"But we will try to win, it doesn't matter who against whoever we get".

"Of course, it always matters a bit [who you draw], right?" he said.

Leroy Sane is confident Man City can go all the way in the Champions League, with his sights set on a potentially historic treble.

Speaking to BT Sport, Scholes said: "He [Salah] has had a great season but I think Liverpool in general have had a good season".

Friday's draw means one Premier League club is guaranteed a place in the semi-finals. Uefa is as fond as any of us of a complicated draw.

"The Champions League I think is there [to be won], but we've got to keep our feet on the ground and do the job we've been doing for most of the season".

"It's probably the draw that both teams didn't want", he added. We are one of the eight best teams in Europe at the moment.

City are now enjoying a mid-season break in Abu Dhabi in a bid to recharge batteries ahead of the final stage of the season.

Rodgers, who is now manager of Scottish champions Celtic, was in charge of Liverpool last time they played in the Champions League in 2014/15.

It's been a valuable few days in the UAE, which Bernardo says will be crucial in order to compete with the other remaining Champions League sides.

He told City's website: "It feels great to be in Abu Dhabi, especially because we didn't have the winter break that most other countries have".

Liverpool and City were rewarded for their last 16 wins over Porto and Basel respectively with the first all-English Champions League tie since Manchester United played Chelsea in the 2010-11 edition of the competition.

"In the Champions League there is no time for mistakes, everything has to work, you have to be nearly flawless in both games".
