THE last eight clubs in this seasons’ UEFA Champions League (European Cup) will find out their quarter-final and semi-final opponents on Friday (March 18).
The clubs in the hat are: Barcelona (Spanish, European & World champions), Bordeaux (French champions), Inter Milan (Italian champions), Bayern Munich (Four-time European champions), CSKA Moscow (2005 UEFA Cup winners), Lyon (won seven French league titles in a row from 2002-2008), Arsenal (Champions League finalists in 2006) and Man Utd (English champions).
At this point in the competition there is no country protection. This means that it is now possible for Arsenal to be drawn against Man Utd in an all English tie. After the quarter-final draw, the semi-finals will be drawn as well.
Liverpool will try to overturn a 0-1 deficit tonight against French side Lille in the Europa League at Anfield. But first, Fulham will be out to bring down one of the biggest names in world football – Juventus. They also trail after a 1-3 first leg defeat in Italy.
