April 6
Man City v Borussia Dortmund
Real Madrid v Liverpool

April 7
Bayern Munich v Paris Saint-Germain
Porto v Chelsea

Main reason for posting this early is that Bayern have just announced that Lewandowski will be out for four weeks. Which will not only see him miss both ties against PSG but seriously puts his shot at breaking Gerd Müller's almost eternal record of 40 league goals in one season at risk (Lewandowski is on 35 at the moment).

There's been a huge reaction to the news in the betting markets and Bayern are now close to evens to win the first leg, up from sub 1.70 a couple of days ago. Which shows you what a massive loss he is.

Anyway, really looking forward to all four ties this year. Really good match-ups.

Initial reports were that he would miss 10 days... Shame that was revised upwards.

Well, that's a bit shite that Lewandowski will miss both ties. Gives the edge to PSG for me. Which is a shame, because I hate them.

Spanish government has relaxed the rules as it has been confirmed that restrictions on incoming flights from the United Kingdom will ease on March 30, just in time for the match on April 6.

Our win against Leipzig today and PSG's loss against Lille make me feel better about our Lewandowski-less chances of winning this tie.

More likely out for the entire QF than not. There's no realistic hope of him making the second leg, really.

No Ramos and now no Varane either. Dippers' luck is unbelievable at times.
Varane too. Wow.

Dumb question, but if Varane tested positive < 7 days after playing with Pogba, surely there's something to that?

I feel a bad night coming on :nervous:
Yup.

I just want to see Liverpool go out. I know City are still in it but at least everything they do seems a bit shallow. Need Liverpool out of this competition. Sadly, I think they have a great chance of making the final and hence winning it. They've just about turned a corner and their run to the final is nothing special.

I think both arch enemies will win comfortably tonight with Haaland not getting even a sniff against City (which is the only reason I'm even watching to see him hopefully do something against them)

Seeing a backline with Lucas Vazquez, Militao and Nacho in CL quarters will be quite an experience :houllier:

That's some decent experience, no? Compare to us:

TAA - one of the worst, if not the worst (ask Gary), defensive RB England have ever produced.

Nat Phillips - who? Exactly.

Kabak - played really poorly for a year in a really poor team. Lack of experience.

I have a feeling Liverpool are going to finish the season strongly, they'll beat Madrid comfortably and probably pip us to the top 4 as they have a good run in.

Hopefully if we can do the business against Porto which is by no means guaranteed we can try and get one over them in the semis.

Elsewhere i reckon City and PSG will progress, i think this is the blue half of Manchester's year in the CL

Is this the same Liverpool who have been without Van Dijk and Gomes for almost the whole season? Lucky.
Yes. Could you imagine if both VVD and Gomes played all season and were ruled out for these matches due to injury?
People would be all over RM easily beating us even without Ramos.
luck indeed

Oh, I never noticed it was that bad. We are going to demolish you.

So there’s going to be quite a celebration on here once City have destroyed the evil Dortmund.

The „pussy“ is positive for COVID.
My first thought was that the sore throat was a euphemism for a positive Corona test. So that's him out for two weeks at least, unless it turns out a false positive against all likelihood? Great, great.

Positive test - out for atleast 10 days
Contact person 1 - out for atleast 14 days in Germany (as there could be an incubation period, too)

He could already be out of quarantine for the match against Wolfsburg at Saturday next week - but he is no Kimmich or Müller - so it probably will be earliest for the match against Leverkusen the following midweek. As Lewy is already out that is a very miserable timing.
