After scoring four unanswered goals beyond RB Leipzig, Liverpool secured their place in the Champions League quarter-finals. But who do the Reds want or wish to avoid in the draw?
Jurgen Klopp’s men will play their third quarter-final of the competition under the direction of the coach in April thanks to their last 16 victories in Budapest.
The Reds are in the draw alongside Bayern Munich, Dortmund, Porto, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, Man City and Chelsea, with every possible opponent in Friday’s draw.
Each has its advantages and disadvantages, some more than others, and will prove to be an obstacle to overcome to reach the semi-finals.
Liverpool have met five of the seven teams in their last three seasons in the competition, but who will they face this time around?
Here’s what supporters had to say about who they want out of the bowl and who they want to avoid on Facebook, Twitter and that’s Anfield.
There was a common consensus on the ideal opponents …
Give us Porto, we need a little luck. I’m a little sure we get Chelsea or more likely City

“Some tasty potential fixtures out there. It doesn’t matter who we draw, but if I had to pick that one, it’s real.
– Seino on This Is Anfield.
“I think Porto and Dortmund will be better and avoiding Bayern with PSG, for now, will be the best idea.”

I would take Dortmund Porto or Real. want to avoid the city and the bayern. Chelsea and PSG would be tough but not impossible

City and Chelsea, for their part, should be avoided …
Anyone outside of Porto?

It’s a last 8 as strong as you can really get it, Porto aside. I prefer to avoid an English team tbh.

“I think we have to avoid Bayern and Man City at all costs. I wouldn’t mind Real Madrid because I really think we can beat them.
Porto would be the ideal choice but it’s the quarter-finals of the Champions League and there are no easy games. Ask Juventus !!! “
– Habibur Rahman on This Is Anfield.
The English teams. So boring. But other than that, we’re going to have to face a team that we don’t like at some point if we are to win it. There is nothing we can do about it.

To avoid: Bayern, City, PSG
Anyone else would be fine
The draw would be Porto

And there were even light comments about avoiding Anfield …
I obviously want to draw Bayern or Dortmund the only two remaining German teams so that we can play in Budapest
