Chelsea to Face Benfica in UEFA Champions League Quarter-Final

The draw for the quarter-finals of the 2012 Champions League was made this morning. Premier League’s only representative, Chelsea FC, will face Benfica of Portugal, to be played March 27/28 and April 3/4.

The path to the final has also been announced. If Chelsea beats Benfica in the quarter-finals, Chelsea will play the winner of AC Milan against Barcelona in the semi-final.

In the other quarter-finals, APOEL will face Real Madrid and Marseille plays Bayern Munich. The winners of those two matches will play each other in the semi-final. The draw could set up a Barcelona against Real Madrid final, the first ever clash between those two sides in a Champions League Final. But, of course, Champions League football is never as predictable as that. Or is it?
