Champions League quarter-final draw: English clubs discover their fates

Champions League quarter-final draw: English clubs discover their fates

Man United was drawn Friday to face the five-time champions, who beat the storied English club in the 2009 and 2011 finals.

9 April, first legs: Tottenham v Manchester City and Liverpool v Porto.

Juve produced the comeback of the round after turning around a 2-0 loss against Europa League holders Atletico Madrid to win 3-2 on aggregate. The person who made the prediction is presumably a Tottenham fan, who sent out his predictions a day before the draw was even made. Juventus, Porto, Ajax, Manchester United and Liverpool are historic winners, but not with their current line-ups, as they seek to revive old habits.

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw has laid out mouth-watering clashes on the road to the final at Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on 1 June.

He admits that playing at home in the second leg could be an advantage, but he was quick to stress the way Manchester United defied the odds against Paris Saint-Germain the previous round.

Tottenham will host Manchester City in the first leg, which could be played at Wembley Stadium or at the north London club's soon-to-be-completed new arena.

It's been another sensational week of football, with the thrills and spills of domestic action carrying over into another pulsating chapter of Champions League drama.

Everton have recorded back-to-back clean sheets against Chelsea and they've prevented the Blues from scoring in two of their last three meetings at Goodison Park, so that very recent head-to-head history immediately tells me the Toffees have a chance here. He won the treble in 1998 and scored the winning goal in stoppage time to secure a last gasp victory over Bayern Munich.

Liverpool have previously taken part in six quarter-finals in the Champions League era, all of which have been post-2000. Ajax won in 1973, the third of their four European titles, and Juventus won their second title in 1996.

Elsewhere Ajax pulled off a major shock by dumping out the holders Real Madrid while Porto saw off last season's semi-finalists Roma to earn their place in the draw.

Almiron picked up his first assist against Everton last weekend, and will be full of confidence heading away to Bournemouth this time around.
