The Uefa Champions league has been narrowed down to just eight teams with some mind-blowing matches being played in the round of 16. Reigning champions Real Madrid were sensationally knocked out by Ajax in what must be considered as one of the biggest upsets.
Manchester United also stunned Paris Saint Germain at the France capital after loosing the first leg at home by a 2-0 scoreline. United overturned the deficit by progressing to the quarter finals by beating PSG 3-1 in a controversial VAR-assisted decision that gave United a last-minute penalty and Marcus Rashford was the hero as he scored past Gianluigi Buffon.
