Follow the last-eight draw of CL and Europa League here

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions' League has thrown up some mouthwatering prospects, but the standout has to be two semi-final regulars Real Madrid and Bayern Munich.

There would be a repeat of the 2015 final as Barcelona face Juventus.

Diego Simeone's Atletico have reached the Champions League final in two of the last three seasons, losing to city rivals Real on both occasions, previous year on penalties.

The team drawn first will play the quarter-final first leg at home, with those drawn second away, and those first leg ties will be shown exclusively live on BT Sport on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th April.

Juventus will host the first leg against Barcelona and the second will see their full back Dani Alves return to the Nou Camp where the Brazilian made 247 appearances in eight years.

Real's current coach Zinedine Zidane was Ancelotti's assistant when Madrid lifted the European title three years ago by beating Atletico Madrid 4-1 after extra-time in the final.

The Slovenia worldwide was somewhat frustrated not to win the game but believes last season's beaten finalists deserve credit for reaching the last eight once again. I'm happy that we're going to come up against each other because it's going to be a great game. In fact, it's nearly definitely true for every other team in the draw, even if Zidane and Buffon disagree.

Both teams are fortified by the knowledge that even in the absence of senior men like Dortmund's Marco Reus and Monaco's Radamel Falcao - both injured in last week's wins - they can turn on the style.

Former Real Madrid great Casillas took to Twitter to laud the Slovenian, writing: "HERO".

"You need to be at your best for 180 minutes or more to overcome Barca", warned Juventus vice-president and former midfield general Pavel Nedved.

Bayern earned the nickname "La Bestia Negra" ("The Black Beast") after consistently knocking Real out of the competition, but Madrid has won the last three competitive matches between the two clubs.

"I saw Monaco's match against Manchester City and I am aware that they have a goal difference of +58 in the league". "It's a fascinating tie". We know what a strong side Barcelona are, but we must be courageous and take the game to them.

Leicester skipper Wes Morgan insisted he was relishing the chance to take on a Champions League giant.

"As well as having that solid (defensive) block typical of Italian teams, they have players who can make the difference, some of the best in every position who are at a very high level".
