Full-time at Stade Louis II. Monaco are THROUGH to the quarter-final of the Champions League thanks to a 3-1 win over Manchester City on the night, and a 6-6 away goals win on aggregate. The vital goal came from Bakayoko 13 minutes from time as he sent a bullet header home to send Pep Guardiola's men out. Thanks for joining us, see you next time.

Following Arsenal's humiliating exit at the hands of Bayern Munich, England will be represented by just one team: Leicester City.

The Foxes, who have been rejuvenated under new manager Craig Shakespeare, defeated Sevilla on Tuesday night in a thrilling second leg.

Manchester City seemingly had the best chance of making the quarter-finals after winning their first leg against Monaco with a thrilling 5-3 win at the Etihad, but were defeated on away goals after a 3-1 defeat in Monaco.

Real Madrid is seeking to defend the title, a feat no club has achieved since the reformation of the League in 1992. The Spanish giants also record the highest number of Champion League trophies (11) to be won by any European Team since the inception of the tournament.

people like you said the same last year that they cannot win the league even with 5 games to go.

Here we are.

Champions league, all the big english team are out, leceister still doing it. Even against sevilla, number 3 in spanish league. Don't forget they also topped their table.

When they win it again, I wonder what you are going to say next.

For me, I want them to play borusia in quater and barcelona in semis. I'm sure they can stun barca.

Not true, I totally supported them all through last year in the EPL.

However, don't even think the UCL is anything close to the EPL. We all saw how a 'whole' Arsenal was reduced to nothing, and how a Pep Guardiola Manchester City was seen out by Monaco.

Experience too would have counted for Leicester City, but unfortunately, they are not regulars in the tournament. Except the draw matches the big guns against one another would Leicester City have a chance. But here is the truth, I don't even see them going past Monaco or Atletico.

experience don't always win games.

If football has taught anything, anybody can beat anybody.

Leicester came from regulation and won premier league, same stunt rb leipzig almost pulled in german bundles liga.
They topped the ucl table without experience and they defeated sevilla with shitload of experience in europe.

Anything can happen In football. Leceister can really suprise the world. They have what it takes.

Forget million pounds players. They are just humans like leceister players.

At the emboldened, I totally disagree if that is in reference to the Champions League.

The atmosphere in a champions League match is overwhelming. The stadium might be the same the players have been used to but the tournament and the mindset accompanying it can be consuming.

Seeing how Monaco overwhelmed Manchester City is a typical example of the Champions League experience.

Comparing a league match to the UCL is like comparing slumber to death. Most times, the bigger teams end up winning as opposed to the league were anyone takes the day. Ask yourself when was the last time a smaller team won the Champions League.

Even as crazy as Atletico is, the best they can do is get to the finals. And as much as they beat Barcelona and Real Madrid in the League, they are an entirely different team when playing Real in particular.

Yes, they went ahead of Sevilla because Sevilla in itself is a that is more exposed to the Europa League. These teams know where their strength lie. A Real or Barcelona side would struggle in the Europa, particularly against those unknown names because the mentality is not all too familiar to them.

The Champions League is not really a shocking league. It is no brainer that some set of teams have been winning it for over a decade.

There are super humans in the game and we have just two around presently. Google players and managers' comments about Messi and Ronaldo.

By the way, did you figure out why Arsenal was massacred by Bayern? Because there are more million pounds players in one of the teams than the other.

experience doesn't always win games but that doesn't mean experience is not needed.

There are instances where experience is need, like champions league final between real and athletico.

The same aresnal have been to champions league final with the same coach yet got demolished by bayern muchen.

By the way, monaco has almost the same level of experience as mancity, even man city had a edge because they got to semis last years.
But football don't always work like that.

Like I said, sevilla had so many experience in europe, yet got knocked out by a first timer and number 15 on epl league table. That should tell you something.

I'm sure if they pair leceister with athletico with all the experience, they have 50% chance of progressing. That's why I said experience don't always determine football but team performance.

Even madrid defeated athletico because they had better team not experience.

