A clash between Juventus and Bayern Munich is the most exciting matchup to emerge from Friday’s Champions League quarterfinal at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
Fans hoping for a yet another installment of the rivalry between Spanish heavyweights Real Madrid and FC Barcelona will have to bide their time and hope that both clubs advance to the semis.
The Blancos drew Turkey’s Galatasaray, whose Burak Yilmaz is currently tied with Real Madrid’s Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for top scorer in the tourney.
Barça faces off with Paris Saint-Germain, who must play the first leg without their star, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, serving a suspension for a red card during the French club’s knockout stage battle with Valencia.
The third Spanish side to advance to the quarters, Champions League newcomer Malaga, drew Borussia Dortmund, a formidable opponent.
Real Madrid, Malaga and PSG will host the first leg matches on April 2-3. The second leg is set for April 9-10.
The draw for the semifinals will take place April 12 in Nyon.
