Tour surprise: Bodo / Glimt 2 – Roma 1
Of the four quarter-final matches held this year, there has been no real disturbance in two feet.
However, Bodo/Glimt threatened to cause a big upset when he netted a 2-1 win over Roma in the first leg last week.
Of course, Roma would have turned things around in the second leg, achieving a 4-0 overall win, but the previous result was a surprise nonetheless.
Quarter-final match: PSV Eindhoven 1 – Leicester City 2
While Feyenoord and Slavia Prague’s 3-3 draw in the first leg was a contender for the round match, Leicester’s win over PSV Eindhoven was close to winning.
The reason for this is due to the dramatic nature of Leicester’s victory.
The duo tied 0-0 in the first leg at King Power Stadium, with PSV Eindhoven leading by 27 minutes at home in the reverse game.
Then Leicester struggled to break down the Dutch side’s defense and looked ready to be knocked out of the competition. However, James Madison scored 77 goalsyThe equalizer in the minute before Ricardo Pereira scored the winning goal just two minutes before the normal playing time.

Mourinho’s new ghost team?
Jose Mourinho has lost to Bodo/Glimt more times this season (2) than he lost in the Premier League in 2004-05 (1).

Semi-final match to follow: Leicester City and Roma
Both Leicester City and Roma have a strong chance of winning this tournament, so the highest quality match should be in the semi-finals.
It will also be interesting to see how Tammy Abraham deals with an English side for the first time since his move to Roma, and of course, Jose Mourinho is always an entertaining figure to watch.
