World football witnessed another UEFA Champions League draw on Friday.

Ajax will face Juventus in their next knock out match. After thrashing Real Madrid at Bernabeu, they will be looking to pose a strong challenge to the Italian league leaders, whereas Juventus somehow managed to grab a place in the quarter after a 2-0 away defeat against Atletico Madrid.

There are four Premier League teams still in the competition and one of them is definitely going to miss out the semi-final stages following another vital fixture. Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City will face in one of the most exciting quarter-final fixtures of this season.

Manchester City outclassed Schalke 04 in the previous round of Champions League, whereas Tottenham Hotspur held their fort to qualify for the next stage in front of the German opponent, Borrusia Dortmund.

Liverpool have been drawn against the Portuguese side, Porto FC. After watching Liverpool's performance against Bayern Munich, it is expected that Liverpool will easily qualify for the semi-finals.

It is going to be another hard task for Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as his team will face FC Barcelona in their next UEFA Champions League. After a disappointing loss at Old Trafford in the first leg of the round 16, Man United knocked PSG out of the competition in the second leg of that tie. On the other hand, Barcelona launched a 5-1 home victory over Lyon to qualify for the next round.

A few great matches are waiting for the football fans. The first leg of the quarterfinals will be played on April 9 and 10. Fans could expect some dramatic moments. This is the quarter-final stage where anything can happen.
