We'll start off with Liverpool, who made it a clean sweep of four Premier League clubs into the quarter-finals after Jurgen Klopp's men inflicted a 3-1 defeat upon Bayern Munich.

When he was told after the 3-0 win, which secured a 3-2 aggregate victory for the Italians, that Juve had never managed such a comeback in the Champions League, Ronaldo said, "Maybe that's why they signed me".

"There are worse teams that have done well and got to finals". It's only the second time in the Champions League era that Spurs have reached this particular stage.

Predictably amid the backstop of the Brexit shambles on the political front, some fans wondered aloud whether English teams knew the country was meant to be exiting the EU.

"The calendar for the semi-finals (including a potential reversal involving Manchester United FC, for the same reasons, if both clubs from Manchester are still remaining in the competition) will be communicated to all parties on 18 April 2019, following the return legs of the quarter-finals".

Man Utd are amongst Europe's elite in the quarter-finals for the first time since 2013/14, when they lost out to Bayern Munich under former manager David Moyes.

This draw will be a special occasion for the English fans since four Premier League teams have made it to the quarter-finals this season and a number of European giants like Real Madrid and PSG have been knocked out.

"Look, Bayern aren't the same team as what they were, but to go there and to win 3-1 is an awesome result".

But ex-Liverpool man Dossena feels it would be beneficial for Juventus if they can avoid Manchester City in the quarter-finals despite their lack of Champions League pedigree and history.

Impressive in the group - highest points tally of 16, five wins and a draw - and turned around a 2-1 first leg deficit to beat Roma 4-3 on aggregate in the Round of 16.

According to a source, the Red Devils would have to switch and play their first leg away from home to give way to the Premier League champions.