Not true! Lack of exposure and experience to and in the league has been the primary reason why the big guns has been winning the tourney since its reformation in 1992. As a matter of fact, ONLY three (3) average teams have only managed to lift the trophy since 1992 (25 solid years!). You think this is by accident?

The same arsenal have been to champions league final with the same coach yet got demolished by bayern muchen.
Arsenal was once a force in Europe, especially during their golden years when they had the likes Henry, Pires, Campbell, Vieira, Bergkamp and Ljunberg. The 15 year-old players they sign for 2,000 pounds these days would only come back for many years to come. Arsenal has only played a final since the UCL inception and that was against Barcelona in 2006 (I still remember like it was yesterday).

By the way, monaco has almost the same level of experience as mancity, even man city had a edge because they got to semis last years. But football don't always work like that.
Monaco is much more experienced than Manchester City! City only came into the European scene recently. Monaco has been there before now. We are talking a club that the likes of Thierry Henry, Lilian Thuram, Fabien Barthez, Marco Simone, George Weah, Ludovic Giuly and David Trezeguet. When did City start?

Like I said, Sevilla had so many experience in Europe, yet got knocked out by a first timer and number 15 on epl league table. That should tell you something.
Sevilla has never played a Champions League final let alone win before. Interestingly, Sevilla has won five (5) Europa League trophies, and is the current club with the most Europa trophy. I guess that tells us a lot about them, yeah? They even tried this year. Normally, they would crash out early and then go on to the Europa League to claim it.

I'm sure if they pair leceister with athletico with all the experience, they have 50% chance of progressing. That's why I said experience don't always determine football but team performance.
This is so funny! grin

Atletico is one club every manager and club pray to avoid like a plague, owing to their disciplined, physical, defensive style of play. Ask Barcelona, Madrid, Chelsea and Bayern. Leicester City have been impressive so far but trust me, Atletico would frustrate them out. They are a three-time finalist (losing twice to Real and once to Bayern).

Even madrid defeated athletico because they had better team not experience.
See, I am a Madridsta and I would tell you the Gospel truth, we won those two finals against them because Atletico does not recognize a final from a regular match. The same does not apply to Real Madrid. Madrid might be sloppy all through the tournament, but trust me, they play like they are on drugs in a Champions League final. Earlier you mentioned that all players are the same, now, you're saying Madrid had a better team. Funny! How did they get the 'better players' to make a team? Is it not by spending excessively on experienced players? City spends too, but have you ever asked why they struggled against Monaco when the likes of Yaya Toure was sidelined?

Experience is Champions League and Champions League is experience. You cannot win the UCL with a total of players valued at 100 million pounds. Ask Arsenal grin

you said experience is all it takes, then I gave you example of sevilla which clearly have greater experience in the knock out stages of ucl than leceister and huge european record, why didn't they use this experience to beat leceister?

I also talked about topping the group, do you know the teams that were in leceister group? Fc porto, (2 times champions league winner and constant participant)
Clubb brugge, always regular in champions league, yet Leicester with zero experience did not only defeated these guys, but won the table and you still think experience is everything huh?



Let's see the record between real madrid and athletico, both in form and out of form? Who has more wins and loses? Even its clear to the blind that real madrid had a better team and more desciplined than athletico, that's why they won not any experience.

Its like saying northinham forest ( two times champions league winner) will use their experience and their current shitty team to beat arsenal in champions league final (while this is possible) but we all knew the odds will be against them, just like the odds are against athletico because real madrid are the better side.


As for arsenal, exactly the same point I was making with athletico and real madrid.
Arsenal used to be a force to reckon with the likes of henry etc but suddenly, things change when good players left the club and team is in awful state. Even with all the experiences in the world, a team like that willl never beat the likes of bayern or barca or madrid when it mattered most.

I agreed though, leceister doesn't have all it takes to win ucl in terms of expensive world class players, but they have one thing though, the ability to stun any team no matter how big,(thanks to their doggedness) they just might use it to win the champions league like they did with premier league.
So its not right to write them off.
