Nico your Champions League run is very similar to the one I had in S2 when I was playing on fm18! I also beat Liverpool (in the group stage) and ended up playing Man City in the quarters.
The first leg went pretty good.
Unfortunately in the 2nd leg it all went a bit wrong and they overturned the 4-1 deficit, winning 4-0 and going through on away goals. Was pretty heartbreaking considering that I would have played Inter in the semis, who I had already beat once in the group stage!
Anyway, onto FM19. Two games in, two easy wins and two clean sheets. Playing with transfers disabled so nothing of note yet, Thuavin injured for a few weeks but Ocompos is stepping up so far.
