Liverpool draw Man City; Real vs Juve in Champions League rematch

The tie will be the first meeting between Premier League sides in the Champions League quarter-finals since 2010-11 when United beat Chelsea. "Obviously whoever made the schedule did not think we would reach the quarter-finals because the derby was originally a Sunday game".

He responded: "No, not now, I don't want to play an English team now". Oops, it's only Liverpool.

Klopp revealed he had already exchanged texts with Ilkay Gundogan, his former player at Borussia Dortmund who is now at City.

"In the Champions League there is no time for mistakes, you have to be nearly ideal in both games".

5 - Jurgen Klopp has beaten Pep Guardiola on five different occasions in all competitions; more than any other manager.

A blockbuster quarterfinal match-up of the English giants, Manchester city and Liverpool was the most intriguing match-ups in them all. "It is not ideal", he said.

"I hope that goes for them too! We know each other very well", Butragueno told beIN SPORTS during the broadcast of the draw in Nyon, Switzerland.

"If I can not be angry about something like that anything, if I have to be politically correct and say nothing, then I'm dead".

Klopp and Guardiola have a long history against one another, with the two having gone head-to-head in Germany as managers of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund before resuming their rivalry in England with Liverpool and Man City.

"Why could the game not have been staged at a "normal" time".

Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp has suggested that the Manchester United fans will be happiest with his side's hard Champions League quarter-final draw against local rivals Manchester City.

Jordan Henderson, who was on the bench for the Man Utd game, is expected to be back and Klopp will make a late decision on choosing the third midfielder to play alongside Henderson and Can. "We know that we'll face the best team in the draw, the team that have won the last two Champions Leagues", Nedved said.

"We worked together with the national team and it is what we do in this case, 100 percent, " Klopp said.

"So we'll be very focused when we go over there (for the first leg) and then we'll do the business at home".

"Just one question and one answer on the Champions League, because now we have to think about SPAL", said Allegri. I have no problem with that.

"I love these games". It is not about what has happened in the past.

"[There are] a lot of things you can learn from this game, a lot of things you have to learn from this game".
