“The Parisian”, France: “So there will be two German clubs in the semi-finals of the Champions League. (…) In the final stages of the game, Arsenal could no longer show their teeth and were pinned down by the Bavarian defense and an impeccable Laimer-Goretzka pairing , which silenced Bukayo Saka, the scorer of the first leg, to the chants of a fiery Allianz Arena, the Germans continued to hold onto the ball and were even able to show some nice moves, helped by a Raphaël Guerreiro in very good form on the left.

“Delivery man”, Austria: “What hasn’t been pouring scorn and ridicule on FC Bayern Munich in the last few months: In the league, the record champions found their champion in Bayer Leverkusen; in the DFB Cup there was an early and embarrassing exit against third division team Saarbrücken, and an extremely expensive one at that Coach misunderstanding Thomas Tuchel. Now a completely messed up season can still have a happy ending.”
