Liverpool drawn against Porto in European Cup Quarter Final

Georginio Wijnaldum reflected on Liverpool's pairing with FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals and outlined why he believes it'll prove a "different" tie to the meeting last term.

Man United or Barcelona vs.

9 April, first legs: Tottenham v Manchester City and Liverpool v Porto.

They will play Juventus, who destroyed another Spanish side, Atlético Madrid, who will host the final at the Wanda Metropolitano but won't be in it. The person who made the prediction is presumably a Tottenham fan, who sent out his predictions a day before the draw was even made.

Also on Saturday, Tottenham were drawn to face Manchester City in an all-English pairing, Liverpool will face Porto, and Ajax will meet Juventus.

With their rivals involved in the FA Cup quarter-final action tomorrow, Liverpool and Chelsea have the opportunity to seize the initiative in their quest for Premier League and top-four success, respectively. Ajax won in 1973, the third of its four European titles, and Juventus won its second title in 1996.

"Following a decision made by relevant local authorities, Manchester City and Manchester United can not play at home on the same night, nor on consecutive nights", UEFA said.

The weekend schedule opens on Saturday, with AFC Bournemouth hosting Newcastle United as +105 favorites, and Leicester City visiting Burnley FC as +145 chalk, while West Ham United looks to bounce back from a stunning 2-0 loss at Cardiff City as they host last-place Huddersfield Town sporting short -180 odds. He won the treble in 1998 and scored the winning goal in stoppage time to secure a last gasp victory over Bayern Munich.

While they are by no means firing on all cylinders, Liverpool can take great confidence from the fact they have got through two tough fixtures which if they had lost would have seriously damaged their season.

Manchester United earned their place in the quarter-final draw with a thrilling away-goals win over PSG that saw them recover from a 2-0 home defeat to stun the Ligue 1 champions 3-1 in the French capital.

"We know how good we had to be previous year, " said Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp, dismissing talk of his team getting the easiest opponent.
