It’s Business Time – Gearing Up For The UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals

Champions League Quarter Finals 2019

April 10th

After five minutes of their first leg against Porto, Liverpool fans were in dreamland. After 26 minutes, it looked like being an old-fashioned Anfield procession. But there was enough in the remainder of the game – and in the second half in particular – to suggest that Jurgen Klopp’s men aren’t home and hosed just yet.

 

The Reds travel to Portugal on Wednesday for the second leg of the UEFA Champions League quarter final, exclusively live on Virgin Media Sport. And while they managed to keep the Portuguese side out – ensuring a two-goal cushion – and even felt comfortable enough to remove Sadio Mané and Roberto Firmino from proceedings, a nervy moment or three kept supporters on their toes, and helped to tee up the reverse fixture as another night that could be filled with drama.

 

Porto faced a deficit heading into the second leg of the last round, yet turned things around against Roma; Liverpool, meanwhile, are the last team in the tournament who need reminding that nothing is over at half-time!

 

It’s all set up for another unmissable European night, then – and there’s only one place to catch it! Join Tommy Martin, Graeme Souness, and the rest of the team from 7.30pm, and hold on tight; we’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a wild one!

April 5th

We’ve had Messi magic, drama in Paris, and plenty more besides – but that’s all history now. The quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League are upon us, and two of Europe’s most decorated sides are all set to lock horns in what promises to be a titanic tussle.

 

Manchester United welcome Barcelona to Old Trafford next Wednesday night, April 10th, exclusively live on Virgin Media Sport. The last time the teams met in the tournament, it was in the 2011 final, an occasion which saw the Catalan side run out 3-1 winners. But with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer still working his miracles in Manchester, the United faithful are confident that a famous night could be in the offing.

 

Standing in United’s way, though, is one of the most fearsome prospects in continental football, led by the mercurial Lionel Messi. Already running away with matters in the Spanish league, Barcelona will be all out to follow in the footsteps of their domestic rivals Real Madrid and maintain Spanish dominance in the competition, going a step closer to lifting a trophy they’ve secured five times in the past.

 

The stage is set, then, for one of the showdowns of the season – and there’s only one place you’ll want to be come Wednesday night! Join Tommy Martin, Graeme Souness, and the rest of the team from 07:30pm, and hold on tight; we’ve got a feeling it’s going to be a wild one!
