Liverpool silenced their many critics at the Allianz Arena last night as they thumped a toothless Bayern Munich outfit to the tune of 3-1 in the Champions League, Sadio Mane banging-in a brace along the way and helping Jurgen Klopp’s side move into the last eight of the competition. This followed on from a comprehensive Manchester City victory the previous evening where Pep Guardiola’s men thrashed Schalke 7-0 to secure for themselves a 10-2 aggregate victory.
Last week’s Champions League action saw Manchester United oust Paris Saint Germain while Tottenham Hotspur eased themselves into the last-eight at the expense of Borussia Dortmund.

Thus far, England’s involvement in the competition this season has been excellent with Premier League clubs making-up exactly half of the last eight. Indeed German champions Bayern Munich, French champions PSG and high-flying Borrusia Dortmund have all been eliminated by English teams, although with the likes of Juventus and Barcelona still in the mix, the four Premier League sides will each be hoping to avoid these two and instead be drawn against underdogs Ajax or Porto.
The bookmakers are going just 6/5 that we will be witness to an all-England final with Manchester City still firm favourites to win the competition outright at odds of 5/2 with Paddy Power. Barcelona are a 7/2 shot for European glory while Juventus and Liverpool are 7/2 and 9/2 respectively.
