RB Leipzig spare no mercy as they completely dominate and batter Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 to proceed to Quarterfinals of the Champions League with an aggregate score of 4-0.
On the other hand, Atalanta score 4(!) goals past Valencia with their star-man Josip Iličić scoring a hat-trick. Despite Valencia's efforts to make a comeback and scoring 3 goals in the process, they could never catch up to Atalanta who go through to the Quarterfinals 8-4 on aggregate.
Thanks for joining us! Auf Wiedersehen!
Bayern Munich's league rivals, RB Leipzig take on London's Tottenham Hotspur in the second leg of the Champions League Round of 16. Since Leipzig and Saxony have not banned large sporting events and other large gatherings, this game will be played in front of a packed house in the Red Bull Arena. After winning the first leg in London, Leipzig will look to defend their 1-0 lead and possibly extend it against an injury-struck Spurs side.
At the same time, Valencia will attempt to make an epic comeback against Atalanta, as they host the Italian team that beat them 4-1 in an empty stadium. At least for this match, you can have an authentic Champions League fan experience from the comfort of your own couch!
