Champions League: English Clubs Fail To Win Quarter-Final First-Leg

English Premier League clubs Arsenal FC and Manchester City failed to win their respective UEFA Champions League quater-final first leg games.

On Tuesday, April 9, 2024, Arsenal FC welcomed Bayern Munich to the Emirates Stadium while defending champions Manchester City were visitors at the Santiago Bernabeu vs Real Madrid.

At the Emirates Stadium, Bukayo Saka fired the Gunners in front after twelve minutes but Bayern Munich responded with two quick goals to take the driving seat at halftime.

Serge Gnabry levelled scores for the Bavarians before Harry Kane converted a spot kick after Leroy Sane was illegally stopped in the area.

Substitute Leandro Trossard scored the equalizer to settle a 2-2 draw and leave the match open and perfectly poised ahead of the return leg in Germany.

At the Santiago Bernabeu, a six goal thriller lived up to it’s prematch billing as the last two winners of the competition battled for a place in the semi-final.

Bernardo Silva started the party but City finished the first half behind 2-1. The second half was also entertaining with Valverde drawing Madrid level 3-3, leaving all to play for in the return leg at the Etihad stadium.
