Manchester City and Arsenal saw their UEFA Champions League campaigns come to an end at the quarter-final stage after defeats to Real Madrid and Bayern Munich respectively.

City's Disappointment:

- City, the holders, were beaten 4-3 on penalties by Real Madrid after a 4-4 aggregate draw.

- Kevin De Bruyne's late goal forced extra time, but penalties favored Real, who advanced to face Bayern in the semis.

Arsenal's Exit:

- Arsenal lost 1-0 to Bayern, with Joshua Kimmich's header sealing a 3-2 aggregate win.

- Despite a valiant effort, Arsenal couldn't find a breakthrough, missing out on their first semi-final since 2009.


- No English club will be in the Champions League semi-finals for the first time since 2020, highlighting the strength of European competition.

Next Steps:

- Man City faces Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final, while Arsenal visits Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League.


- The exits of City and Arsenal mark a disappointing turn for English clubs in Europe, but both teams will look to bounce back domestically in their upcoming fixtures.
