Manchester United could have Champions League fixtures reversed

Manchester United could have Champions League fixtures reversed

Just don't expect that to begin without Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi having something to say about it.

In three ties between Premier League and Bundesliga opposition, the English clubs won 17-3 on aggregate, which will be regarded as a humiliating outcome by Germany's top teams.

"With the others, Juventus can play on equal terms".

The Portuguese team reached the quarter-finals after scoring a penalty in the extra time of the second leg against Roma.

Pep Guardiola's side are widely considered one of the favourites to win the Champions League, despite the presence of teams such as Juventus and Barcelona in the competition.

Manchester United overcame Paris Saint-Germain, pulling off a shock 3-1 win at the Parc des Princes last week.

"The calendar for the semi-finals (including a potential reversal involving Manchester United FC, for the same reasons, if both clubs from Manchester are still remaining in the competition) will be communicated to all parties on 18 April 2019, following the return legs of the quarter-finals".

Predictably amid the backstop of the Brexit shambles on the political front, some fans wondered aloud whether English teams knew the country was meant to be exiting the EU. He helped Real win four of the past five Champions Leagues and it is hard to imagine the Spanish giants winning any of them without the Portuguese star's contribution.

A team with whom United have shared some great matches in the past.

The last time Juventus faced Barcelona was in 2017/18 and the Italian side knocked out the Catalans, as a 3-0 victory in Turin was followed by a 0-0 draw at the Camp Nou.

"Look, Bayern aren't the same team as what they were, but to go there and to win 3-1 is an awesome result". They overturned a two-goal deficit against Atletico Madrid to book a spot in the next round. "That is the type of guy you face to achieve the next stages".

"We've got a very good chance [of an English club winning the competition]", he continued.
