Qualified Teams after Wednesday’s Round of 16 Games
Robert Lewandowski from FC Bayern München has celebrated his 1st goal with his fellow teammates during the Bundesliga competition between Bayern Munich and Eintracht Frankfurt, and those who placed soccer bets on this match are going crazy.
Los Rojiblancos managed to seal a 4 – 2 aggregate victory after they drew with Leverkusen 0 – 0 at Vicente Calderon, and Monaco turned a 5 – 3 loss around in their 1st-leg meeting with City and drew the game at 6-all over 2 ties and advance on away-goals.
This pair will be joining Barcelona, FC Bayern München, Juventus and Leicester City, each the representatives of their individual domestic leagues, in the quarterfinals, and Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid are also going forward.
And once again, Spain is the nation most heavily represented, thanks to the fact that 3 clubs are now in the quarter finals. Germany, however, is not very far behind, thanks to the 2 teams representing that country.
Watch Out for Bayern Munich
One of this season’s major frontrunners for the European UEFA Cup Championship crown and presently enjoying the momentum of a 19-game winning streak, Bayern Munich will once again be the team to keep an eye on in the quarter-finals.
This Bavarian squad’s 10 – 2 aggregate demolition of Arsenal in the 16-round highlighted just how able they are to oppose an elite team, and Lewandowski, netting twice across the 2 legs, is a big reason they are doing as well as they are. Fans of the Germans are going to have something great to look forward to as the remaining Bundesliga teams face off against one another.
