  • 2019 Champions League quarterfinal draw: See who matches up

Alisson is undoubtedly the starting goalkeeper ahead of Simon Mignolet, while Klopp will stick to the defensive quartet of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joel Matip, Virgil van Dijk and Andrew Robertson at the back.

Former England and Real Madrid manager Fabio Capello called Messi one of football's three "geniuses," while Jamie Carragher recently showered him with praise. The 31-year-old Barcelona forward is also the leading scorer in this season's competition with eight goals.

"A great occasion, the sort of games that Manchester United are used to and it will be a great night".

Taking a 2-1 advantage into this quarter final second leg, Liverpool needed a defensive masterclass in Turin to keep out the likes of Alessandro Del Piero and Zlatan Ibrahimovic. @ManUtd, " Pique wrote on Twitter.

Of course, United fans shouldn't be getting carried away, especially for the performance that the Argentina captain put in for his side the last time that he was at Old Trafford.

But despite winning three Bundesliga titles during his three years at Bayern Munich, Guardiola said his time in Germany is viewed as a failure and he believes it will be the same for his career at City, irrespective of domestic success. Naby Keita is still a doubt, although Klopp did suggest he might make a decision on him based on a late fitness test. The two teams meet again in the league just days after the second leg, on April 20.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: 'Defeat 'is a big step backwards'
Solskjaer will have two weeks to mull over the performance while a number of his players head off to join their national teams.

That pairing brought together the only two quarterfinalists who have never been European champion. The title race, on the other hand, does not, particularly one which has been record-breaking with the number of points two sides have amassed simultaneously in one campaign.

Liverpool's first goal set the tone for the tie and their third ended Bayern's hopes of a sixth Champions League crown. Two years later, Liverpool won 4-2 in west London having been 2-0 down at one stage.

"That was maybe the main problem of Liverpool for the last decade". So yes, we can go all the way but you've got to be lucky and good along the way.

Liverpool, who lost in last year's final to Real Madrid, will host Porto in the first leg on April 9. But can they pull off another shock by eliminating Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo, from the competition?

UEFA also drew the semi-finals on Friday, meaning the winners of the Barcelona v United will face either Liverpool or Porto in the last four.
