    The Champions League has reached the quarter-final stage as the competition’s remaining eight teams battle it out.

    The action begins on Wednesday night with Atalanta taking on Paris Saint-Germain.

    Atalanta have become this season’s surprise package, with the Italian side knocking out Valencia to set up the clash with PSG.

    RB Leipzig take on Atletico Madrid the following day before Friday’s heavyweight showdown between Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

    Manchester City, the only Premier League side left in the competition, will face Lyon.

    City are also many bookmakers’ favourites to win the competition this year after dispatching Real Madrid in the last 16.

    “We were extra hungry (against Real),” said midfielder Raheem Sterling.

    “I think the mentality since we got back in – day one after lockdown – has been how much we want this. We’ve got energy to progress in this competition. Energy and fight – we showed that against Madrid throughout the game.

    “There are teams in his competition with great quality. We have to keep up the energy and play our football. We want to go out there and play our football.

    “The most important thing is to run and give 100 per cent for every minute we are in the competition.

    “It’s a new format and it’s one we are ready for. All we can do now is go over there and run our socks off. That will make the difference and decide whether we progress or not.”

    All quarter-final ties are being played as one-off matches in Lisbon, Portugal.
