David Beckham and PSG will host Lionel Messi’s Barcelona in the quarter final of the UEFA Champions League.

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic banned from the first leg, Barcelona will surely fancy their chances of taking a positive result back to the Nou Camp.

In an intriguing draw in Nyon the two favourites, Real Madrid and Barcelona, will be relatively happy with the sides they are facing, but Jose Mourinho will be hoping his reunion with former striker Didier Drogba turns out to be sweet.

High-flying Borussia Dortmund are facing the tournament’s outsiders Malaga and two European heavyweights, Bayern Munich and Juventus go head to head at the Allianz.

The full draw is: Malaga v Borussia Dortmund; Real Madrid v Galatasaray; PSG v Barcelona and Bayern Munich v Juventus.

Galatasaray beat Real Madrid in the European Super Cup in 2001, but lost a two-legged Champions League quarter-final the year after; although the Turkish club did win the first leg 3-2.

PSG and Barcelona have not met competitively since the mid-1990s, and Malaga and Borussia Dortmund have never been drawn together in European competition.

Bayern and Juve have a more storied recent past, and have met each other in the group stages of the competition in 2004, 2005 and 2009.

 Juventus won three of those ties, Bayern two and there was one draw, but the most recent match ended with Bayern thumping the Old Lady 4-1 in Turin.Former England, Liverpool and Real Madrid winger Steve McManaman was among those drawing the names.
The quarter-final, first leg ties will be played on April 2/3 and the return legs on April 9/10, while draw for the semi-finals will be made on April 12th.
