England cheering at the end of the two first leg matches of the quarter-finals of the 2022 Champions League football . In the matches scheduled between Benfica and Liverpool and between Manchester City and Atletico Madrid it was the two teams of the Premier League who made the big voice.
At the Estádio do SL Benfica , the hosts were defeated by the Reds , scoring with Konatè on 17 ‘, the usual devastating Manè on 34′ and Luis Diaz on 87 ‘. The realization of Núñez in the 49th minute was of little use, given that the formation of Jürgen Klopp with authority has imposed itself and has seriously mortgaged the passage of the round.
Success then for Pep Guardiola’s Citizens . In the clash of football philosophies between the Spanish coach and Di ego El Cholo Simeone , Manchester’s attacking game prevailed. A play by the Belgian De Bruyne allowed the hosts to prevail. However, given the return to Spain, the qualification discussion is still very open.
