Champions League Quarterfinal Draw Out
The quarterfinal pairings for the UEFA Champions League have been released with several intriguing match-ups in the offing. One of the pairings to watch is the showdown between Arsenal and Barcelona, who are meeting for the first time since their Champions League final match four years ago.
Manchester United are in for a tough quarterfinal as they are paired with Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich, who have won all but one of their matches against the Red Devils. However, with Wayne Rooney’s fine form the past matches, there is a big chance that Sir Alex Ferguson’s boys can do a repeat of their 1999 Camp Nou conquest of Bayern.
A French team is assured of moving into the next round as Ligue 1 leaders Bordeaux will tangle with Lyon. Meanwhile, Inter Milan may have gotten away with the easiest assignment after drawing Russia’s CSKA Moscow.
The first leg of the quarterfinals will be held on March 30 and 31 while the second league matches are scheduled on April 6 and 7.
