Philip|March. 14, 2019
The German Foreign Office has been left with egg on its face after Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City all booked their place in the Champions League quarter-finals.
The Premier League trio all reached the last eight by beating Bundesliga opposition, with Manchester United also making it through the round of 16 by overcoming Paris Saint-Germain.
It is the first time in a decade there have been four English teams in the European Cup quarter-finals, and, it has to be said, such an outcome was very unexpected.
Manchester City were always backed to make it past Schalke when the round of 16 draw was made, but Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and PSG were expected to triumph against Liverpool, Spurs and Man United respectively.
