Champions League, quarter finals, first leg

Business as usual in the Champions League, with Real Madrid and Barcelona already looking good for a place in the semi-finals once again. Real Madrid beat Juventus 0-3 in a repeat of last year’s final on Tuesday, Ronaldo scoring two, including a spectacular overhead kick, and Marcelo adding a third later on. And on Wednesday Barcelona won 4-1 against Roma, with De Rossi and Manolas putting through their own net either side of half time, and Piqué making it three early on in the second half. Dzeko got one back for the visitors, but Luis Suárez rounded things off with three minutes to go. Sevilla’s European campaign appears to be over though after they lost 1-2 to Bayern Munich on Tuesday, Sarabia actually giving them the lead on the half hour mark, but a Navas own goal and a header by Thiago turning the scoreline around.
