UCL QF Draw: Messi Vs Ronaldo, Manchester Derby?

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw takes place today. Will Lionel Messi's FC Barcelona get Cristiano Ronaldo's Juventus? Could we see a Manchester derby between United and City?


The draw will be an open one, which means any of the eight remaining teams can meet any other side, even if they are from the same country. So, for example, all four English teams left in the competition could face each other.

The teams that have qualified are: United, City, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Barca, Juve, FC Porto and Ajax Amsterdam.

The draw takes place at 1pm (SA time) today, and SuperSport will broadcast it live on SS3, while Soccer Laduma will also bring you all the updates on our website and social media channels.

There are some spicy potential clashes in the drawing pots – superstars Messi and Ronaldo could face each other for the first time since the Portuguese forward left Real Madrid, while a Manchester derby between Pep Guardiola's City and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's United is another high stakes clash that could transpire.

The semi-final and final draw will also be held in Nyon, Switzerland, today, which means every team will know their potential road map to the trophy.

The quarter-finals will take place on 9/10 and 16/17 April, while the semi-finals will be played on 30 April/1 May and 7/8 May. This season's final is scheduled for 1 June at the Estadio Metropolitano – Atletico Madrid's home ground.
