Champions League quarter-final draw

  • The business end of the football season

What is even more interesting is that both these clubs are still in the Champions League, after both teams won their respective second-legs this week to go into quarter-final draw tomorrow lunchtime.

Two English sides met in last season's Champions League, of course, when Liverpool eliminated Manchester City in the quarter-final stage.

"I wouldn't like Juventus against Barcelona because I think it would be something really special". That was not the case, goals from Raheem Sterling and Bernado Silva soon put the Premier League champions firmly out of sight.

"We have been in a semi-final, we qualified [four] months ago and what a great opportunity to win something".

UEFA have announced just over half (34,000) of the 63,500 capacity at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano will be made available for the fans of the two teams who reach the final on June 1.

Second and unbeaten in Bayern Munich's group, the Dutch side produced a spectacular 4-1 win at the Bernabeu to knock out holders Real Madrid in the Round of 16.

Barcelona and Juventus come next in the betting ahead of Liverpool, United and Spurs, with Ajax and Porto the two big outsiders.

Khawaja ton guides Australia to 272-9 in deciding ODI
Australia again started well with Finch and Usman Khawaja putting on 76 for the first wicket until the Aussie captain departed. He scored 50 and 38 in the first two ODIs before notching his maiden ODI century at Mohali as Australia began their comeback.

But one possible explanation of this might be the fact that UEFA hold mock Champions League draws and these might be the outcome of one such mock incident.

The depth in Pep Guardiola's squad is fueling a challenge for an unprecedented quadruple of trophies, having already won the English League Cup.

"Let's say if two of our teams made it to the Champions League final, then we wouldn't see them, at best, until the Monday before we play on the Thursday".

Tottenham's new stadium, built on the site of its former White Hart Lane ground in north London, should finally get to host a Champions League game after season-long construction delays and safety concerns.

The centre-back became the first Liverpool player to both score and assist in an away Champions League knockout match since Craig Bellamy against FC Barcelona in February 2007.

The quarter-final first-legs will be played on April 9-10 with the return legs scheduled for April 16-17.

Tottenham Hotspur will discover their next opponents in the Champions League on Friday morning.
