Champions league quarter-finals

Real Madrid (2) 3 - Galatasaray (3) 0
As expected Real Madrid recorded a comfortable victory against Galatasaray to go through to a semi-final tie with Bayern Munich. Raúl turned in Salgado's cross on the quarter hour mark for the opener and Helguera headed a second from Figo's corner a few minutes later. Raúl scored again to make it 3-0 before half time when McManaman put him through, and Madrid closed ranks in a bad tempered second half to sew up the tie. There is now a real possibility of a repeat of last year's final between Real Madrid and Valencia. (18.04.01)

Deportivo (0) 2- Leeds Utd (3) 0
It was a case of a goal too far for Deportivo. It was always going to be an uphill battle to come back from the three goals scored by Leeds in the first leg, but they gave it their best shot and in the end only just failed to make it. Djalminha gave them the lead from the penalty spot in the ninth minute, and when substitute Diego Tristán added a second twenty minutes from the end there was still hope. But the English side weathered the storm to go through to a semi-final tie with Valencia .

Valencia (1) 1 - Arsenal (2) 0
A late goal by Carew put Valencia through to the semi-finals for the second year in a row. A tenacious Arsenal defence held on to their first leg advantage right up to the last fifteen minutes before the Norwegian striker rose above the defence to head home Angloma's cross. Valencia qualify on the away goals rule, thanks to Ayala's strike in the first leg two weeks ago. (17.04.01)
