The respective draws for the quarter-finals of European football’s two top-tier competitions were held earlier today.

The Champions League’s final-8 features a quartet of English clubs, along with one side from each of Spain, Italy, Portugal and the Netherlands.

And the subsequent draw saw 2 of the Premier League’s heavyweights, in the form of Manchester City and Tottenham, pitted against one another.

Liverpool, meanwhile, will take on Porto, while Manchester United will have to overcome Barcelona to seal their spot in the competition’s semi-finals.

Finally, Cristiano Ronaldo-led Juventus are set to take on giant-killers Ajax.

Chelsea, on the other hand, will no doubt fancy their chances of overcoming Slavia Prague.
