United will play FC Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals. The first leg will be played at Old Trafford on April 7 while the second leg will be held at Estadio Dragao on April 15.

The winner of the tie will meet with the winner of the Villarreal v Arsenal tie in the semi-final. Should that winner be United, the first game will be played at Old Trafford once again.

I think this draw is as good as we could have hoped. I wanted Liverpool but I’m not exactly sad now we’ve got the weakest team that’s still alive in the competition – and we won’t meet neither Barcelona nor Chelsea until the final if we get there.

QF 1: Villarreal v Arsenal

F 2: United v FC Porto

F 3: Liverpool v Chelsea

F 4: Barcelona v Bayern
