It was a pulsating second leg quarter Finals matches in Europe on Wednesday night as Liverpool booked their spot in the final four,securing a clash with Villarreal with a 3-3 draw against Benfica (6-4 agg).

Ibrahima Konate and a Roberto Firmino double did the damage for Jurgen Klopp’s side as they subdued a brief threat of a Benfica comeback when Goncalo Ramos netted in the first half.

It was very daisy for Jorgen Klopp who decided to rest Virgil van Dijk, Sadio Mane, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andrew Robertson and Mohamed Salah from the start in a rotated team from the 2-2 draw with Manchester City on Sunday.

Manchester City’s tough goalless draw away to Atletico Madrid was enough to secure a hard-fought 1-0 aggregate victory in their Champions League quarter-final.

Leading 1-0 from the first leg thanks to Kevin De Bruyne’s goal,City retained their advantage in front of a filled Wanda Metropolitano crowd to progress to the last four.

There were nervy moments late on as Atletico pushed hard for the goal despite Felipe’s red card in stoppage time for a second bookable offence.
Manchester City will play Real Madrid while Liverpool will square up against Villarreal in the semi-final.
