Juventus v Real Madrid: Three Keys To Beating Los Galacticos

Jurgen Klopp says Manchester City won't be happy to have been drawn against Liverpool in a Champions League quarter-final clash of Premier League rivals.

It will also be the first meeting of two English clubs in the last eight of the Champions League since Manchester United overcame Chelsea at that stage in the 2010-2011 season on their way to the final.

The match, to be played on 3-11 April, is a replay of last season's Champions League final, which brought Zidane back-to-back European crowns with a 4-1 win in Cardiff.

With very little to play for they will give this game against Bayern all they have.

This would add to the club's points tally and put pressure on the clubs around them to replicate victory when they are back in Premier League action after the worldwide break.

"If we can put our specific style, philosophy and mix it up with our attitude and stuff like this, being fearless, then there is something in it for us. As an example, away tickets for Premier League games are capped at a maximum of £30 and we hope this can be reciprocated for these two fixtures". "They don't defend the result, they go again", Klopp was quoted as saying by Liverpool Echo.

"It is cool. For sure, the first one will be a really exciting game to watch". "I said to all my friends, I think I said it on many interviews as well, that I wanted to come back".

"What's that? If we had Tuesday-Wednesday [it would have been fine] but no, we have the Wednesday-Tuesday rhythm".

Klopp believes Man City director of football Txiki Begiristain was less than impressed about drawing Liverpool when the camera panned to the Spaniard during Friday's draw.

The Italian side are looking for their third final appearance in four years but their first Champions League title for 22 years.

Although very important traits I don't think they have the quality or star power to do to Bayern Munich what they did to Manchester United.

There is hardly any manager in world football that has a good record against him. For purely emotional reasons I would prefer if Juventus would win the entire competition, however, I have a feeling over the two legs Real Madrid will edge it.

"But are we their nightmare?"

Klopp worked with Gundogan at Borussia Dortmund and the Liverpool manager admits his former midfielder got in touch shortly after the Champions League draw.

Following a defeat at Manchester United, Klopp and his team will be looking to go into the worldwide break with three points under their belt at Anfield against the Hornets.
