Picture : Erling Haaland has now scored 45 goals in all competitions for Manchester City this season, the most ever by a Premier League player since 1992 in a single season.
Statistics on Champions’ League quarter-finals of 11 April
*Inter have achieved (2-0 vs Benfica) their joint-biggest away win in the European Cup/Champions League, from the quarter-finals onwards, along with 2-0 vs Partizan in 1964 and 2-0 vs Real Madrid in 1967 (both times also in quarter-finals).
*To imagine the Inter chances for advance to semi-final: in the whole history of European Cup/Champions League, only one team managed to win a tie, from the quarter-finals onwards, after losing the first leg at home by 2+ goals difference (Ajax made this feat vs Benfica in the quarter-final of 1968-69 season, 1-3, 3-1 and 3-0 in extra-game).
*Inter have scored a penalty goal (Lukaku) away from home for the first time in the entire history of the Champions League.
They had only one away penalty before and missed it (vs Bayer on 19 March 2003, Hans-Jörg Butt stopped from Domenico Morfeo).
*With this, Inter have finished their run of 59 consecutive matches without a penalty away in the Champions League; this is the longest such series in the tournament's history.
*Bayern have equaled (0-3 vs Manchester City) their worst official defeat on English soil. They also lost with same score in the Fairs Cup quarter-final against Liverpool on 10 March 1971.
*Bayern have not suffered such a setback in Europe since 27 September 2017 when they lost 0-3 against PSG in Paris.
