For the first time in 10 seasons, four teams from one country will compete in the last eight of the Champions League.
Liverpool thumped Bayern Munich 3-1, a significant shift in European football took place.
Sadio Mane’s brace and another from Virgil Van Dijk saw the Reds join Manchester City, Manchester United and Spurs in the Champions League quarter finals – the first time in 10 years that four sides from any individual nation have all qualified for the last eight.
Incidentally, 2008-09 was the last time we saw this anomaly and on that occasion it was Liverpool, Chelsea, United and Arsenal who were flying the Union Jack at Europe’s top table. The following season saw that number dwindle to two.
But does it mean we’re about to see an English team hoist the trophy for the first time in seven years? Also not necessarily.
