Record 7 Croatian Representatives in Champions League Quarterfinals

Record 7 Croatian Representatives in Champions League Quarterfinals

Eight teams in the Champions League - Leicester City, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Monaco, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

They also face fierce City rivals Real on the Saturday before their first match against Leicester.

Leicester stunned world football to win the Premier League last season and in their first foray in Europe's premier club competition they wrote another chapter in the fairytale by surging into the last eight after seeing off Sevilla.

Bayern München (GER) - Bayern had no problem with Arsenal, thrashing them 5-1 in both legs.

Atletico, which made it to two Champions League finals in the last three seasons and won the Spanish league in 2014, is trying to re-establish itself as the third force in Spanish soccer after a hard start this season.

The draw for the next round takes place on Friday in Nyon.

That team is, of course, Leicester City, who managed to overcome a 2-1 first leg defeat against Sevilla at the King Power on Tuesday night. I was Carlo Ancelotti's second coach and I learnt a lot from him, he is a really good person and we know what he has done here. We're in there on merit. The Champions League is a huge bonus. "But we'll play our own game, try and win it our way", said the Portuguese.

"It would be fantastic to go somewhere like one of those and experience that".


"Against Leicester", Buffon added, "there would also be everything to lose".

"Leicester do what everyone says they can not do", Zidane told reporters. "It's not how we set up, it's the attitude that's the most important thing and the dedication we're going to put into the game".

Bayern will host the first leg against Real as the two sides renew one of European soccer's oldest and most bitter rivalries.

"I think we have the ability to beat Real Madrid". The two legs of Europa League quarter-finals will be held on April 13 and 20.

Leicester, who most big clubs feared to face, will clash with last year's runners-up Atletico Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

"I'm proud to have made it to this stage of the competition", explained Vasilyev.

"I'm glad to be able to play in Madrid again, but I also know the Bernabeu is always a hard place to go, but first we have a home game".
