Man Utd, Barcelona, Arsenal & more learn quarter-final & semi-final fate

All-English Champions League clash is too close to call says Pep Guardiola

Football fans are going insane after the Champions League draw for the quarter-finals has apparently "leaked" online.

This is the first time England has had four teams in the quarter-finals since Liverpool and United were joined by Arsenal and Chelsea in the 2008-09 campaign.

A total of 61,561 packed into the Olympic Stadium in Kiev a year ago for the final between Real Madrid and Liverpool.

A nice spread of interest in the other four teams there, in fairness. Not since Bayern's Wembley win against Dortmund in 2013 has a Champions League been won without one of them in the victorious team and there has been no sign of either of them slowing up in this season's competition.

The biggest result was Ajax seeing off defending champions Real Madrid in incredible fashion at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Ajax midfielder Frenkie de Jong has already signed for Barcelona, while Matthijs de Ligt is a target. It's only the second time in the Champions League era that Spurs have reached this particular stage.

UEFA has confirmed that Manchester United's Champions League quarterfinal tie could be reversed if they are drawn at home in the same matchweek as Manchester City.

"It would be fantastic for Portugal as a country, Netherlands as a country, to have a team in the semi-final". Barcelona against Juventus in a possible final or semi-final.

Barcelona, however, beat Juventus in the Champions League final in 2014/15, winning 3-1 in Berlin, with goals from Ivan Rakitic, Luis Suarez and Neymar. Can Messi or Ronaldo do it at a feted craft beer vendor's in Tottenham?

"I wouldn't like Juventus against Barcelona because I think it would be something really special".

Former Espanyol coach Mauricio Pochettino would relish the opportunity to face his former club's fierce opponents and to try to eliminate them from the tournament.
