Manchester United drawn against Barcelona in Champions League quarterfinals

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.

"Following a decision made by relevant local authorities, Manchester City and Manchester United can not play at home on the same night, nor on consecutive nights", UEFA said.

Following an action-packed display in the round-of-16 of the UEFA (Union of European Football Associations) governed Champions League, eight teams have progressed to the quarter-finals of the coveted competition.

The amount of players on an MLB Active Roster from Opening Day to August 31st and the postseason will increase from 25 to 26. Imagine Francisco Lindor or Jose Ramirez at the plate needing to hit 13 home runs to win the derby and win the bonus money.


But Rio Ferdinand, the former United and England defender, claimed this week that Guardiola's reign "will be defined by whether City win the Champions League or not" and said it would be "frowned upon" if he fails to - a judgement the Catalan said he would have no choice but to accept.

Maurizio Sarri's men looked pretty toothless at home to Wolves last week and needed a stoppage-time goal to salvage a draw, and their four previous Premier League away games resulted in three defeats by an aggregate score of 12-0, and a 2-1 win at nearly relegated Fulham.

We had the finals against them in 2009 and 2011 and the semi-final in 2008 when Scholesy [Paul Scholes] scored, and it's those games that our supporters and this club crave.

They can use different systems, how good they are up front with Son (Heung-min), (Harry) Kane, Dele Ali, with the quality from (Christian) Eriksen.

The new documentary, which airs tomorrow (15 March), promises to explore the disturbing background of the case. The girl in question was three years old when she disappeared from her bed in a Portuguese resort in 2007.


"50 per cent of the teams left are English and they are showing the strength of their league". Pochettino and Pep matching tactical wits three times over 8 days in two competitions is a fascinating managerial match-up, but could hit both teams hard. We must try to discover that.

The first leg of the Quarter Final will be at Anfield but a semi final will see the first leg played away from home. True, they've just won 5-0 away in Europe, but let's be honest, this Premier League tie will be far more hard than Thursday's trip to Kiev. Manchester City vs Tottenham Hotspur could very well turn out to be the best quarterfinal as well.

"The first leg of Manchester United v Barcelona will therefore be at Old Trafford", read a Uefa tweet. But even if we don't get a decent result to take with us to Spain, there is so much belief in this squad that you still couldn't write us off.
