>> The last eight teams have secure their places in the champions league quarterfinals. Leicester City, surprisingly the only English team left in the competition after Man City were knocked out on Wednesday night by Monaco. That tie decided on away goals, after it ended 6-6 on aggregate. It was the first time Pep Guardiola have ever been knocked out as early as the last 16.

With teams from Spain, Germany, Italy, France, and England still battling for the trophy, it's hard to pick a winner. Reuters Sport editor Ian Axon.>> Well, it's how you pick really. It's hard to look beyond the three Spanish teams, Athletico Madrid, Barcelona, and Real Madrid. They've got great pedigree in the competition, Real Madrid and Barcelona, obviously footballing superpowers as well.

I think we'll know more tomorrow when the draw takes place in Switzerland. Could all depend on who gets who in the quarter finals, but it really is a stellar line up. You've got Bayern Munich in there as well, Juventus. Really, really hard to pick a winner.>> Leicester City turned over a 2-1 defeat in the first leg, last month in Spain, to win two, nil in a superb victory over Sevilla.

Now they're guaranteed a tie against one of the biggest names in football.>> It's a big shock to see Arsenal, Man City go out. Not hugely I don't think given the form they've shown in the last couple of seasons. But for Leicester to still be there, it's amazing.

Who knows? You would have thought the quarter finals might be the end of the road for them, given the teams that are still left in. I think realistically Leicester, even though they're English champions, are the weakest team left in the last eight. But, it was a fairy tale last season, everyone said they couldn't carry it on.
00:01:38
And they're still doing the business, so who knows?>> The first games of the quarter finals will be on the 11th and 12th of April, with the return legs a week later.
