Fans excited by “tasty” Champions League ties – and agree on ones to avoid

After putting four unanswered goals beyond RB Leipzig, Liverpool secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. But who do Reds want or wish to avoid in the draw?

Jurgen Klopp‘s men will play out their third quarter-final in the competition under the manager in April thanks to their last-16 victories in Budapest.

The Reds are in the draw alongside Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Porto, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Man City and Chelsea, with all possible opponents in Friday’s draw.

Each possesses their own pros and cons, some more than others, and will prove a hurdle to overcome to progress to the semi-finals.

Liverpool have met five of the seven teams throughout their last three seasons in the competition, but who will they face this time around?

Here’s what supporters had to say over who they want to see come out of the bowl and who they wish to avoid on Facebook, Twitter and This Is Anfield.


There was a common consensus on the ideal opponents…

“Some tasty potential fixtures there. Don’t really care who we draw, but if I had to pick the one, it’s Real.”

“I believe Porto and Dortmund will be preferable and avoiding Bayern with PSG, for now, will be the best idea.”



City and Chelsea, meanwhile, are ones to avoid…

“Think we need to avoid Bayern and Man City at all costs. Wouldn’t mind Real Madrid as I genuinely think we can beat them.

Porto would the ideal choice but this is the quarter-finals of the Champions League and there are no easy games. Just ask Juventus!!!”

And there were even some light-hearted comments about avoiding Anfield…
