UEFA Champions League draw: Man Utd face Barcelona, City face Tottenham

Date:

The quarter final draw of the UEFA Champions League gave fans many fixtures to look forward to and savour.

The most interesting one would probably be Barcelona facing Manchester United, as Lionel Messi will look to keep his goalscoring run against English clubs going as he scored twice against Tottenham in the group stages.

Speaking of Tottenham, they will face fellow English rivals Manchester City in the quarter finals. Because of this, the Harry Kane led side will face City thrice in the space of ten days.

Liverpool have been handed an easier task, as they will play Porto about an year after they faced them in the Round of 16 of last season’s competition. They beat them 5-0 aggregate that time.

High flying Ajax will play favorites Juventus, after the Old Lady mounted an impressive comeback to knock Atletico Madrid out in the Round of 16 of this season.

Despite having been drawn second, Man United will first play Barcelona at Old Trafford as the city’s council will not allow both the Manchester clubs to play at home on the same day.

City were drawn second too with Spurs and because of United’s lower European co-efficient, the Red Devils have had to adjust their game to Old Trafford for the first leg.
