Spurs to discover Champions League quarter-final opponents

The home leg of Manchester United's Champions League quarterfinal tie could be reversed in the event of a clash with that involving Manchester City, depending on the outcome of Friday's draw, UEFA said on Thursday.

"He has all the pressure on his shoulders, he scores three vs. Atletico Madrid and they [Juventus] go through", Guardiola said.

Cristiano Ronaldo fired Juventus into the quarter-finals as he bagged a stunning hat-trick including a 86th minute penalty.

"We're all very focused on the Champions League, Leo as well".

"We have been in a semi-final, we qualified [four] months ago and what a great opportunity to win something".

A finalist last season and now in the quarterfinals again, Liverpool is back at Europe's top table.

This is the first time England has had four teams in the quarter-finals since Liverpool and United were joined by Arsenal and Chelsea in the 2008-09 campaign.

Livescore: Latest Europa League result for Dynamo Kiev vs Chelsea
Chelsea confirm their place in the Europa League quarter-finals with a 5-0 victory over Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine on Thursday night. Maurizio Sarri said Olivier Giroud remains a "very important" player for Chelsea after his hat-trick against Dynamo Kiev .

Players set to line up in the Champions League final would miss an England training camp in late May, and Southgate revealed his frustration that the Three Lions' bid to lift their first major worldwide title since 1966 could be severely affected.

Juventus, Barcelona, Porto and Ajax complete the Champions League quarterfinal line-up.

The first legs of the Champions League quarter-finals will take place on Tuesday, 9 April and Wednesday, 10 April. These are, in turn, calculated on how far a team has advanced in European competitions, with points from the Champions League having a bigger weighting difference than points collected from the Europa League.

Liverpool's squad strengthening has allowed them to establish parity with a Manchester City side who ran away with the title previous year in record-breaking fashion.

Spurs were one of Barcelona's opponents in the group stages and Ernesto Valverde's side came out undefeated in the games against the Premier League team, after prevailing at Wembley 4-2 and drawing 1-1 at the Camp Nou.
