UEFA Champions League Quarter-Final Draw: Man Utd Pulled Against Barcelona, Man City Face Tottenham, Liverpool Blag Porto

UEFA’s balls of expectation have been plucked from the bowls of fate and formally laid to rest within the welcoming bosom of the plastic egg-box of mercy – the draw for the Champions League quarter-finals is now complete.

Liverpool have been afforded the lightest obstacle betwixt themselves and a place in the semis: a two-legger against Porto.

Man City and Tottenham will face off in an all-Premier League battle to grim death whereas Manchester United face an unenviable couple of games against Barcelona.

2018/19 Champions League quarter-final draw in full:

Ajax vs Juventus
Liverpool vs Porto
Tottenham vs Man City
Barcelona vs Man Utd

As predictions go, we reckon the Solskjaer bubble is primed to burst as Barca hammer four/five/six past United home and away.

Liverpool go through with a couple of low-scoring wins (perhaps a draw in the away leg) and City will make heavy weather of it but sneak through at Spurs’ expense.

Fuelled by a veinous Cristiano Ronaldo and his self-absorbed quest for Champions League glory, Juve will probably make mincemeat of Ajax over two legs, too.

What do you reckon, Pies fans? Care to stick your necks out…

    How much did City paid to get these easy draws? Schalke, Tottenham. Basel last year, Monaco and Celtic the year before… just give the title to them, Uefa.

    United shall beat Barcelona and then Liverpool, only to lose again in the final against City or Ronaldo FC.

  2. Nuno says:

    As long as Messi and Ronaldo don’t meet before the final, all rest is good for UEFA I guess… but the likely Man City – Juventus and Barcelona – Liverpool semifinals sure sound appealing.

  3. Jeso says:

    Ajax to surprise again. Barcelona for a 3-0 on aggregate victory. grim away goal victory for man city. Liverpool should beat porto…but away games at Porto always tough!
