There could be no Spanish side in quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years

There could be no Spanish side in quarter-finals for the first time in 14 years

The draw for the quarter-final of the Champions League takes place on Friday and at most there will only be one Spanish representative.


That depends on Barcelona, who face Lyon on Wednesday night after a 0-0 draw in the first leg.

Atletico's loss to Juventus in the second leg of their last 16 tie in Turin sees them join city rivals Real Madrid in exiting the competition in the first knockout round.

It comes in the wake of Valencia exiting at the group stage, which makes this the worst Spanish performance in many years.

Assuming Barcelona go through, it'd still be the poorest since 2009/10 when one Spanish side reached the quarter-final stage and they were eliminated in the semi-finals.

To find the last time there was no Spanish representation at the quarter-final stage, you have to go back to 2004/05.
