Manchester United's Champions League quarterfinal tie could be reversed

Share

Mourinho, who won the competition with Porto in 2004 and Inter Milan in 2010, says he'd like to see an all-English affair for two of the quarterfinal ties.

Barça players agree unanimously about the teams they hope to avoid in the next round - Manchester City and Juventus.

We'll start off with Liverpool, who made it a clean sweep of four Premier League clubs into the quarter-finals after Jurgen Klopp's men inflicted a 3-1 defeat upon Bayern Munich.

Jose Mourinho has revealed he would like English sides to face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals. "But it has been a top league and there haven't been that many teams (in the latter stages) of this one".

In Liverpool's next appearance at this stage of the competition they edged out Juventus, then Chelsea in the semi-finals, before THAT famous comeback victory over AC Milan in the 2004/05 Final. He helped Real win four of the past five Champions Leagues and it is hard to imagine the Spanish giants winning any of them without the Portuguese star's contribution.

The Dutch side were the biggest surprise in the round of 16, eliminating reigning champions Real Madrid.

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.

Both Manchester clubs progressed to the last eight of the competition, but UEFA regulations do not allow two teams in the same city to play on the same day, nor on consecutive nights.

"I would do Ajax versus Porto, as that would mean one of them reach the semi-finals".

Most people have already taken these claims with a pinch of salt, but it is not surprising that many fans are convinced the fixtures for the last eight are real. The other possible opponents - Ajax, Tottenham and Liverpool are viewed as tough sides, although a better alternative to facing City or Juventus.
