The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League has been announced, and the likelihood of an English team being in the final looks extremely good.
In the most attractive ties of the round, Roma will play Manchester United and Chelsea will play Valencia. In the other matches, Liverpool will play PSV Eindhoven (in a repeat of the earlier group stage), and AC Milan will pay Bayern Munich.
UEFA also announced the draw for the semi-finals, so we have these incredible matches to look forward to: Chelsea or Valencia against PSV Eindhoven or Liverpool, and Roma or Man United against AC Milan or Bayern Munich.
If Chelsea and Liverpool both win their quarter-final matches, the two teams will face each other again, which will guarantee an English club will play in the final.
Out of all of the English clubs, Liverpool has the easiest tie against PSV Eindhoven. Roma will be a difficult side for Man United to overcome, while Chelsea will battle Rafa Benitez’s former club, Valencia.
Dare I say it, but could we see a Chelsea v Manchester United final?
The first leg of the quarter-finals will be played on April 3rd and 4th.
