Kodwa-ke, iqembu elilodwa lizongena kowamanqamu ekupheleni kwesizini liyizimbangi ezinkulu njengoba amaqembu “amakhudlwana” elwa.

I-Benfica izobhekana ne-Inter Milan kodwa iqembu le-Portugal liyizintandokazi zokudlulela kowamanqamu okokuqala ngqa kusukela ngo-1990.

Umdlalo wokuqala uzobe usenkundleni yezemidlalo i-Estadio da Luz e-Portugal ngaphambi kokuthi amaqembu alibhekise e-Italy emasontweni amabili.

Ukudlala ngokulingana emidlalweni yama-quarter-final kube kuhle emaqenjini amancane kulo mqhudelwano njengoba amaqembu ayingozi ebebhekene wodwa.

Ngakolunye uhlangothi umdlalo wokuqala phakathi kwamaqembu amakhulu kuzoba ngowe-Manchester City lapho ezokwamukela khona i-Bayern Munich namhlanje ebusuku, kanti wombili la maqembu alangazelela ukuphakamisa indebe ngoNhlangulana.

UPep Guardiola kanye ne-Manchester City basafuna ukuwina isicoco sabo sokuqala se-Champions League kanti umqeqeshi osanda kuqokwa uThomas Tuchel ufuna ukuwaqeda wonke lawo mathemba.

Eminyakeni emibili eyedlule uTuchel wathatha izintambo eqenjini futhi wahola leli qembu ekutheni libe sefomini enhle emqhudelwaneni wamaqembu ohlonishwa kakhulu eYurophu.

Ngokumangalisayo indoda ayethathe kuyo izintambo kusukela ngaleso sikhathi uFrank Lampard ubuyele esihlalweni sokuphatha kwi-Chelsea, futhi ubhekene nempi efanayo njengoba ezama ukubhekana nobunzima bokukhulula i-Real Madrid. Umlenze wokuqala wokulingana kwabo uzoba ngoLwesithathu.

Umdlalo wamaNtaliyane uzodlalwa ngobusuku obufanayo lapho i-AC Milan izobhekana khona ne-Napoli ukulwela ukuthola indawo kowandulela owamanqamu.

I-Napoli esefomini enhle ihlezi kahle phezulu etafuleni kwi-Serie A ngamaphuzu angu-16 ngaphambi kwe-Lazio esendaweni yesibili.

I-AC Milan isendaweni yesine etafuleni futhi ibukeka ikude kakhulu ukuthi ingaqhudelana nabazoba ngompetha baseNtaliyane maduze.

Noma ngabe kwenzekani, kuqinisekisiwe ukuthi iqembu elingalindelekile lizokwazi ukungena kowamanqamu ezinyangeni ezimbalwa – linethuba langempela lokuqopha umlando.
