There were a couple surprises in the opening legs of the Champions League quarterfinals with Liverpool dismantling Manchester City, 3-0, at home, while Real Madrid went to Juventus and came away with a 3-0 victory. In less surprising outcomes, Barcelona beat Roma, 4-1, at home, and Bayern Munich defeated Sevilla, 2-1, on the road.
Most of the focus will be on whether Manchester City can pull off the comeback at home, especially after blowing a 2-0 lead at the Etihad to Manchester United on Saturday night. The match appeared to be a celebration of the Premier League title, at least in the first half, but then Man City conceded three times in the second half to fall, 3-2. Some people are questioning just how good Manchester City are — is now the time to buy low on the Citizens to bounce back?
