Europe's super heavyweights avoided each other in the draw for the UEFA Champions League Quarter-finals with the tie of the round arguably Manchester City taking on Paris St. Germain. Barcelona take on fellow Spaniards Atletico Madrid, while the third Spanish side in the last 8, Real Madrid will meet Wolfsburg. Bayern Munich meanwhile, who were seconds away from going out at the hands of Juventus, have possibly the easiest draw of the round, taking on Portuguese giants Benfica.
Manchester City would have breathed a sigh of relief at not having Barcelona or Bayern Munich as their opponents for the second time in three years, but they do square off against a fellow nouveau riche club in Paris St. Germain. PSG, already crowned French champions with weeks to spare, knocked out another English side in Chelsea in the round of 16, and will fancy their chances over two legs of beating Man City. The first leg of the tie will take place in Paris on the Wednesday, 6 April, while Manchester will host the return leg the following Tuesday.
