Episode 22: Exclusive Champions League Recap
this one's for your ears only! Raphael and Christoph take a look back at the two German sides that competed in the Champions League round of 16 this week. Borussia Dortmund sadly couldn't get past FC Chelsea, partly because they were without keeper Kobel and Julian Brandt had to leave the game five minutes in because of injury. In the end that meant that Chelsea outlasted Dortmund and deservedly went through to the quarterfinals. Bayern München also deserved their spot in the round of 8 by holding off PSG who, despite having the superstars on their side, couldn't overcome the injuries to their defenders. It looks like Bayern simply have the deeper squad and it looks like Julian Nagelsmann found the right tactical approach as well as the right eleven men to get the job done.
