Champions League final ticket allocations revealed by UEFA

Champions League final ticket allocations revealed by UEFA

When is the Champions League quarter-final draw?

With Pep Guardiola's team top of the Premier League, 13 points ahead of Spurs in third, City will be the favourites to advance to their first semi-final since 2016.

Liverpool have previously taken part in six quarter-finals in the Champions League era, all of which have been post-2000.

However after an Anfield victory against PSG, the reds had reason for optimism and despite three away defeats - the Anfield wins helped the club progress.

The two sides are joined in the last eight by fellow English clubs Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur, as well as Ajax, Barcelona, Porto and Juventus.

Tottenham were the first of the English teams to book their spot in the last-8 this season after they brushed aside a muted Borussia Dortmund.

Huddersfield may now only be a few weeks away from having their relegation from the Premier League confirmed and they look set to move a step closer to the drop tomorrow against a West Ham side who relish playing at home.

The website has scored each team using its Soccer Power Index, which keeps a track record of their attacking and defensive displays and awards them with an individual score rating, too.

The first leg of the quarter-final ties will take place on 9th and 10th April while the return legs will be played on 16th and 17th April.

Man Utd are amongst Europe's elite in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2013/14, when they lost out to Bayern Munich under former manager David Moyes.

Manchester City and Manchester United will not play their home games in next month's Champions League quarter-finals on the same or consecutive nights following a decision by local authorities, UEFA said on Thursday. The clubs clashed again in the final at Wembley in 2011, with Barca winning 3-1 on that occasion.

Five-time champion Liverpool got a rematch against Porto, the team they beat in the last 16 last season. Twenty years on, Solskjaer will be back in Barcelona for the second leg of the quarterfinal tie as coach of the Red Devils.

The matchups are strong, as all eight teams remaining are strong, and we do get one great all-Premier League Matchup in Manchester City vs. Tottenham. It remains the last time they lifted the European Cup.
