"But hopefully some will have good experiences with the national teams, some will have a few days off, train hard here and get ready to push again".

Then, following a heroic first-leg effort at Anfield where Liverpool held Robert Lewandowski and the newly rejuvenated Bavarians at bay without the other-worldly services of Virgil van Dijk, the Premier League contenders then strolled into Munich and dominated the Bundesliga champions in what can only be described as a famous European performance.

The semi-final draw was also made and Manchester United will meet Liverpool if both win their last-eight ties. But can they pull off another shock by eliminating Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo, from the competition? United lost 0-2 at home to PSG and, with so many senior players unavailable for the return leg in France, Solskjaer and his team produced a stunning comeback to knockout Mbappe and company.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer himself has a long and successful history in the Champions League.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will be played on April 9 and 10, with the second legs scheduled for April 16 and 17.

Manchester City have been handed the challenge of overcoming English opposition in the quarterfinals for the second successive season, and they will be determined to ensure that Spurs do not inflict the same damage that Liverpool did a year ago.

"Let's not disrespect Porto because they got to this stage for a reason, but they won't be looking forward to that tie".

At the draw at the Uefa headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, the draw also pitted Premier League title challengers Liverpool against Portuguese club Porto, and Italian champions Juventus against Dutch side Ajax.

"That is a great incentive if they are exhausted from their efforts in Germany, and the message from the manager will be along the lines of "I want one last hit from you".

Pep Guardiola would not be too upset if Manchester City slipped up in their latest trophy quest, says Danny Mills, as "the FA Cup is not really on his radar".

Tottenham will host City in the first leg, which could be played at Wembley Stadium or at the north London club's soon-to-be-completed new arena. "Our adversaries deserve to be here, they eliminated Real Madrid and that was no joke".

Barcelona are on course to storm La Liga this year, as they sit top of the league, seven points clear of Atletico Madrid with a game in hand.
