This morning was the massive draw for the quarter finals of the Champions League, Im going to go into each matchup and even give a little prediction. The draw was kind to Liverpool and Juventus, while Tottenham and Manchester United are in for a tough battle to make it through to the semis.
Ajax Vs Juventus- Ajax looked really good in the round of 16 knocking off Cristiano’s old squad Real Madrid. This Ajax team is young and very talented but over the two legs look for Juventus to go through, with another champions league masterclass from CR7.
Liverpool Vs Porto- These two squads met in the round of 16 last year with Liverpool going through on a 5-0 victory over the two legs. Of course I’m biased here but over the two legs look for Liverpool to be a bit too much for this solid Porto side.
Tottenham Vs Manchester City- I feel like Tottenham is going to hang tough in this one, having just knocked off a very talented Borussia Dortmund squad very convincingly. Look for this one to come down to an away goal with Man City going through. They are the favourite in this tournament right now at +225.
Manchester United Vs Barcelona- You’d think Barcelona would go through with ease in this one but United just knocked off PSG after being down 2-0 heading to Paris. I do believe over the two legs Barcelona’s class will show though and they’ll get through by a goal or two.
Some very intriguing matchups in the quarter finals and some massive matchups on the horizon in the semis. The weekend is here lets enjoy it y’all. Cheers
Go on you BOYS, Go on you BOYS. What a performance last night at the Allianz in Germany. Knocking Bayern Munich out before the quarter finals for the first time in eight years. This Liverpool team loves these champions league ties and seem to play their best against the best. To go into the Allianz and beat Bayern Munich with three away goals says a lot about this Liverpool squad and their chances at getting to the finals of this tournament again this year and hopefully lifting the trophy.
This man, Sadio Mane has been carrying this team on his back of late adding another two goals last night, with huge help from Virgil Van Dijk. VVD scoring goals now on top of how outstanding defensively he has been all year is just the icing on top from the centre back. The draw for the quarter finals is tomorrow and i don’t think there is anyone this Liverpool team should fear drawing at this point. Maybe Juventus Id like to stay away from after watching CR7’s hat trick performance on Tuesday night.
For whatever reason the Champions League has always brought out the best from Liverpool and last night just proved that once again. To beat a Bayern Munich team 3-1 in Germany is just something you don’t see very often, if ever at all. Still a long way to go but if this Liverpool squad can keep battling the way they did last night, the sky’s the limit for this years Champions League run. Lets hope for a decent draw tomorrow and get back to focusing on getting back to the top of the league, with a good chance this weekend against Fulham and Man City not in action. Its been a bumpy road of late for this Liverpool squad but last night was a reminder of how good this team can be. One more day till the weekend hope y’all enjoyed it as much as i did yesterday YOULL NEVER WALK ALONE!!!!
