The footballing gods have thrown together a tasty Champions League quarter-final tie as Liverpool will take on Manchester City.
The match-up means that an English team will definitely be in the semi-finals of the competition, and given the results between these two clubs this season, it is anyone’s game.
So far, Liverpool are the only club to beat Pep Guardiola’s City in the Premier League this season and they did it in a dramatic 4-3 victory at Anfield.
Jurgen Klopp’s side were outclassed in the first top-flight fixture between the two sides this season as the blue half of Manchester waltzed to a 5-0 triumph.
The scoreline was not the only miserable thing for the Reds; they lost Sadio Mane to a red card after the Senegal international inadvertently kicked goalkeeper Ederson in the face.
Interestingly, the timings of the quarter-final tie slot in between some huge league matches for both clubs.
Anfield will host the first leg on April 4, with the return leg at the Etihad Stadium on April 10, and in between those outings, Liverpool will take on Merseyside rivals Everton and City will play a potential title-winning game against Manchester United.
Liverpool could have been drawn against Real Madrid, Juventus, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Roma or Sevilla, but they will face an all-English tie.
As long as Sadio doesn’t get sent off we’ll be fine! 🤣
