Premiership Clubs Avoid Each Other in Champions League Quarter-Finals

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.

  1. chelsea is out. it’s about time their luck goes away. they did not deserve to eliminate porto.
    chelsea will NEVER win the Champions League.
    United Roma is anybody’s guess. could go either way, but United have the slight advantage of playing the second game at home.
    psv pool-not as easy for the reds as it seems at first glance. just ask arsenal…still, after eliminating barca, it would not be fitting to be knocked out by a team like psv.
    bayern milan is also anybody’s guess …both teams are in bad shape, but the new coach could bring momentum to the germans…
    valencia will face l’pool, and united will face ac milan in the semis…
    ac milan will play liverpool in the final: repeat of 2 years ago. liverpool wins again:-)
