How the Champions League quarterfinalists stack up against each other

We take a look at each UEFA Champions League team's head-to-head record against the other quarterfinal teams.

Following Liverpool and Barcelona's progression on the final round-of-16 match day, the list of quarterfinalists of this year's Champions League has been confirmed.

The big talking point from the last round of European matches, apart from the elimination of three-time defending champion Real Madrid, was the progression of four English teams to the last eight. The last time this happened was in the 2008-09 edition, when Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal were the four English teams. Manchester City, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United are the other three Premier League sides this season.

The quarterfinals (and semifinals) draw will be made on Friday and here's the full list of teams left in the competition

Unlike the previous rounds, there will be no seedings or country protection in this draw. The only restriction for this round is that both Manchester City and Manchester United will not play at home on the same night, nor on consecutive nights, "following a decision made by the relevant local authorities" said UEFA in a release. So unless the Manchester clubs face each other in the quarters, the team that finished lower in the domestic league the previous season – in this case Manchester United – will have its fixture reversed if it is drawn at home in the same week as City.

Here's a look at each team's head-to-head record against the other quarterfinal teams. (W=Wins, D=Draws, L=Losses, GS=Goals scored, GC= Goals Conceded)


This season: Wins 8, Drawn 5, Lost 1.

Having entered the competition in the second qualifying round, the Dutch giant defeated holder Real Madrid 4-2 on aggregate in the round-of-16 to make it to the quarterfinals. In all, it has scored 29 goals while conceding 12 — with Dusan Tadic its top scorer with 9 goals, including three in qualifying.

Paulo Dybala is its leading scorer with five goals.

The Scouse side then dismantled Bayern Munich 3-1 in Germany to make it to the quarters.

Porto dumped out last season's semifinalist AS Roma deep into extra time of the second leg thanks to a Alex Telles penalty. It's only defeat in the competition came in the first leg at Rome.
