Atletico Madrid eliminate Inter and advance to the quarter-finals of the Champions League after winning 5-3 on penalties in the second leg of the round of 16. The 90 minutes at the Wanda Metropolitano were very, very long. Simone Inzaghi's men tried to maintain their 1-0 lead from the first leg at San Siro but their opponent had already assured that it would not be easy. Goals from Griezmann and Depay sent the match into extra time, before decisive penalty errors from Sanchez, Klaassen and Lautaro allowed the Colchoneros to progress to the quarter-finals. From now on, all Italian teams are eliminated from the Champions League, already in the round of 16. Italy's hope of a fifth place overall still remains open. Spain is recovering points, but it is far behind and there are still other Italian teams capable of qualifying for the Europa League. The results after penalties are not taken into account in the ranking, but Inter also lost in overtime.
