Best and worst case scenarios for Manchester United in Champions League quarter-final draw
United’s involvement in the draw appeared unlikely 10 days ago but their comeback victory against Paris Saint-Germain means they are one of four Premier League teams still in contention to lift the trophy.
On paper, the best-case scenario for United would be a two-legged quarter-final against Porto, with the second game at Old Trafford, and with the winner of that game facing either Spurs or Ajax in the last four.
Despite both sides’ impressive last-16 showings, the prospect of playing either Spurs or Ajax in the semi-final wouldn’t be daunting.
It is more difficult to pinpoint a definitive worst-case scenario but a quarter-final against Manchester City followed by a semi-final against either Liverpool, Juventus or Barcelona would provide a sizeable obstacle for United on the road to Madrid.
