The draw for the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League was made on Friday. All four of the English Premier League sides are in the mix, and the draw sees two of them, Spurs and Manchester City go head to head. With the semi-final draw also made, there is also the potential of Manchester United and Liverpool meeting in the final four.

Ajax v Juventus To Qualify Odds*

Juventus 1/5
Ajax 1/3
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

Ajax pulled off a big shock in the last round as they produced that stunning success over the reigning champions Real Madrid. Their thumping 4-1 win at the Bernabeu stunned the world of football. Next up for them will be the challenge of Italian champions Juventus. Juventus looked on the way out after a 2-0 loss in their first leg of their round of sixteen tie against Atletico Madrid.

But a stunning hat-trick from Cristiano Ronaldo back in Turin saw them power their way back to reach the final four. Juventus have won five of the last six games against Ajax and are currently undefeated in their last ten against the Dutch side. Juventus lead the overall head to head W6 D4 L2. Ajax are at home for the first leg, but it is Juve who are the even-money favourites to win that fixture* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 6 Juventus wins, 2 Ajax wins, 4 draws

Liverpool v Porto To Qualify Odds*

Liverpool 2/9
Porto 3/1
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

A great draw for Liverpool in this one as they avoided all of the heavyweights. The Reds were up against the Portuguese side in last season’s round of sixteen and Liverpool powered their way to a 5-0 aggregate success. Liverpool progressed to the quarter-finals thanks to a stunning second leg win out at Bayern Munich to knock off the German champions.

Porto came through their tussle against Roma in the last round but they have lost their last two knockout ties against English opposition. Porto have never won a game against Liverpool either and they are really going to be up against it in this one. Liverpool are 1/3 to win the first leg at Anfield* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019).

Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 3 Liverpool wins, 0 Porto wins, 3 draws

Tottenham v Manchester City To Qualify Odds*

Man City 1/6
Tottenham 4/1
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

Manchester City are probably quite happy with this tie as it sees them take on an opponent which they are familiar with. Earlier this season Manchester City collected a 1-0 victory over the Lilywhites in their away game against them. This will be the first ever European fixture between the two sides and City arrived in the quarterfinals in style. They thumped Schalke 10-2 on aggregate, winning the second leg 7-0 at home against the Germans.

It really is the enormous threat that they carry at the Etihad which is going to be the most telling factor. They did, however, lose both games against Liverpool in last season’s quarterfinals. Spurs did a fantastic job as well though in beating Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate in their round of sixteen tie. The Citizens are 4/6 favourites to open with a win in the first leg away from home* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019).

In 156 competitive meetings, City have won 61 to Spurs’ 60, with 35 draws.

Barcelona v Manchester United To Qualify Odds*

Barcelona 1/4
Manchester United 11/4
* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019)

This is just about the last draw that Manchester United would have wanted to pull out of the hat. Barcelona hammered Lyon 5-1 at home in the second leg of their round of sixteen tie against the French outfit. The Catalans are five-time winners of the European Cup and are still one of the clear front runners in the tournament. United start at home in this one and they are likely going to have make that count to take something back to the Nou Camp to defend.

But still, United have won at Juventus in this season’s campaign and they became the first side ever to overturn a 2-0 first leg home deficit in the competition. United roared back to beat PSG in their round of sixteen tie. The Red Devils have only won one of their eight previous meetings with Barcelona in the European Cup/Champions League. Will they be able to handle Lionel Messi and co? United are 9/4 underdogs for the first leg at OT* (betting odds taken from bet365 on March 15th, 2019).

Head-to-head in UEFA competition: 4 Barcelona wins, 3 United wins, 4 draws

Semi Final Draws

1. Tottenham Hotspur / Manchester City v Ajax / Juventus
2. Barcelona / Manchester United v Liverpool / Porto
