Sadio Mane is eyeing Champions League glory, telling Sport Bild he believes Liverpool can win the competition for the first time since 2005.

Liverpool and Manchester City have guaranteed their places in the last eight, whilst Chelsea will try and knock Barcelona out of the competition on Wednesday evening.

Romelu Lukaku struck with six minutes remaining to provide a glimmer of hope for United, but Jose Mourinho's side were dumped out of Europe as Sevilla held on to their 2-1 win.

Even though Barcelona have Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, there were enough opportunities created by Chelsea over both legs of the last 16 tie for them to look more vulnerable than might have been thought to be the case. It will be an open draw with no teams being seeded; clubs from the same national association can be pitted against each other.

For years, Toys R Us paid a hefty interest fee. 25 stores will close this week, with the other 75 to follow. Closures are expected to happen over time and not all at once, the Washington Post reports.

The first legs are being played on April 3 and 4, with the second legs played on April 10 and 11. Moscow, they said it was easy when we beat them 7-0, but no-one else beat them by that scoreline. The Blues have had quite the comfortable ride in the Champions League so far, dropping just three points in the group stage having already guaranteed qualification and first place in their group.

We have got the quality to beat every team in the world.

"The dream of Manchester United is to be the top team and win the title but to do it we are going to have to make up a lot of points". Roma are a good side with some talented players, and a very familiar Edin Dzeko has been carrying them, but they're also a pretty good opponent instead of, say, Barça and Bayern.
