Last English clubs bow out of Champions League

For the first time since the 2019-20 season, there will be no English teams in the Champions League semi-final as Arsenal and Manchester City lose their quarter finals with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid respectively.

The Gunners saw a Joshua Kimmich strike send the German side, who recently signed Harry Kane and Eric Dier from Arsenal’s arch rivals Tottenham, through to the final four, while Los Blancos beat the returning champions after a dramatic penalty shootout to send the Spanish side into the semi-final.

The other quarter finals saw Paris Saint Germain come back in the second leg to defeat Barcelona 6-4 on aggregate after the Catalans won in Paris, while Borussia Dortmund would go on to beat Atlético Madrid 5-4.

The last time that no club from England was in the semi final was in the 2019-20 season after Manchester City lost 3-1 to Lyon, despite an opening goal by Kevin DeBruyne in the second half.

Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint Germain will now compete to be crowned European champions. Munich have lost the Bundesliga to a surprising Bayer Leverkusen side but will still have a chance for some silverware as Harry Kane hopes to finally break his trophy drought, while PSG will be losing its star player Kylian Mbappé to Madrid in the summer.
