No Manchester City For Juventus Please - Former Italian Premier League Star

No Manchester City For Juventus Please - Former Italian Premier League Star”

The teams will learn their fate at Friday's draw, with this year's final taking place at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano stadium on June 1.

"They are playing brilliantly and the results have been awesome".

The two teams have met three times in the past, two seasons in a row in 2013/14 and 2014/15 and Barcelona count three wins to Ajax's one.

Messi, whose brilliance was key to Guardiola's two Champions League triumphs with Barcelona, is just as risky as Ronaldo and it will be intriguing to see whether any of England's four clubs can find a way to overcome the game's two modern greats. Thirteen players from those teams were named in Southgate's 25-man squad for two Euro 2020 qualifying matches in March. Not since Bayern's Wembley win against Dortmund in 2013 has a Champions League been won without one of them in the victorious team and there has been no sign of either of them slowing up in this season's competition.

Cristiano Ronaldo's hat-trick against Atlético Madrid ensured that Juventuswere also able to overturn a two-goal deficit from the first leg to progress, while Portuguese side FC Porto edged past AS Roma thanks to Alex Telles' spot kick just minutes before a penalty shootout.

He added: 'I wouldn't like Juventus against Barcelona because I think it would be something really special Barcelona against Juventus in a possible final or semi-final.

Of course, Juventus made a huge impression in the last-16.

The only caveat, as confirmed by Uefa, is that Manchester United could have their quarter-final match reversed as they will not be allowed to play at Old Trafford in the same week that Manchester City host a team in Europe.

Jose Mourinho has claimed he hopes to see some English pairings in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

Former Espanyol coach Mauricio Pochettino would relish the opportunity to face his former club's fierce opponents and to try to eliminate them from the tournament.

They are doing so, so well during the competition that I think it would be fantastic for one of them.
