The Wonders of 2019/2020 Season's UEFA Champions League

The 2019/2020 Season of the UEFA Champions League came with some wonders as some middle-class teams cruised into the Quarter Finals of this season competition.

In the Round of 16 Fixtures RB Leipzig defeated Tottenham Hotspur with 4-0 scoreline on aggregate following a 1-0 first leg victory in England and a 3-0 return leg victory in Germany. No one would have given them the chance to get to the quarter finals.
On the other hand, Atalanta defeated Valencia with 8-4 on aggregate to feature in the quarter finals of the competition. The Italian Club defeated Valencia by 4-1 in Italy and later handed the Spanish Giants another 4-3 defeat in Spain in the return leg.

Both Tottenham Hotspur and Valencia are regulars in the UEFA Champions League and have been eliminated by the duo of RB Leipzig and Atalanta respectively who are not regulars in the Competition.
The worst may happen tomorrow when defending Champions Liverpool who have been struggling recently takes on Atletico Madrid in a round of 16 return leg fixture at Anfield, a game that may go in favour of the visitors who are currently leading by 1-0 on aggregate.
