Estimated reading time: 3 minute(s)

Manchester United will trade tackles with Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals following the draw on Friday, while in an all-Premier League clash, Manchester City will face Tottenham Hotspur.

In another quater-final tie, Juventus, who ousted Atletico Madrid with a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick on Tuesday, were drawn against Ajax Amsterdam, who made it to the quater-final for the first time in sixteen years.

Ajax got to the quarter-finals after they sent the three-time reigning champions Real Madrid packing in the Round of 16 with a 4-1 win at the Santiago Bernabeu, and prevailed 5-3 on aggregate.

The fourth English representative in the quater-finals, Liverpool, will face Porto in a repeat of last year’s last 16 tie which they won 5-0 on aggregate.

United, initially drawn away, will play at home in the first leg to avoid a clash with Manchester City, who host Spurs in their second leg.
