Elsewhere, premier league champions Leicester City will face last year UCL runner-up Atletico Madrid. Following we have a UCL Quarter Final 2017 Draw released by UEFA on Twitter -


Bayern Munich Vs Real Madrid:

As both teams have won a combined of 16 European/champions league title, it would be really fascinating to watch them go head-to-head.

A very special card for Ancelotti, an Italian coach from Bayern Munich side and a former coach of Real Madrid. He will show why he is considered as an expert for this kind of contests. 


On the other hand for Madrid, the trio of Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and Karim Benzema will make things difficult for the opponent. Bayern's Robert Lewandowski assisted by very creative talent Arjen Robben, Douglas Costa and Thiago Alcantara will try to keep the game on their side.

The last time these two sides met, at the semi-final stage of Madrid's glorious 2013-14 campaign, Sergio Ramos made the difference, scoring two goals at the Allianz Arena to kill the tie and help Real to a 5-0 aggregate win.

Atletico Madrid vs. Leicester City:

In the other game, Atletico Madrid will take on Leicester City who beat the superior team Sevilla in the round of 16 by 2-0. While Atletico represents another difficult challenge, the Foxes will be confident they can keep this run going, especially after their Premier League success last term.



Both teams are at their best, trying to counter-attack. However, Leicester City is growing up in this kind of crucial games whereas Atletico Madrid seems to be the most durable team for high matches.
