Imagine the hype if Manchester United and Liverpool meet in the Champions League semi-finals!

It doesn't bear thinking about. Especially when the hype more often than not leads to poor games between the two. But both clubs have crucial assignments to set up such a contest.

Man United will be underdogs when they take on a Lionel Messi inspired Barcelona. Meanwhile, Liverpool are - on paper at least - favoured to overcome Porto after beating Bayern Munich.

Meanwhile, there are tasty ties in the other half of the quarter-final draw. Manchester City and Tottenham clash in an all Premier League clash. They will then meet the winners of traditional European mainstays Juventus and Ajax.

The Europa League draw has also thrown up some strong draws. Arsenal and Napoli go head-to-head, while Chelsea take on Slavia Prague. Valencia and Villarreal do battle in an all-Valencia province tie. And Eintracht Frankfurt take on Benfica.

So lots to look forward to and that's what we covered on the European Football Show. Nathan Murphy, Stephen Doyle and I reviewed the last-16 games and reacted to the quarter-final draw.

We also ran through our Power Rankings which have of course changed massively since the last episode.

You can watch that back in full above via our YouTube channel.
