Dates confirmed for Liverpool vs. Porto Champions League quarter-final tie

Man Utd could have Champions League fixtures reversed - UEFA

Did the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal draw go a long way toward clinching Liverpool's first Premier League title?

That's according to the folks at FiveThirtyEight, which has broken down the likelihood of progression for the final eight teams in UEFA's top-tier club competition.

The matchups are strong, as all eight teams remaining are strong, and we do get one great all-Premier League Matchup in Manchester City vs. Tottenham. "They are wary of what Liverpool can do to them and City don't have that mentality against any other opponent".

There could also be another fixture reversal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team if both United and City progress through to the semifinal stage of the competition.

After beating Spurs at home the Clarets have stumbled to defeat at Newcastle, at Turf Moor to Crystal Palace and then an entirely understandable beating at Anfield last time out.

Manchester United face a daunting tie against Barcelona, although caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will enjoy another trip to the Nou Camp, where he scored the victor in United's Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 1999.

And in the case of the Champions League, they have crunched the data to assess each team's probability of making the semi-finals, reaching the final and winning the competition as a whole.

First out of the draw were Ajax, who dismantled the reigning Champions at the Santiago Bernabéu.
