The Bavarians overturned a 1-0 first-leg deficit to beat Lazio 3-1 on aggregate in the last-16 of the tournament. 

Harry Kane levelled the scores on aggregate with a 39th-minute header before Thomas Muller added another on the stroke of half-time. 

The England international completed his double in the second-half as Bayern sealed an excellent 3-1 aggregate victory. 

Meanwhile, Dortmund made it to the Champions League quarter-finals for the first time in three years following their 3-1 aggregate win over PSV Eindhoven. 

The tie was finely poised at 1-1 before the second-leg in Germany after Luuk de Jong cancelled out the advantage of Donyell Malen’s goal at the Philips Stadion. 

But Dortmund got an early lead in the Signal Iduna Park encounter on Wednesday as Jadon Sancho scored with a low driving shot. 

Marco Reus came off the bench to add another deep in stoppage time and the German outfit won the tie 3-1. 

Who will make it to the semi-finals? 

Bayern Munich have had an underwhelming 2023-24 campaign as they are 10 points behind Bayer Leverkusen in the league table. 

They now face a tough test against Arsenal who have been impressive this campaign under Mikel Arteta. 

However, Bayern are likely to prevail against the English giants due to their superior head-to-head record. 

The Bavarians have won seven of their last 12 matches against the Gunners. The German outfit have also been victorious in their previous three meetings.  

Meanwhile, Dortmund take on Atletico Madrid who have been very inconsistent this season. 

However, the La Liga side edged Inter Milan on penalties to make it to the Champions League quarter finals. 

The victory should give them a massive confidence boost. And though Dortmund have seen some improvement in recent weeks, we don’t see them beating Atletico Madrid next month.

– Quarter finals: April 9/10 and 16/17
