  • Ole Gunner Solskjaer celebrates at the end of the 1999 European Cup final

"Let's say if two of our teams made it to the Champions League final, then we wouldn't see them, at best, until the Monday before we play on the Thursday".

"And with the emotion of that game, the Champions League final, can those players even realistically play on the Thursday night for us?"

"It would be wonderful for Portugal as a country, Netherlands as a country, to have a team in the semi-final".

The other clubs to have booked their spots are European giants Juventus and Barcelona, and surprise packages Porto and Ajax - the latter of whom dethroned Real Madrid last week.

Both Jose Mourinho and Louis van Gaal both failed to reach this stage, while Sir Alex Ferguson oversaw a whopping 12 quarter-final ties; taking United through to the semi-finals on seven occasions.

'I'm excited about this competition' - Unai Emery targets Europa League trophy
Ainsley Maitland-Niles doubled Arsenal's lead in the first half and put the Premier League side in a comfortable position. Aubameyang is Arsenal's top scorer this season with 22 and they are through to the quarter-finals of the Europa League .

Memorable quarter-final matches include that sensational 7-1 triumph over Roma - they lost the first clash 2-1 - during which they romped into a 4-0 half-time lead.

United's unexpected victory over PSG also ensures that they will be regarded as a risky outsider in Friday's draw, but while it's inevitable that the focus will be on the prospect of a first English Champions League victor this season since Chelsea in 2012, it would be wise to consider the threat posed by Messi and Ronaldo, with Barca and Juve respectively, to Premier League ambitions.

Although they won't say so publicly, behind closed doors Barcelona players are quite sure about who they would rather face in the quarter finals of the Champions League, after seeing off Olympique Lyon this week. Barcelona against Juventus in a possible final or semi-final.

"He has all the pressure on his shoulders, he scores three vs. Atletico Madrid and they [Juventus] go through", Guardiola said.

Last season City would have been hopeful of another semi-final showing, but were blown away by rivals Liverpool 3-0 in the first-leg, then fell to a 2-1 defeat at home.
