Manchester City success judged on winning Champions League - Guardiola

Jurgen Klopp

The Champions League is heating up and everyone is counting down the days until Manchester United and FC Barcelona meet in the first leg of their Champions League quarter final.

At the draw at the Uefa headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, the draw also pitted Premier League title challengers Liverpool against Portuguese club Porto, and Italian champions Juventus against Dutch side Ajax.

United and Liverpool will meet in the semi-finals if they reach the last four, with Tottenham or Manchester City facing the victor of the quarter-final between Ajax and Juventus.

The spending strategy at Anfield has shifted towards heavy investment in new contracts for the nucleus of a squad that is pursuing Premier League and Champions League success this season rather than looking to bring in new signings.

Virgil van Dijk is in majestic form at the back for Liverpool, with Sadio Mane taking his hot streak to 10 goals in 10 games during the round of 16 second leg win against Bayern Munich. "It's not by accident that three German clubs are eliminated by three English clubs".

However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United will have their work cut out if they are to go any further as they take on five-times winners Barca in the headline tie.

Explainer: Can England win the Six Nations if Wales beat Ireland?
I am sure he will know the buttons to push this week. "We know that's something we'll have to manage". He has changed the psychology of the Welsh team and public.

Messi scored the last two times the teams met - in the Champions League finals of 2009 and 2011.

Therefore, as United finished lower in the Premier League last season, their first leg will now be at Old Trafford, with the second leg at the Nou Camp. Juve will be at home in the second leg. Porto last won the title in 2004.

Tottenham will host Man City in the first leg on April 9, which could be played at Wembley Stadium or at the north London club's soon-to-be-completed new arena.

Barcelona finished third in the website's list, while Juventus came fourth and Ajax were fifth.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Atletico Madrid kept Juventus' European dream alive.

"I think the owners want the Champions League, that's what they came in to do - it's the toss of a coin, they'd probably take one or the other". There are six teams in the Premier League and we can not say they are bad because all of them are in quarter-finals [Arsenal and Chelsea are in the last eight of the Europa League].
