The other tie is an all-English affair, with Manchester City and Tottenham set to tussle for the right to play against Ajax or Juve in the last four.

Former Manchester City boss Stuart Pearce added: "I think Liverpool have gone as favourites now for the competition, being that side of the draw". The Portuguese worldwide has been labeled as ' Mr. Champions League' for his sensational display in the competition, where he has represented with three clubs now - Manchester United, Real Madrid and now, Juventus.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique also played in the two finals against Man United, where he spent four years early in his career.

We had the finals against them in 2009 and 2011 and the semi-final in 2008 when Scholesy [Paul Scholes] scored, and it's those games that our supporters and this club crave.

City, chasing an unprecedented quadruple, beat Tottenham 1-0 at Wembley in October in the Premier League in their only meeting so far this season.

This means an eye-watering final between Ronaldo's Juventus and Messi's Barcelona is still a possibility. United lost 0-2 at home to PSG and, with so many senior players unavailable for the return leg in France, Solskjaer and his team produced a stunning comeback to knockout Mbappe and company.

17 April, second legs: Manchester City v Tottenham and Porto v Liverpool.

He admits that playing at home in the second leg could be an advantage, but he was quick to stress the way Manchester United defied the odds against Paris Saint-Germain the previous round.

United were drawn as the away team for the first leg but the tie had to be reversed, UEFA stipulating in advance following advice from local authorities that they and City could not play at home on successive nights.

City have already lifted the Carabao Cup this season.

But in the last 16 the club were handed a draw at Bayern Munich, the 2nd highest ranked side in Europe at the time, and the second leg away.

The decider will be played on Saturday 1 June at the Estadio Metropolitano in Madrid.

Ajax, who knocked out Real Madrid in the last round, will host 2015 and 2017 runners-up Juventus. Instead of drawing one of five extra challenging clubs to sandwich around a home league date with Chelsea, the Reds will get arguably their best possible challenger.
