Mourinho sees Premier League pairings as ideal Champions League quarter-final line-up

Solskjaer said he had been inundated with messages from friends telling him United’s name is on the trophy

There could also be another fixture reversal for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team if both United and City progress through to the semifinal stage of the competition.

Jose Mourinho has revealed he would like English sides to face each other in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The other clubs to have booked their spots are European giants Juventus and Barcelona, and surprise packages Porto and Ajax - the latter of whom dethroned Real Madrid last week.

United, like City, were initially drawn away in the first leg, but their tie was reversed due to UEFA regulations which prevent two teams from the same city playing at home in the last eight.

A similar white top was worn by a woman shown in CCTV footage from the terminal minutes after Jong-nam was poisoned to death. Prosecutors had sprung a surprise on Monday by asking the court to drop the charge against Siti Aisyah and free her.


There is an all-Premier League clash between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester City, who can still win four trophies this season, with the first leg being only the second game Spurs will have played at their new home on the footprint of the old White Hart Lane. "Let's say two of our teams made it to the Champions League final, then we wouldn't see them, at best, until the Monday before we play on the Thursday".

"My second choice would be what I think would be fantastic extra motivation, something thy would deserve, I'd do Ajax against Porto", he said.

Juventus' courageous turnaround to send Atlético de Madrid crashing out of the competition impressed the blaugranas, which is why they would prefer not to meet them - at least at this stage.

Tottenham were the first of the English teams to book their spot in the last-8 this season after they brushed aside a muted Borussia Dortmund.

New Zealand mosque shooting updates: Many dead, shooter still active
Bush urged anyone who had meant to visit a mosque in New Zealand not to go, to "close your doors until you hear from us again". A video circulated on social media which appears to be of the gunman entering the Masjid Al Noor mosque, and opening fire.


England play Holland in Guimaraes, Portugal, for a place in the final, on June 6, just five days after the Champions League final in Madrid.

Barcelona have faced the Champions League runners-up three times in the past in knockout stages and were eliminated on every occasion, twice in the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup in 1976 and 2001 and once in the 2006/07 Champions League campaign.

The last time Juventus faced Barcelona was in 2017/18 and the Italian side knocked out the Catalans, as a 3-0 victory in Turin was followed by a 0-0 draw at the Camp Nou. For many in the Barça dressing room, Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are the odds-on favourites to win the Champions League this year.
