Champions League: Real Madrid, Liverpool Advance To Quarter-Finals

Real Madrid and Liverpool FC are through to the quarter finals of the Champions League. Real Madrid swept its round of 16 Champions League series against Paris Saint-Germain Tuesday, winning 2-1 at Parc des Princes stadium in Paris.

Madrid won 5-2 in aggregate scoring and will find out its opponent next week for the quarterfinal round. Both teams played a scoreless first half before Cristiano Ronaldo drew first blood.

Ronaldo’s score gave him nine straight Champions League games with at least one goal, tying a record set by Ruud van Nistelrooy from 2002 to 2003.

Cavani put one back for the home side before Casemiro rounded the scoring for the visitors.

Meanwhile, Liverpool completed their progress to the Champions League quarter finals with an uneventful 0-0 draw at home to FC Porto.

The Reds came into the clash with what was pretty much an unassailable 5-0 lead from the first-leg in Portugal and rarely looked troubled.
