Erik ten Haag's young team have been one of the stories of the season in the Champions League, with emerging stars such as Frenkie de Jong and Matthijs de Ligt blending with the more experienced Daley Blind and Dusan Tadic to restore Ajax's reputation on the biggest stage.
The team is now immersed in a bitter fight for the Premier League titke with Manchester City and have reached the Champions League quarter-finals, where they will meet Porto.
Barcelona will meet Manchester United in the Champions League last eight in a repeat of the 2009 and 2011 finals which were both won by the Catalans, with the help of goals from Lionel Messi. But can they pull off another shock by eliminating Juventus, and Cristiano Ronaldo, from the competition?
"We're at home on Sunday and the way we've played under me, Chelsea was front foot and aggressive and Leicester second half was one I want the team to be like".
Manchester United come up against Barcelona in a huge quarter-final clash, having been drawn against each other on Friday.
With City and United not allowed to play their home leg in the same week, United will entertain the leaders of La Liga at Old Trafford on April 9 or 10, with the return a week later. This tie looks like Liverpool all the way.
Liverpool have nearly three times as many wins in previous Premier League meetings between the clubs and have won the last five, including the two most recent Craven Cottage instalments.
Taking a 2-1 advantage into this quarter final second leg, Liverpool needed a defensive masterclass in Turin to keep out the likes of Alessandro Del Piero and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Pep Guardiola would not be too upset if Manchester City slipped up in their latest trophy quest, says Danny Mills, as "the FA Cup is not really on his radar".
In an article titled "Barcelona tie is what the Champions is all about", they talk about the "bad luck" which United have faced so far in the draws.
The victor of that tie will host either Ajax or Juventus in the first leg of the semi-finals.
Challenging for the Premier League title and now into the quarter-finals of the Champions League - undoubtedly now is a good time to be a Liverpool fan. "Our adversaries deserve to be here, they eliminated Real Madrid and that was no joke". Those games also start at 3 p.m.
