Manchester City in UEFA Champions League

Manchester City in UEFA Champions League

Manchester United will face Barcelona in the Uefa Champions League quarter-finals, while Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will play out an all-English tie.

United and Liverpool will meet in the semi-finals if they reach the last four, with Tottenham or Manchester City facing the victor of the quarter-final between Ajax and Juventus.

That result ended Atletico's dreams of reaching the final, which will be played at their Wanda Metropolitano stadium on Saturday, June 1. Ajax last won the Champions League in 1995, while Manchester United last won in 2008 and Juventus most recently won in 1996. Ronaldo has been the key signing for Massimiliano Allegri's team, injecting belief in Turin that they can go all the way this time.

Liverpool will host two-time European Cup winners Porto at Anfield in the first leg before heading to the Estadio do Dragao in the return on April 16 or 17. The victor of Tottenham and City takes on the victor of Juventus and Ajax.

With eight matches remaining in the Premier League and such a narrow margin separating Liverpool from City, Klopp spoke about how close the title race has been this season.

"I could not be further away from thinking it's the best draw because it isn't - it is just the draw, it's the opponent we have to prepare for and that's all we will be thinking about from when we start preparing for the game".

"Let's not disrespect Porto because they got to this stage for a reason, but they won't be looking forward to that tie". This tie looks like Liverpool all the way. "That will not happen this year, for sure".

The last time the Premier League had four teams in the quarterfinals, in 2008/09, Barcelona beat the Old Trafford side 2-0 in the final in Rome.

If we do not win the Champions League, our work for three seasons, every three days, is a failure or a disaster.

Although the stinging media criticism that followed Bayern's Champions League exit suggested otherwise, and with arguably a degree of understatement, defender Mats Hummels described the loss to Liverpool as "a little blow". Since then, Barca have beaten United in two finals (2009 and 2011), and Ernesto Valverde's team will be favourites to progress to the last four.

Manchester United's tie against Barcelona means caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enjoy another trip to the Nou Camp, where he scored the victor in United's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 1999.

"It [leaving] will cross his mind without a shadow of a doubt because he's done what he's set out to do went there".

'Our first big mistake would be to try to do what Liverpool did there.
