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

Both Chelsea and Bayern Munich are in need of turnarounds if they are to progress to the semi-finals.

As well as previewing those last-eight clashes, there is plenty more content to get your teeth into on LiveScore.

Champions League quarter-finals

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

Only one side has been two goals down 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 stopping Karim Benzema is a must 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 right now.

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

Bayern, meanwhile, are also on the back foot after suffering a shock 1-0 defeat at Villarreal.

Arnaut Danjuma netted the winner for the Yellow Submarine and we turn our attention to the ex-Bournemouth winger.

Heung-Min Son is enjoying another fine season for Tottenham
Heung-Min Son is enjoying another fine season for Tottenham

Tottenham often struggle without Harry Kane — but accusations of them being a one-man team are wide of the mark.

Heung-Min Son’s hat-trick at Aston Villa on Saturday evening 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 victory over Manchester United at the weekend.

It lifted some of the pressure off Frank Lampard, who may have found the formula needed if the Toffees are to avoid the drop.
