Harry Kewell-s Liverpool has been handed a tough assignment in the quarter finals of the European Champions League against Italian giant Juventus. Meanwhile Aussie pair of Mark Bresciano (pictured right) and Vince Grella will try and help Parma through to the semi finals of the UEFA Cup when they play Austria Vienna.
The match will be the first time the teams have met since the tragic European Cup final of 1985 at the Heysel Stadium, where 39 spectators died. A commemoration to mark the tragedy has already being mentioned.
They will meet in the first leg at Anfield on Tuesday April 5, with the return leg in Turin on Wednesday April 13.
If Liverpool can upset Juventus, they could potentially set up a mouth-watering clash with their English rival Chelsea, who play Bayern Munich in the quarters.
The other quarter finals will see an all Milan derby with AC to take on Inter, while French leaders Lyon will play Dutch leaders PSV Eindhoven.
Parma will fancy its chances against Austria Vienna in their quarter finals clash, although their main priority will be trying to get out of the relegation zone in the Serie A. They play the first leg away on April 7 and the return leg is a week later at Parma.
Advancement to the semi finals will see a meeting with either CSKA Moscow or Auxerre.
