Liverpool and Real Madrid have plenty of history, with the Blancos emerging victorious against the Reds in the 2018 final as they conquered the continent for a 13th time, and will be expected to produce more fireworks when they lock horns.

Manchester City remain in the hunt for a historic quadruple this season, but Pep Guardiola’s efforts to deliver a first Champions League crown to the Etihad Stadium will be tested to the full by Erling Haaland, Jadon Sancho and an exciting Borussia Dortmund side.

Porto , who prevailed as underdogs under Jose Mourinho 17 years ago, stunned Cristiano Ronaldo and Juventus in the last 16 and face another tough task against a Chelsea side that are yet to suffer defeat under Thomas Tuchel.

Bayern Munich retain their grip on the most prestigious of prizes for now, but they were pushed all the way by PSG in last season’s showpiece and will need no reminding of the considerable threat posed to them by the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe.
