Vardy provoking trap to see a second yellow & a red card (73rd min). Pretty stupid, & undisciplined by Nasri for falling to the oldest trick in the book. Left his team in disadvantage just when Sevilla FC was close to scoring a goal away to force extra-time


Sevilla FC Leicester City

But there is more. Sevilla player Escudero hit the bar while Nzonzi missed a penalty in the latter part of the second half (78th min). To add salt to the Sevilla wound Coach Sampoali was sent off as well. Overall a disastrous night for the Spaniards which ends their European Championship League run.

Leicester City played to their strengthens, quick counter-attacks with excellent finishing. Add some physical power & determination & there you have it. The goal scores were Wes Morgan in the 27th min & Albrighton in the 54th min

Deserved win by Leicester City as they earned themselves the Q/finals qualification, helped on by the auto-destruct attitude of Sevilla FC.
