Man Utd, Barcelona, Arsenal & more learn quarter-final & semi-final fate

Assessing the Champions League Draw on “The John Dykes Show” Assessing the Champions League Draw on “The John Dykes Show”

And fans of any English club will be left disappointed with Liverpool - should they make it through - Manchester City, United and Tottenham all having over 25,000 season-ticket holders.

"But I would do two matches between English teams, which would mean two teams would be in the semi-finals".

United produced a stunning comeback against Paris Saint-Germain to qualify, while Tottenham beat Borussia Dortmund home and away to secure their place in the draw.

"And with the emotion of that game, the Champions League final, can those players even realistically play on the Thursday night for us?"

"In previous years, we have always had the belief that the Premier League is the best in the world".

Whether he was joking or not, it's fair to suggest that Juventus knew exactly what they getting when they signed Ronaldo from Real Madrid last summer. However, prior to that the last meeting between Premier League sides in the competition came in 2011, when United eliminated Chelsea at the quarter-final stage.

"They're not getting a lot of help from behind".

"We've been in a semifinal, qualified six months ago and what a great opportunity to win something, and then you don't actually get the team together".

Jose Mourinho has claimed he hopes to see some English pairings in the quarter-finals of the Champions League. It's only the second time in the Champions League era that Spurs have reached this particular stage.

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.

"So when they score goals, a lot of it is between themselves".

Messi, whose brilliance was key to Guardiola's two Champions League triumphs with Barcelona, is just as unsafe 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.
