However, after falling at the final hurdle in last season's Champions League, Liverpool will be determined to progress past Porto to reach the semi-finals of the illustrious European competition. Back then, Liverpool won 5-0 in Portugal to start its route to the final. The running now gets tough in the biggest club competition of the world.
Manchester City will once again face an English team in the quarter-finals of the Champions League after being controversially knocked out by Liverpool at this stage last season.
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique also played in the two finals against Man United, where he spent four years early in his career.
The winners of FC Barcelona vs Manchester United will face the victor of Liverpool or FC Porto!
There is an all-Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, who can still win four trophies this season, with the first leg being only the second game Spurs will have played at their new home on the footprint of the old White Hart Lane. England's Manchester United scripted an inspirational comeback after a two-goal deficit from the first leg while their derby rivals Manchester City ran a rout agist their opponents defeating Schalke by 10-2 on aggregate.
The draw is open, meaning each of the eight teams can be drawn against any other team.
A goalless draw at Anfield in the return confirmed Jürgen Klopp's side progression into the last eight - and while Wijnaldum feels their performance away from home was one of their finest of the campaign, he contends the complexion of the contest will be much changed this time around. That is because Barcelona, Juventus and Liverpool remain in the draw. "I could not be further away from thinking it's the best draw because it isn't". The semifinals will be played April 30/May 1 and May 7/8.
Tottenham and Manchester City will face each other in an all-English quarter-final of the Champions League next month.
