Liverpool won’t spend big on transfers - Klopp

Manchester United will play Barcelona and Liverpool will play Porto in two of the four quarterfinal matchups determined at the Champions League draw Friday at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The first leg would be played on Tuesday 30 April or Wednesday 1 May, a few days after our Premier League match at home to Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola, the only coach left in the Champions League to have won it previously, is under pressure to deliver European glory at City, and this is a good draw overall, considering they have avoided Barcelona, Juventus, Liverpool and neighbours United.

City are set to face Tottenham in the quarter-finals after hammering Bundesliga side Schalke 10-2 on aggregate in a one-sided last-16 tie.

And they still remain in the hunt for three more titles - the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

Liverpool were drawn to play FC Porto in the knockout rounds for the second year in succession, as Ajax's reward for eliminating the holders Real Madrid is a two-legged tie against Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus. He won the treble in 1998 and scored the winning goal in stoppage time to secure a last gasp victory over Bayern Munich.

English hopes are high that this could be their year in Europe's elite club competition after all four of their representatives made it through to the last eight.

The biggest tie of the round will see newly reborn Manchester United tackle Spanish superpower Barcelona.

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. 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].

"I think there is a possibility they could do it, but I do believe Juventus and Barcelona, they were two of my favourites at the beginning". The final, to be staged at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano, will be held on June 1.
