Meanwhile, in other draws Spanish giants Real Madrid was pitted against last season’s runners-up Borussia Dortmund, while London-based club Chelsea would face French champions Paris St Germain.

Barcelona will play against fellow Spanish club Atletico Madrid, which is already seen as a contest between four-time Ballon d’Or winner Lionel Messi and in-form striker Diego Costa.

United reversed a 2-0 deficit against Greek champions Olympiakos to confirm their spot in the Champions League quarterfinals, while reigning Europa League champions Chelsea beat Turkish club Galatasaray over the two legs to book their spot.

All eight clubs that have made to the Champions League quarterfinal this year topped their groups. Therefore, each and every quarterfinal tie in Europe’s elite competition this season is expected to be very exciting and high in quality.
