Flawless draw for Barcelona

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw has laid out mouth-watering clashes on the road to the final at Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano on 1 June.

Although not a spectacular performance, at least it confirmed Leicester are well capable of taking care of teams struggling towards the bottom of the table – and that unquestionably now includes Burnley, who have slipped back into a position where they have increasing fears of the dreaded drop.

Former Spurs striker Bent claims that despite City being favourites, Tottenham have a chance of qualifying for the semi-finals where they will play either Juventus or Ajax.

Liverpool are expected to spend the upcoming worldwide break at the top of the Premier League table with a victory that would push Fulham ever closer to relegation. They can use different systems, how good they are up front with Son (Heung-min), (Harry) Kane, Dele Ali, with the quality from (Christian) Eriksen.

Ajax impressively beat the defending champions, 5-3, owing much of that to a virtuoso display from Dusan Tadic in the 4-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu last week. The five-time Ballon' dor victor promised the Barcelona fans after the finals match of last season that his side would be gunning for glory in this competition.

Ahead of Friday's draw, European soccer's governing body said it would amend the scheduling if both Manchester clubs are drawn to play their home games in the same week.

Former Barcelona star Guillermo Amor has insisted that the Catalan giants can not take Manchester United lightly in their Champions League quarter-final tie. Juve will be at home in the second leg.

The winners of FC Barcelona vs Manchester United will face the victor of Liverpool or FC Porto! It's Porto and we've played there already and we know how good we had to be past year. "Always the first game back is always risky, especially away, when you play at home, it's a little bit easier, but Fulham away will be hard".

It means the two sides are set to play each other three times in just 11 days with Tottenham due to visit City's Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on the 20th of April. "I hope this time we have better luck".

"If you look at the teams that are playing to win the league this year, it is a big competition".
