  • Finished
    RM now face Chelsea in the semis while PSG have Man C in the other semi. Thanks for your company this evening and see you again soon!
  • Finished
    FT: LIverpool 0-0 Real Madrid!!! (agg 1-3)!! All over at Anfield and despite Liverpool's best efforts, Real Madrid defended very well. Klopp's men looked very dangerous in the first 15 minutes, but after that, despite having lots of possession and territory, they struggled to create many clear cut chances. RM just came to protect their lead and they did that with ease.

    HT: Liverpool 0-0 Real Madrid!! (agg 1-3)! Half-time at Anfield and it's been a frustrating half for Liverpool. Courtois had to make a good save to deny Salah and then an even better one from Milner early on, but the match calmed down after that. Benzema hit the post on 20 minutes and even though Liverpool have had some decent chances since then, Courtois has been a spectator since then. The hosts need two in the next 45. Will they get them? Find out shortly!
