Manchester City in UEFA Champions League

Champions League: Tottenham face Manchester City, and it could be Liverpool v Manchester United Manchester United are looking forward to the clash with FC Barcelona

City were drawn to play their Premier League rivals in the quarter-finals of the Champions League on Friday.

The first leg would be played on Tuesday 30 April or Wednesday 1 May, a few days after our Premier League match at home to Chelsea.

Bayern Munich boss Niko Kovač insists his side can not compete with Europe's top clubs following their Champions League exit against Liverpool.

The draw for the semi-finals also took place, with the winners of our quarter-final set to take on the winners of the last eight tie between Ajax and Juventus.

The Norwegian joined Liverpool from Monaco in 2001 and became the club's first-choice left back for seven years, making 224 appearances and famously winning the Champions League in 2005.

Manchester City won both of their Premier League ties with Tottenham last season and also beat Mauricio Pochettino's side at Wembley earlier in this campaign.

For Solskjaer, the second leg will bring back memories of the 1999 final, when the Norwegian came off the bench to score a stoppage-time victor for United against Bayern Munich at Barcelona's Camp Nou stadium. Jürgen Klopp will be confident after the Champions League victory over Bayern Munich.

United have to find a way to stop Lionel Messi, but that will be just one of many challenges facing caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who famously scored the winning goal for United in their 1999 Champions League final win against Bayern Munich at Camp Nou. In the second leg, we saw the character of Porto and the quality they have.

Ajax will play Juventus, first in Amsterdam on April 10, in a rematch of two previous finals.

Mane is now producing his best form of the season, with six goals being scored from his last four appearances in all competitions.

Last year, Cristiano Ronaldo was bought by Juventus, a team which has lost two finals in the past four years, to end that 23-year wait.

The draw for the Champions League quarterfinals has thrown up some classic ties as Europe's biggest clubs attempt to reach this season's final in Madrid.
