Premier League giants Manchester United will face favourites Barcelona in the quarterfinals of this season’s UEFA Champions League (UCL) after the draw was held on Friday afternoon.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and his players will have to face Barcelona in their bid to win a fourth title after the 1968, 1999 and 2008 triumphs.

Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona are one of the top three favourites to win the Champions League this season alongside Italian champions Juventus and Premier League champions Manchester City.

Manchester United will host Barcelona in what’s the first leg of their last eight tie on the 10th of April.

The game will be played at the Theatre of Dreams before Barcelona take on the Red Devils at the Nou Camp on April 16.

Barcelona sealed their quarterfinal passage earlier this week after they thrashed French club Lyon 5-1 in their second leg clash at the Nou Camp.

Both teams had played a goalless draw in the first leg.

Barcelona skipper Lionel Messi was the hero for the Catalans after he scored two goals and provided two assists to lead his side into the quarterfinals.
