Real Madrid win 1-0 against Liverpool in the second leg of the round of 16, taking the tie 6-2 on aggregate.
Why it matters
Liverpool's hopes of winning the Champions League are ended for a third consecutive season by Real Madrid. Liverpool will now focus on finishing in the Premier League's top four and leading Liverpool back to the Champions League next season. Real Madrid, on the other hand, remain in the competition and are looking to retain their European crown.

How we got here
Liverpool travelled to the Bernabéu with a three-goal deficit to overcome, but failed to score as Real Madrid won 1-0. Liverpool's form this season has been inconsistent, making this match a difficult one to predict. Real Madrid have ended Liverpool's chances of winning the Champions League for the third successive season. Liverpool's last hope in the competition was to fashion a performance to rival that of Istanbul 2005 or Anfield 2019 against Barcelona, but they failed to do so.
