Liverpool draw Manchester City in Champions League quarter-finals

VIDEO: Txiki Begiristain Reacts to Manchester City Drawing Liverpool in Champions League

The Giallorossi, on the other hand, sit in 3rd place in Serie A, with both Napoli and Juventus too far ahead of them. Picking a victor is not easy and much will depend on whether Liverpool can establish a first-leg lead to take to the Etihad.

There was then a grimace and a drop of the head from Begiristain, but perhaps the City chief was more disappointed to draw a fellow English side, rather displaying any fear of playing Liverpool. Liverpool's much-vaunted attack was blunted fairly easily by United's defensive strategy a week ago.

Pic: Reuters (Manchester City have won one of the past seven Premier League games against Liverpool) Manchester City will face Liverpool in an all-Premier League Champions League quarter-final.

Klopp's tongue was clearly firmly in his cheek with this comment, as United's biggest rivals ready themselves for what should be a pulsating contest between two teams who would rather avoid each other at this stage.

The league leaders should be positively ecstatic that the second leg will be at the Etihad.

The pair have met 178 times in their history, with Liverpool winning 87, City 45 and 46 draws. If they lose their grip on the Champions League qualification spots by the time their game against Barcelona happens, will Roma prioritise the league games over a practically hopeless Champions League tie?

"Everyone expects Barca to go through, but they'll encounter a great Roma team". Surprisingly, they have scored 3 goals past Chelsea twice this season.

"We will have to be at our best, it will be a very close tie and we will have to play two fantastic matches".

Javi Gracia's side go into the game on the back of a 3-0 defeat against Arsenal, but having won three of their last five. That is what the Reds are capable of and why opponents are so wary of them. "We played the final against them past year and we know each other perfectly".

"They are in a good moment results wise [even though] the last one didn't look like that, and we respect them a lot".

For supporters of the two teams involved, it was the worst possible outcome.
