Galatasaray 1-2 Barcelona (0-0 first leg)
After the disappointing 0-0 in the first leg, the second duel against Galatasaray Istanbul did not start perfectly either. After 28 minutes, the home team took a 1-0 lead thanks to a header from Marcao. Having repaired the corner flag himself, which he demolished during his ecstasy, the favorite is back. Thanks to the goals of Pedri (37) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (50), Barcelona narrowly won the round of 16.
Leverkusen – Atalanta 0:1 (2:3)
Swiss coach Gerardo Siwan’s team missed the turning point against Atalanta. After a quiet first half, Leverkusen turned up the heat without the injured Florian Virts, but the focus was often lacking in front of goal. Shortly before the end, Jeremy Boga made it all clear with 1-0 (90) after a nice solo effort (and unguarded) for Atalanta, which was played by Remo Friuler.
Frankfurt – Betis Seville 1: 1 (2: 1)
The harmony with the Swiss Gabriel Sow (up to 104) in their ranks deservedly reached the quarter-finals. The Germans were again the better team in the second leg at home against Betis Sevilla, but they did not succeed in front of goal for long. On the other hand, Borja Iglesias managed to improve the score in favor of Sevilla in the 90th minute, making the score 1-0 and forcing into extra time. Everything was pointing to the penalty shootout there, until Martin Hinterger scored in the last minute and saved Frankfurt.
West Ham – Seville 2:0 (0:1)
Also in extra time, West Ham rewarded themselves with the quarter-finals thanks to a brave and emotional display. Andriy Yarmolenko scored the decisive goal against European champions Sevilla in the 112th minute. As with his goal against Aston Villa at the weekend that left him in tears, the Ukrainian came on as a substitute and made the decision he celebrated so much of late.
Monaco 1-1 Braga (0-2)
Somewhat surprisingly, Monaco failed in Braga. After losing 2-0 in the first leg, they had some catching up, but the French did not score for the first time in this duel until the last minute of regular time: defender Axel Desasse scored the 1. 1 goal with a header from the corner. The Portuguese had advanced before in the tenth minute and managed to endure this return with the greatest possible relaxation.
Lyon 1-1 Porto (1-0)
Without shining in the second leg, Olympique Lyonnais also reached the quarter-finals. Xherdan handed former Shaqiri in the return match against Porto 1-1. Moussa Dembele put Lyon ahead in the 13th minute before Porto Pepe equalized 14 minutes later.
Red Star Belgrade – Glasgow Rangers 2:1 (0:3)
Glasgow Rangers also booked their ticket to the top eight. The Scots lost the return leg at Red Star Belgrade 1-2, but thanks to the 3-0 scoreline from the first leg it was enough to go up.
The draw for the quarter-finals (7 and 14 April) will take place on Friday. In addition to the teams now eligible, RB Leipzig is also: After excluding all Russian teams And so also from the opponent of Spartak Moscow, the Germans survived this round without playing.
