Champions League and Europa League second leg quarter-final clashes are set to resume this week. Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City are among the premier league clubs to have reached this far in the champions league, whereas Manchester United and Arsenal represent the English clubs in the Europa League.
Below is a list of possible clubs that might not advance into the next stage in their respective competition:
After a humiliating defeat against Real Madrid, the Reds require at least a 2–3 goal difference when they meet Madrid at Anfield. With Zidane's men boasting a 3–1 lead goal aggregate, it might prove a difficult task for the English club this season given the Blancos' latest form. Although Klopp had previously pulled a similar kind of comeback against Liga giants Barcelona, Real would come up with a different strategy knowing the danger they are against. Liverpool will be likely to win the match but will be eliminated on goal aggregate.
2. Manchester City
The citizens will be up against Borussia Dortmund, who have an away goal advantage after their first meeting ended 2–1 in favor of City, though there was controversy as VAR denied Dortmund a crucial goal at the Etihad Stadium. With Jadon Sancho set to return for the clash at Signal Iduna Park, the Manchester–based club will surely have limited chances of survival into the next round.
3. Arsenal Football Club
Slavia Prague previously eliminating Leicester City and Rangers, the Gunners will require their last breath to turn things on their side after a 1–1 draw at the Emirates. With both teams having won their weekend's fixtures, Prague will have an upper hand in the match with the home advantage and an away goal.
Both Manchester United and Chelsea are in secure positions having 2–0 goal aggregates each against Granada and Fc Porto respectively. They are the only teams with a smooth pass into the semis unless they bottle it up.
