Ronaldo, Guardiola & Man Utd... The big winners & losers from the UCL QF draw

So the Champions League quarter-finals have been set, and we’ve got some delicious ties.


We’ve got two rematches of finals past as Manchester United face-off against Barcelona, recalling the 2009 and 2011 showpieces (as well as the semi-final in 2008) whilst Ajax take-on Juventus, a rematch that goes all the way back to 1996 when the Bianconeri ended Ajax’s attempts to defend their title at the very last hurdle.

There were only two sides of the last eight that had never won the Champions League before and both of them have been drawn to face each other. Spurs and Manchester City will throw down in what is sure to be a bruising all-Premier-League clash whilst Liverpool will round out the quarters by facing off against Porto.

Who were the winners and losers of the draw? Read on and find out!

Winner: Liverpool

Well that’s pretty good, eh? After drawing the second-toughest group and then arguably the second or third toughest possible round of 16 opponent, Liverpool have gotten an easy ride in the quarter-finals. Sure, Porto are no mugs, but they’re an well within Liverpool’s grasp.

This will be a double-edged bonus for the Reds. Not only do they have a fairly guaranteed path into the semi-finals (they thrashed Porto 0-5 in last season’s round of 16) for the second year in a row, but now they will find it easier to keep up the pressure in the Premier League title race. The Porto tie sandwiches a match against Chelsea, and were the Dragons fearsome opponents then the chance
