Liverpool sensation Mohamed Salah will face a tough mission as champions League quarterfinal draw has seen the heavyweights of this decade -- Real Madrid، Barcelona and Bayern Munich -- kept apart، with an all-Premier League clash between Liverpool and Manchester City pulled out of the hat.
The game still considered a balanced tie، with Liverpool still the only team to defeat City in the Premier League this season.
Jurgen Klopp's impressive record against Pep Guardiola with Liverpool and Borussia Dortmund -- the German has five wins in all competitions -- will give the five-time European champions confidence and history is firmly on the side of the Anfield club.
Liverpool have won their two previous two-legged ties against City -- in the League Cup in 1980-81 and 2011-12 -- with City winning just one of their past 30 games at Anfield.
More recently، City have won just one of their past eight encounters with Liverpool، losing five of them، but Guardiola's reign in charge has seen the club rewrite the record books on numerous occasions and City will expect to progress.
