Barca, Bayern grab last Champions League quarter-final slots

Lionel Messi had a good game on Saturday as Barcelona and Bayern Munich grabbed the remaining two quarter-final tickets left in this season’s UEFA Champions League.

While Barcelona thumped Napoli 3-1 at Camp Nou, Bayern Munich completed a double over Chelsea, beating the Blues 4-1 at the Allianz Arena.

Unlike the Chelsea game which already looked like a lost battle, the Barca, Napoli contest was still evenly-poised having ended in a pulsating 1-1 draw in the first leg played in Naples.

It only meant Genaro Gattuso’s men had to score in Spain to stand any chance and Victor Osimhen’s new teammates actually started quite well.

With the qualification of Barcelona and Bayern Munich, the quarter-final pairings are now crystal clear.
