Atalanta is the same as RB Leipzig. They even qualify for the European Champions League because of luck. But who would have thought, precisely Atalanta managed to advance to the quarter-finals after getting rid of Valencia.
In the first leg in Italy, Atalanta won a thin 4-3. Had predicted it would lose at Mestalla, this Italian representative actually successfully won with a landslide score of 4-1. They were superior 8-4 aggregate over the Spanish club.
3. Atletico Madrid
Although Atletico Madrid won 1-0 at the first leg meeting at home, Liverpool still have an equal chance to advance to the quarter-finals. Because, they play the second leg at Anfield.
Liverpool only need to win by a two goal margin in the second leg. But it is they who are down embarrassed after being defeated with a final score of 3-2. As a result, the defending champion was knocked out 2-4 on aggregate.
4. Paris Saint-Germain
And the last is Paris Saint-Germain. The success of the French representative advanced to the last eight thanks to a 2-0 victory in the second leg. In the first leg in Germany, the match ended with the score 2-1, the host victory.
