Champions League Quarter-Final Draw Revealed

Champions League logo

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League was announced earlier this morning. The games to be played April 7/8 and April 14/15 are:

  • Villarreal v Arsenal
  • Manchester United v FC Porto
  • Liverpool v Chelsea
  • Barcelona v Bayern Munich

The chances of having one or more English teams in the semi-final were increased by Arsenal being paired against Villarreal, the Spanish yellow submarine side who almost beat them a few years ago, and Man United being paired against FC Porto, the side — when managed by Jose Mourinho — who knocked United out of the Champions League years ago at Old Trafford.

While Barcelona against Bayern Munich is probably the most mouthwatering matchup of them all, the match between Liverpool and Chelsea will be one of the biggest talking points. It seems that the two clubs are inseperable almost like twin brothers who are always fighting against each other. While Chelsea is definitely capable of winning, the psychological advantage in this two-legged encounter will definitely favor Liverpool — especially in the Champions League where Liverpool is more superior.

What’s your opinion about the draw? And based on the quarter-final matchups, who do you think will qualify for the semi-finals, will we see three English teams in the final four again? Click the comments link below and share your opinion.
