Champions League - quarter-final draw details

The business end of the football season

"I didn't think four [would make it through to the quarter-finals]", he said on Sky Sports News.

Last season's beaten finalists booked their spot in Friday's draw, while Premier League rivals Manchester City had put themselves in the hat by annihilating Germans Schalke on Tuesday, and last week Tottenham finished the job against Borussia Dortmund as Man United stunned PSG.

In three ties between Premier League and Bundesliga opposition, the English clubs won 17-3 on aggregate, which will be regarded as a humiliating outcome by Germany's top teams.

What's more, the report states that Barcelona players want to avoid Manchester City and Juventus.

Below we take a look at how each of the aforementioned quadruple have fared at the quarter-final stage in the Champions League era (1992/93 onwards).

Pep Guardiola's side are widely considered one of the favourites to win the Champions League, despite the presence of teams such as Juventus and Barcelona in the competition.

When he was told after the 3-0 win, which secured a 3-2 aggregate victory for the Italians, that Juve had never managed such a comeback in the Champions League, Ronaldo said, "Maybe that's why they signed me".

It involved more than 2,000 witnesses, with an estimated 125,000 pages of evidential material considered. Kevin Mc Kinney's father Gerard was one of the men killed on the day by the soldier who is now deceased.

Predictably amid the backstop of the Brexit shambles on the political front, some fans wondered aloud whether English teams knew the country was meant to be exiting the EU.

This is the first time England has had four teams in the quarter-finals since Liverpool and United were joined by Arsenal and Chelsea in the 2008-09 campaign.

"We're all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well".

Former City midfielder Howey admits he was surprised all four English teams made it through - especially United and Liverpool.

"Man City kind of got through pretty comfortably in the end".

Messi, whose brilliance was key to Guardiola's two Champions League triumphs with Barcelona, is just as risky as Ronaldo and it will be intriguing to see whether any of England's four clubs can find a way to overcome the game's two modern greats.
