Four more teams are in Champions League quarter-final action tonight and we have an exclusive interview and features galore to get you in the mood.

Both Liverpool and Manchester City were victorious in their first-leg clashes and now it is the turn of Chelsea, Real Madrid, Villarreal and Bayern Munich to take to the stage.

We also put Everton’s struggling January signing Dele Alli in the spotlight and round up the latest transfer news.

Pires exclusive

Villarreal are enjoying another European adventure after stunning Juventus in the previous round to claim a Champions League quarter-final place.

Qualifying for Europe’s elite competition through winning the Europa League last term, the Yellow Submarine now face six-time winners Bayern in the last eight.

Speaking exclusively to LiveScore, former Villarreal midfielder Robert Pires thinks Unai Emery’s men can go on to win even more trophies under the Spaniard.

Champions League features

Much of Villarreal’s hopes hinge on stopping the formidable stars of Bayern over the two-legged clash, not least winger Leroy Sane.

The former Man City ace had a slow start to life at the Bundesliga giants but they are now seeing the best of him in Bavaria.

Champions League holders Chelsea have their home leg of a difficult tie against Real Madrid tonight in a repeat of last season’s semi-final.

As he did over the two legs last season, N’Golo Kante will surely play a key role but with Real reportedly considering a summer move for the tireless midfielder, he may want to impress the opposition too.

The man the Blues will have firm eyes on stopping at Stamford Bridge is long-serving Real striker Karim Benzema who at 34, seems to be getting better with age.

Burnley vs Everton

There is a massive clash at the bottom of the Premier League as Burnley welcome Everton to Turf Moor.

The Toffees sit just three points above the drop and four ahead of the 19th-placed Clarets. 

Alli’s January move to Everton was meant to reignite his and, in turn, the Toffees’ season but the England international has failed to impress.

Hoping to breathe life into the Clarets’ survival campaign is towering striker Wout Weghorst who, despite some strong showings, is yet to find the net regularly for his new club.

Transfer Talk

Talented midfielder James Maddison has impressed for Leicester of late but recent reports suggest the Foxes are considering cashing in on their man this summer.

Linked with Arsenal in the past, we look at what is next for the 25-year-old.

Today’s transfer round-up brings you the latest on reports Harry Kane is open to listening to any offer from Manchester United this summer before deciding his Tottenham future.
