Spurs And City Aim For Champions League Last Eight

Spurs And City Aim For Champions League Last Eight

Holders, Real Madrid will on Tuesday, go into the second leg of their clash with Paris Saint Germain with 3-1 advantage, having won the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu.

A goalless draw at home to Porto confirmed Liverpool's place in the last eight - their first for nine years - which was already virtually guaranteed after their 5-0 first-leg victory last month.

There are no restrictions as to who might line up against whom, but with Tottenham's ousting at the hands of Juventus, there remain two more English clubs apart from Manchester City who will be relishing the prospect of progressing further.

Lauding Liverpool's front three of Roberto Firmino, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, former England player Hargreaves said on BT Sport: "I don't think anyone will want to face Liverpool with the attack they have".

"At Anfield in October Liverpool's prodigious attack was tied in knots by the defensive web which Mourinho had spun for them".

'This year we belong there to be honest, it should not be a big surprise and the next round will be very hard, there are seven other very good teams involved, so maybe five or four are from England, it doesn't make it easier to be honest.

Liverpool midfielder Emre Can says all discussions regarding his future have been put on hold until the end of the 2017-18 season.

NASA scientists prepare a unique mission to the Sun
Given that, the Sun has both the potential to sustain and destroy like on Earth, the importance of this mission is well justified. Submit your name and it will be included in a memory card that will fly aboard Parker Solar Probe spacecraft.

We've been told the stickler in Can's negotiations with the club has to do with the insertion of a release clause that Liverpool will not agree to include.

"I think this year we belong there to be honest, it should not be a big surprise".

"Let's see who we will get in the quarter-finals", he added. But I don't think it matters (who we get).

Liverpool have reached the quarter-finals for the first time since 2009 and their manager Klopp believes the five-time European champions are back where they belong. I prefer to not play an English team, but I don't care who.

Liverpool FC head into Saturday's game knowing that a win would move them up into second place in the Premier League table.

Both the rivals sit inside the top four at this stage of the season, and are probably assured of qualification to next season's Champions League.
