Football Today, April 12, 2022: Chelsea and Bayern Munich set to overturn Champions League first leg deficits

Champions League second legs often produce some of the most dramatic moments in the competition and there are two on the menu tonight.

Chelsea and Bayern Munich both need turnovers if they are to qualify for the semi-finals.

Along with previewing these final eight clashes, there’s plenty more content to check out on LiveScore.

Champions League quarter-finals

After last week’s entertaining first leg, Chelsea head to the Bernabeu with a mountain to climb following their 3-1 loss to Real Madrid at Stamford Bridge.

Only one side have lost two goals after the home leg of a Champions League knockout tie and successfully overturned it – Manchester United’s memorable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in 2019 – and stop Karim Benzema is essential if the Blues want to become the second.

LiveScore spoke exclusively to Robert Pires and he believes only Robert Lewandowski is on the same level as the French striker at the moment.

We also analyze how West Londoners can go about keeping Los Blancos No9 quiet.

Heung-Min Son is having another great season for Tottenham

Tottenham often struggle without Harry Kane – but accusations that it’s a one-man team are far from the truth.

Heung-Min Son’s hat-trick at Aston Villa on Saturday night took his tally to 18 goals for the season and he will be crucial in their quest to qualify for the Champions League.

At the other end of the table, Everton picked up a vital 1-0 win over Manchester United at the weekend.

That took some of the pressure off Frank Lampard, who may have found the formula needed for the Toffees to avoid the drop.
