Man City await Tottenham in Champions League last eight

15th March 2019, 12:20 by Chris Rivers

Tottenham have been handed a tricky Champions League quarter-final tie after being paired with Manchester City.

While their domestic form has dipped, Spurs were very impressive when dispatching Borussia Dortmund 4-0 on aggregate in the last-16 of Europe's premier club competition.

Their reward is a meeting with Pep Guardiola's City side, who romped to a 10-2 aggregate win over Schalke in the last round, hammering the German side 7-0 in the second leg of the tie.

With the two teams due to meet in the Premier League on April 20, it means City and Spurs will play each other three times in the space of 10 days.

The winners of the quarter-final clash will take on the winner of the Juventus against Ajax quarter-final.

In the other half of the draw, Manchester United will take on Spanish champions Barcelona, with the winner to meet either Liverpool or Porto in the semi-finals of the competition.

The first legs are to be played on April 9 and 10, with the semi-finals taking place on April 30 and May 1.
