Recap

Monaco seemed to be on their way to the quarter-finals when Safwan Mbae doubled their lead during Wednesday's match against Real, but a thrilling second half saw Los Blancos produce one of the finest comebacks the tournament has ever seen.

Irvin Cardona had given Monaco the lead, and the French side went into half-time up 2-0, fully deserving of the advantage.

But the visitors exploded after the break, led by Mink Peeters, who scored twice. Sergio Diaz and Dani Gomez turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead in the span of four minutes, and Mink's second goal seemed to finish the tie.

Monaco still weren't finished, however, as Adrien Bongiovanni added a late goal to set up a thrilling finale. Time ran out for the hosts, and Real's official Twitter account was ecstatic that the youngsters held on for the win:

Per the club's official Twitter account, the fans showed up in solid numbers for this youth match:

Over in Russia, top prospect Timur Zhamaletdinov opened the score for CSKA, but Fredrik Vinje tied things up from the penalty spot. The hosts were given a spot-kick of their own one minute before the end of regulation time, and Timur Pukhov kept his composure, firing his team into the quarter-finals.

In those quarter-finals, Real Madrid will face tournament favourites Ajax, while Barcelona take on FC Porto. CSKA play Benfica, and Atletico Madrid visit Salzburg.
