Manchester United will need to overcome Barcelona to keep their Champions League dream alive after an unfavourable quarter-final draw.

The Red Devils’ reward for their remarkable comeback against Paris Saint-Germain in the round of 16 is a meeting with the reigning Spanish champions.

United have won just one of their last eight meetings with Barca, including the Champions League finals of 2009 and 2011.

Barcelona comfortably dispatched Lyon in the last round, winning the second leg at the Nou Camp 5-1 after a goalless draw in France.

There is added incentive for United with Liverpool likely to be awaiting them in the semi-finals after the Merseysiders were drawn against Porto.

In the other half of the draw, there is an all-English affair as Tottenham play Manchester City, the first leg of which could take place at Spurs’ new stadium.

Meanwhile, the final tie sees Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus face his former club Real Madrid’s conquerors, Ajax.

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