Solskjaer refuses to be drawn on Man United move for Gareth Bale

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

Four British clubs made it through to the quarter final of the UEFA Champions' League, with Manchester United pulling off a historic victory against Paris St Germain after losing the first leg at home 2-0.

The winners of FC Barcelona vs Manchester United will face the victor of Liverpool or FC Porto!

The first legs of Liverpool vs. Porto and Spurs vs. City will take place on Tuesday, April 9, with the second legs on Wednesday, April 17.

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.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique also played in the two finals against Man United, where he spent four years early in his career.

"When I spoke with my chairman, CEO, sporting director, the people here working know and they give credit for what we have done in the last two seasons".




The Catalan side, managed by Pep Guardiola at the time, beat Man United in the Champions League final in 2009 and 2011.

Either way, football fans have plenty to look forward to when Europe's premier competition resumes in April and it's anyone's guess who will qualify for the semi-finals.

Liverpool's challenge for a Champions League and Premier League double sees them come up against Porto, with the first leg at Anfield. And it was at Camp Nou that current manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer scored the late, title-winning goal in 1999, against Bayern Munich. Man Utd were drawn to play the second leg at home, but have to reverse their tie as Man City were also drawn to play the return leg at home.

And Juventus' meeting with Ajax will be a rematch of the 1996 Champions League final at Rome's Stadio OIimpico, a match that the Italians won via a penalty shootout. However, Tottenham were outclassed by Real Madrid at the Bernabeu (4-0) in the first-leg of the quarter-finals, then lost 1-0 back in London.

Jurgen Klopp's Reds are among the favorites having gone all the way to the final a year ago before losing to Real Madrid. Instead of drawing one of five extra challenging clubs to sandwich around a home league date with Chelsea, the Reds will get arguably their best possible challenger.
