Manchester United will face Barcelona in the Champions League when the competition resumes on April. The fixtures will be played April 9, 10, & 16, 17. The other ties are: Ajax vs Juventus, Liverpool vs Porto, and Tottenham vs Manchester City.

I think that Manchester United v Barcelona will be the glamour tie of the bunch. This is going to be a very tough match for us. Messi and co. will pose a real challenge for us. So Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will need to have a detailed plan and he must prepare well for this tie. I certainly believe that he will have his team well-prepared for this battle.

The key players for both sides will ultimately determine the game. David De Gea and his defence will have to be at their best to deal with the dangerous attacks of a Barcelona side that boasts many world class players. But I believe if Ole and his players get their tactics right and we continue to play to our strengths we should advance to the semi-final round. Defensively we must be compact and organized in order for us to be successful.

Full draw:

Ajax vs Juventus

Liverpool vs Porto

Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester City

We will play our first game at home so there isn’t a clash with City for the tie in Manchester.

Semi-final draw:

Tottenham or Manchester City vs Ajax or Juventus
