The Champions League Combined XI From Remaining Teams Looks Absolutely Insane

Liverpool, Ajax, Manchester United, Porto, Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, Manchester City and Barcelona have all booked their places in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

On Friday, each team will learn their fate in Europe's premier club competition when the draw for the next stage takes place at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland.

Before that highly anticipated draw takes place, though, it's safe to say that there is talent oozing in its abundance from the remaining eight teams.

Thanks to the folks at Football Transfers, a combined XI of the remaining Champions League players looks deadly.

So, with the team lining up in a 3-4-1-2 formation, Barcelona's Marc-André ter Stegen has taken up his position between the sticks.

In a three-man defensive line, fellow Barça teammate Gerard Piqué has secured a spot alongside Liverpool's Virgil van Dijk and Spurs' Jan Vertonghen.

City's Raheem Sterling and Reds' Sadio Mané are both out on the wings, while Bernardo Silva and United's Paul Pogba complete the midfield quartet.

Ahead of the midfield in an attacking role is none other than Dušan Tadić, who has been in sensational form for Ajax.

The 30-year-old Serbia international, who might be one of the most in-form players in Europe, put on a magnificent display against Real Madrid at the Santiago Bernabéu.

Tadić not only destroyed Casemiro during a brilliant assist, but he also scored in the Eredivisie side's 4-1 thrashing of the reigning Champions League holders last week.

In front of Tadić is none other than Barcelona captain Lionel Messi and Juventus ace Cristiano Ronaldo.

Ronaldo put on a magnificent performance against Atlético Madrid after he scored a hat-trick and secured the Old Lady's progression to the quarter-finals.

Meanwhile, Messi worked his magic on Wednesday night at the Camp Nou against Lyon, in which he scored twice and assisted twice in the Spanish club's 5-1 thrashing of the French side.

Which two teams will make it to the final of the Champions League?
