“Bring it on”, “As bad as it could have got” – Fans react as Liverpool draw Man City

Liverpool were drawn against Man City in the Champions League quarter-finals on Friday, and fans have been left excited by the news.

Jurgen Klopp and his players have been waiting with bated breath to hear who they will face next month, and all has now been revealed.

Runaway Premier League leaders City stand between the Reds and a place in the semi-finals for the first time in 2007/08, with the first leg taking place at Anfield on April 4, and the return fixture being played at the Etihad on April 10.

It is a mouthwatering contest between two of Europe’s most aesthetically-pleasing teams, and is the first ever Champions League meeting between the English pair.

Elsewhere, Barcelona play Roma, Sevilla face Bayern Munich, and Juventus and Real Madrid do battle in a repeat of last season’s final.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the draw on social media.


Some were looking on the optimistic side…


“Rather play them now while there trying to wrap up the league, the chances are if we beat another team we would meet City anyway. Bring it on.”

And others were more pessimistic…


“That was my No.1 worst draw & bloody home leg first as well.”

Ian Smith on Facebook.
