Liverpool cruised to a 5-0 victory against Porto in Estadio do Dragao in last season's round of 16, before being held to a 0-0 draw at Anfield in a routine second leg, so Jurgen Klopp's team will have no fear of the Portuguese champions.

Last year's beaten finalists Liverpool received arguably the most favourable draw after being paired with Porto, while Manchester United face a daunting tie against Barcelona.

Sadio Mané was on fire again, as he has been throughout 2019, emphasized by his ridiculously brilliant opening goal, supplied to him by the constant colossus that is Virgil van Dijk, who found the back of the Bayern net inbetween Mané's strikes. Can Ole Solksjaer keep up his magic as the Man U manager, or will Lionel Messi and the Barcelona side be too much?

This victory was just the latest in a long line of famous European away nights for the Kop, but where did this performance rank among some of the other memorable matches in Liverpool's Champions League history?

The victor of Tottenham and City takes on the victor of Juventus and Ajax.

The swashbuckling Liverpool of last season could have pushed themselves into big trouble against the resilient and ruthless Bayern, but the Reds showcased their own newfound experience in Europe by controlling large periods of the two matches and outperforming their illustrious opponents.

Liverpool have won 17, drawn four and lost six of their 27 Premier League meetings with the Cottagers. Two years later, Liverpool won 4-2 in west London having been 2-0 down at one stage. "I could not be further away from thinking it's the best draw because it isn't".

The real headliner is the final matchup, however: Manchester United vs. Barcelona.

Ajax will play Juventus, first in Amsterdam on April 10, in a rematch of two previous finals. But can they pull off another shock by eliminating Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo, from the competition?

The semi-final pairings were also made with Tottenham or City to face Ajax or Juventus and Manchester United or Barcelona to meet either Liverpool or Porto.

The final is scheduled for June 1 at the Metropolitano Stadium, the home of Atletico Madrid.
