Real Madrid advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 victory over Atalanta this evening, securing the tie 4-1 on aggregate. Karim Benzema put Los Blancos ahead following a mistake by Marco Sportiello. Vinicius Junior was brought down in the box by Rafael Toloi, allowing Sergio Ramos to score from the penalty spot. Luis Muriel struck a fine effort from a free-kick to make matters interesting late on, but Marco Asensio put the tie beyond doubt with a crisp finish from close range. As a result of their win, Madrid return to the last eight of the competition after a two-year absence.

Manchester city cruise through to the quarter-finals with a 4-0 aggregate win over Borussia monchengladbach after beating them 2-0 in the second leg. They controlled the game but secured the win in the first half, with De Bruyne opening the scoring with a great strike into the top corner from the edge of the box that gave Sommer no chance. Gundogan then doubled the lead six minutes later, hitting his low shot under the goalkeeper and into the far bottom corner.
