“If Carlsberg did draws”, “Porto will be out for revenge” – Liverpool fans react to Champions League draw

Liverpool have been pitted against Porto in the Champions League quarter-finals and supporters have provided differing opinions on the draw.

The Reds will face the Portuguese outfit in the last eight next month, in a repeat of last season’s last-16 tie, which Jurgen Klopp‘s side won 5-0 on aggregate.

The first leg takes place at home on April 9/10, and the away decider is scheduled for April 16/17—the official dates are set to be announced shortly.

Elsewhere, an exciting Ajax side will face Juventus, Tottenham will take on Man City in an all-Premier League affair and Barcelona are tasked with knocking out the Reds’ bitter rivals Man United.

Should Liverpool progress to the semi-finals, they will face the winners of the Barca-United clash for a place in the final in Madrid on June 1.

Here’s how Liverpool fans reacted to the draw on social media and our forums.


There was overwhelming positivity surrounding the draw…

“If Carlsberg did euro draws….best draw possible for us”

“I’m loving this right now.”

Some made a point of not taking Porto for granted, though…

“It’s not an easy match, Porto played well against Roma so we must take care.”

“We should not underestimate Porto. Remember what Ajax did to Real Madrid.”

Others were even recklessly looking beyond the quarters…
