The road to the UEFA Champions League Final in Madrid is clear for the four qualified teams of the Premier League.

Juventus and Ajax were drawn first, guaranteeing at least one all-Premier League draw.

Liverpool then drew Porto, the Reds’ faithful certainly counting their blessings following a tough Round of 16 draw versus Bayern Munich.

Spurs get Manchester City, meaning Manchester United matches up with Lionel Messi and Barcelona.

The winner of Spurs and Man City draws the winner of Juve and Ajax, pitting the Barcelona-Man Utd winner against either Liverpool or Porto.

Certainly Liverpool and Juventus will be the happiest with their quarterfinal draw, but each will meet a presumed favorite barring a surprising upset over two legs.
