After that wonderful night in Paris where a stoppage time gave Manchester United the win needed to make the Champions League quarter-finals, we’ve been waiting what seems like an age for the quarter-final draw to take place.
This lunchtime, in Nyon, in Switzerland, that wait came to an end when Manchester United, quite probably, were given the toughest tie possible, when they were drawn against the Catalan giants, Barcelona.
Manchester United will host Barcelona for the first leg with the second leg being played at the Nou Camp.
But the excitement didn’t end with the quarter-final draw as UEFA went on to also make the draw for the semi-finals, with the draw pitting the winners of our quarter-final against the winners of the Liverpool v Porto quarter-final.
The road to the final is suddenly there for all to see, it’ll be hard for Manchester United to get there but not impossible.
Could we really be playing our rivals from down the road for a place in the final in Madrid?
