The balls are out of the bowls at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon and the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals has been completed.
The headline news is that the Premier League’s two surviving paragons have been pitted against one another, with Liverpool snagging a last-eight two-legger against Man City.
No doubt the fixture will be hyped to the nines, which leads Pies to predict: 0-0;0-0; City on penalties.
Elsewhere, Sevilla’s reward for ousting Manchester United is having their tournament unceremoniously ended by Bayern Munich.
Here’s the draw in full…
Barcelona vs AS Roma
Sevilla vs Bayern Munich
Juventus vs Real Madrid
Liverpool vs Man City
The quarter final first legs will be played on 3rd and 4th April, with the return legs taking place on 10th and 11th April.
Indeed, April is shaping up to be a dream month for the hype industry…
4th: Liverpool vs Man City (Champions League)
7th: Man City vs Man United (Premier League)
8th: Everton vs Liverpool (Premier League)
10th: Man City vs Liverpool (Champions League)
