United get Barca, Tottenham to face City


Manchester United have been drawn against Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's men produced a stunning comeback to defeat Paris Saint-Germain and advance to the last eight of the competition and they will need another brilliant display to overcome Barcelona.

United were drawn away for the first leg, but the fixture has been reversed to ensure there is no clash with Manchester City's game against Tottenham.

Four Premier League teams qualified for the quarter-finals and there will be guaranteed to be one English team in the last four after Tottenham and Manchester City were drawn to face each other. Tottenham will have home advantage for the first leg with officials hoping they will be able to play the match at their new stadium.

Last year's beaten finalist Liverpool face FC Porto in the last eight with Jurgen Klopp's men set to have home advantage for the first leg, while Ajax have been drawn against Juventus.

The draw for the semi-final also took place and should both Manchester United and Liverpool progress they will renew rivalry in the last four, while the winners of the quarter-final between Tottenham and Manchester City will face either Ajax or Juventus. 

Champions League quarter-final draw:
AFC Ajax v Juventus
Liverpool v FC Porto
Tottenham v Manchester City
Manchester United v Barcelona

Champions League semi-final draw:
Tottenham/Manchester City v AFC Ajax/Juvents
Manchester Utd/Barcelona v Liverpool/FC Porto
