We Must Respect Manchester United - Former Barcelona Star

We Must Respect Manchester United - Former Barcelona Star

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.

Juventus will take on young hopefuls Ajax, Tottenham and Man City square off in a mouthwatering all-Premier League meeting and Man United face a Barcelona side containing Luis Suarez and Philippe Coutinho.

City have won their last three games against Mauricio Pochettino's side but Guardiola is taking nothing for granted after Friday's draw, which also saw last year's beaten finalists Liverpool receive arguably the most favourable tie after being paired with Porto. If Manchester United can weather April, then maybe OGS should get a 10-year deal.

In an article titled "Barcelona tie is what the Champions is all about", they talk about the "bad luck" which United have faced so far in the draws.

"But I would do two matches between English teams, which would mean two teams would be in the semi-finals". The last five Champions League games we lost is because we didn't defend like we wanted to, but we learn from that.

Barcelona finished third in the website's list, while Juventus came fourth and Ajax were fifth.

Manchester United takes on Wolves in this weekend's FA Cup quarter-final and City are at Swansea.

Liverpool and Tottenham will play their first legs at home.

A goalless draw at Anfield in the return confirmed Jürgen Klopp's side progression into the last eight - and while Wijnaldum feels their performance away from home was one of their finest of the campaign, he contends the complexion of the contest will be much changed this time around. The boost of having the first leg being played at Spurs' new stadium could be crucial. The final, to be staged at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano, will be held on June 1.

Elsewhere Ajax pulled off a major shock by dumping out the holders Real Madrid while Porto saw off last season's semi-finalists Roma to earn their place in the draw.

Chelsea, meanwhile, needed a last-gasp equaliser to avoid defeat at home to Wolves last weekend, but this is a chance for the Blues to boost their top-four hopes as their three closest rivals in the table are not in league action this weekend.
