Power Index predicts Champions League semi-finals

ESPN's Soccer Power Index has predicted that Liverpool, Barcelona, Manchester City and Juventus will all qualify for the Champions League semi-final.

ESPN's Soccer Power Index (SPI) is an international and club rating system designed to be the best possible representation of a team's current overall skill level and the predictor has given Liverpool and Manchester City a better than 80% chance of qualifying while Barcelona are given a 78% of advancing past Manchester United.

Meanwhile in the final leg of the draw, Ajax will play Juventus after the Serie A leaders came from behind against Atletico Madrid with the help of a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick.

United advanced to the last eight thanks to a 3-1 win away at PSG while rivals Liverpool also joined them in the quarter-finals after a 3-1 win away to Bayern Munich on Wednesday.

Barcelona are in the last eight for the 12th successive season while Ajax's return ends their 16-year absence from the final eight.

It is the third appearance for Spurs and Manchester City.
