NYON, Switzerland (AP) — Manchester United and Barcelona have been drawn to play each other in the Champions League quarterfinals.

Four English teams reached the last eight, and two will meet in the next round. Tottenham will host Manchester City in the first leg in a match which could be at Wembley Stadium or at the north London club's soon-to-be-completed new arena.

Also, Liverpool was drawn with Porto, and Ajax will play Juventus in a rematch of the 1973 and 1996 finals. Each won one of those finals.

The first legs will be played on April 9-10, with the return games are April 16-17.

The final is scheduled for June 1 at the Metropolitano Stadium, the home of Atletico Madrid.
