Posted by

Draw for quarterfinal stage of UEFA Champions League has been made and fixtures are as follow:

Ajax vs Juventus

Liverpool vs Porto

Tottenham vs Manchester City

Barcelona vs Manchester United

Possible Outcomes

Ajax vs Juventus

This will make for an exciting encounter, DeLigt vs Ronaldo. Ajax’s young squad has a tough job ahead of them. Playing against Juventus won’t be an easy task, but Ajax did their job well against Real Madrid. It will be interesting to see how Ajax’s young gun will play against Juventus’s team full of superstars.

Winner: Juventus

Liverpool vs Porto

Liverpool met Porto last season in the UEFA Champions League round of 16. Liverpool ran out deserving winners that time out. This time Porto looks more mature and have already beaten a solid Roma side. Although, probably Liverpool have got the most favourable of draws in the quarterfinals.

Winner: Liverpool

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

Tottenham vs Manchester City is the best fixture of the quarterfinals stage. Two young, attack-minded English sides going at each other will be a treat to eyes. Remember, last season Manchester City went out to another young English, attack-minded team, Liverpool. This fixture is the most intriguing of all, and there won’t be any favourites.

Winner: Tottenham (Real hard to select)

Barcelona vs Manchester United

Manchester United has probably got the worst draw of all. Their fragile defence will have to cope with Messi and co. An attack consisting of Messi, Suarez and Dembele will test this Manchester United defence to limits. But Manchester United do have a beast of a goalkeeper between their posts who has won them games on his own. Liverpool’s former striker Luis Suarez won’t be looking forward to the Old Trafford reception.

Winner: Barcelona
