The Quarter Finals

The quarter final stages of UEFA Champions League saw Real Madrid beating Juventus FC 4-3 on aggregate after high paced drama as Cristiano Ronaldo stepped up to score the penalty on the last minute after a controversial penalty call by the referee

. On the other hand Roma gave an upset defeat to Barcelona FC 4-4 on aggregate,beating them on away goals.

The two English sides Liverpool FC and Manchester City met in the quarters as MO Salah's genius guided them through to the semis.

The German giants Bayern Munich met the Spanish side Sevilla FC in the Quarters and beat them away 2-1 on aggregate.

These Matches made Bayern Munich,Real Madrid,Liverpool FC and AS Roma as the semi-finalists of the UCL 2018.

Bayern Munich Vs Real Madrid

A very Tough fight is expected between the two well-balanced sides Real Madrid and Bayern Munich. Real Madrid has everything at stake for the champion's league title as they have already been kicked out of copa del rey and aren't expected to win the la liga too because of a huge point difference between the leaders FC Barcelona and them.They are expected to give everything for the title. The side has big names such as Cristiano Ronaldo,Tony Kroos (a former Bayern Munich player), Gareth bale and Sergio Ramos on the side.Real Madrid is also defending their title. If they win the UCL this year too,they will end up winning it three times in a row.

Bayern on the other hand has Robert Lewandownski, Manuel Neuer and James Rodriguez and Arjen Robben on their sides. Bayern has a strong defense too. Bayern is 20 points clear than the runner ups in the Bundesliga too, due to spanish dominance in the UCL, Bayern has not won the title in a few years, winning it last time in 2012-2013 season.

Even though Bayern has won 11 matches against Real Madrid out of the 22 encounters, Real Madrikd winning 9 and 2 ending in a draw, Real Madrid were successful last time out as they beat them in 2013-2014 UCL Semi's with Madrid going forward to win the tiltle that year.

As both of the sides have a well-balanced side and their goal scorers Ronaldo and Lewandownski are in form too, a high goal scoring game is expected between the two but Real Madrid remain the favourites due to their high-flying form in the recent matches as Ronaldo returned to goal scoring form.

My prediction is 4-3 in favour of Real Madrid.

AS Roma vs Liverpool FC

AS Roma and Liverpool FC will face each other in the semi's of UEFA Champions League 2018.

At the start of 2017-2018 season, both of the teams were not considered to be the top teams for winning the title but as the season progressed, both of the underdogs performed well and have reached this stage due to their determination and perseverance. We will see one of them reach the final and who knows winning the title.

AS Roma has Eden Dzeko, Kostas Manolas and the experienced and loyal captain Daniel De Rossi on the side.

While on the other hand Liverpool FC has the sensational Mohamed Salah,Alex Oxlade-chamberlain and Adam Lallana to boost the side.

Both sides have met five times in the Europe, but Liverpool have been slightly better with two wins and two draws.

Liverpool has returned to the UEFA Champions League semi final stage for the first time since 2007-2008 season, but they are five times champions of the league.

Roma on the other hand has never ever won any UEFA organised tournament but has played two finals.

My prediction is MO Salah's brace as Liverpool FC will beat AS Roma 4-2 on Aggregate.
