Nyon, Mar 15 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 3/15/2019 11:59:03 AM IST

Tottenham have been drawn against Manchester City in an all-English Champions League quarter-final tie, while Manchester United will face Barcelona.

In the other two ties, last season’s finalists Liverpool were drawn against Porto, while Real Madrid’s conquerors Ajax will face Juventus in a rematch of the 1973 and 1996 finals.

United and Barcelona have met twice in the final, in 2009 and 2011, with the Catalan giants winning on both occasions.

The draw means a return to Nou Camp for United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who scored a stoppage-time winner in United’s Champions League final win over Bayern Munich in 1999.

United, initially drawn away, will play at home in the first leg to avoid a clash with City, who will host Spurs in their second leg.

The first legs of the quarter-final ties will take place on April 9 and 10, with the second legs coming a week later on April 16 and 17. Spurs will travel to the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League on April 20 meaning the two sides will play three times in the space of ten or 11 days. 

Liverpool’s quarter-final against Porto will be a repeat of last year’s last-16 tie which Jurgen Klopp’s side won 5-0 on aggregate.
