The draw for the quarter-final stages of the UEFA Champions League has been made. The draw is as follows:

Barcelona vs Atletico Madrid

Real Madrid vs Borussia Dortmund

    Atletico, Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern to qualify for me. Some great ties in there..

  2. Flyvanescence says:

    Barça v Atletico should be interesting.

    Bayern v United should be, entertaining.

  3. Mufc77 says:

    Tough draw but I’d rather we played a German team over a Spanish team. We have a decent record against Bayern but will need to be at our best to advance.

    • Ken says:

      You’ve beaten them twice in 9. Is that decent?

      • Mufc77 says:

        I should have said German teams in general. The German style of play is a lot closer to the English style of play so you can be a little more physical. The Spanish team are soft and look for any reason to go to ground and slow the game down especially when they are protecting a lead.

        • Smokey Bacon says:

          Chelsea have shown the way to beat Bayern with anti-football. Park the bus home and away and do them on penalties.

        • Brock says:

          Robben: Does not even need to be touched to go down. Same can be said for Ribery. Other than that I agree w/ what you say about German teams in general.

  4. Ivan says:

    Barca over Atletico.
    Real over Dortmund.
    PSG over Chelsea.
    Bayern over Man Utd.

  5. Chris says:

    When do we find out what days the teams play at?

    • Ken says:

      I have never understood the thinking of this. If you play Wed the first week you play Tues the next week, a gap of 6 days but if you play Tues the first week then it’s Wed the next week a gap of 8 days. Not hard to see which is preferable.

  6. Tony Butterworth says:

    It’s such a shame there will be two games per day. These are all games I would want to watch live.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Agreed. It’s a shame they don’t space them out so we can enjoy watching them live separately.
