BT Sport presenter Gary Lineker said: “Let’s have a look at the poll from last night’s games and who people think will go through. "As you’d expect, Real Madrid are in great shape: 74%, that’s three out of four people and almost two thirds going for Man City.” Responding to his colleague, Ferdinand said: “I make that about right, I agree, totally. Game over for Liverpool.” If Ferdinand is correct and Chelsea do indeed finish the job next week, then it will mean the Blues take on the 13-time Champions League winners Real Madrid in the last four of the competition.

Zinedine Zidane's side looked very impressive on Tuesday as they completely outplayed the Reds at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano. Vinicius Jr. scored twice for Madrid with Marco Asensio netting as well against a Liverpool side, who were poor on the night. The experienced midfield trio of Casemiro, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos caused Jurgen Klopp's team all sorts of problems in the first-leg and their knowhow will be key in the return game to see the six-time champions off.
