Is there such a things as too many El Clasicos? Well, the two giants of Spanish football Barcelona and Real Madrid were kept away from each other in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League in a nerve-wracking 6 minute draw ceremony held in Nyon today.
The blockbuster tie of the quarter-finals will see Arsenal conquerors and runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich play host to the reigning Italian champions Juventus, who crushed Celtic in the round of 16. Bayern, squeezed past Arsenal on away goals on Wednesday night, and will host Juventus in the first leg of the quarter-finals in the first week of April.
Spanish champions Real Madrid will also get the opportunity to play hosts in the first leg, as Jose Mourinho's team welcomes two of his former players in Wesley Sneijder and Didier Drogba, formerly of Internazionale and Chelsea respectively. The tie will also see a straight shootout between two of the favourites for the golden boot as Burak Yilmaz takes on the considerably more high profile Cristiano Ronaldo.
Barcelona will be on their way to Paris for the first leg of their tie as they will face off against their former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and perhaps the considerably less threatening Maxwell in the quarter-finals. PSG will have their work cut out for them, and England's lone survivor in the competition David Beckham will hope to keep the nation's flag flying as he attempts a dream return to Wembley for the 2013 Champions League final.
The last of the four quarter-finals sees Spanish upstarts Malaga host German champions Borussia Dortmund in what is no doubt the lowest profile tie of the round.
Malaga vs Borussia Dortmund
Real Madrid vs Galatasaray
Paris St. Germain vs Barcelona
Bayern Munich vs Juventus
Matches take place on 2/3 April and 9/10 April.
