The stacked deck that is the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal draw always figured to produce some enticing match-ups, and Friday morning’s draw did not disappoint.
Chelsea will face Paris St. Germain and FC Barcelona will meet La Liga foe Atletico Madrid in two of the more intriguing match-ups of the quarterfinal draw.
Defending champions Bayern Munich will meet struggling Manchester United while Real Madrid will meet injury-hit Borussia Dortmund in a match-up that would offer much more appeal if not for the rash of injuries being faced by the German club.
The Chelsea-PSG clash should offer plenty of subplots, as Jose Mourinho looks to continue his mastery of the quarterfinal round against Zlatan Ibrahimovic and a dangerous Paris side. Atletico has given Barcelona fits this seaosn, forcing three draws with their relentless pressure and organization. The all-Spanish match-up could provide a coming-out party for highly-regarded Atleti boss Diego Simeone.
