The best seven teams in Europe and Manchester United remain in the Champions League, with the competition resuming on Tuesday 1 April when Barcelona face Atletico at the Nou Camp, while the Red Devils square off against Bayern on the same night.

The draw was always going to throw up some special ties and the clash between United and Munich will be highly entertaining, although recent Liverpool and Manchester City victories at Old Trafford suggest it could be men against boys.

Bayern are a best price 9/5 with Paddy Power free bet to retain their Champions League crown this term and you have to say they are semi-final bound considering the way in which they eased past Arsenal at the last sixteen stage.

It’s hard to pick holes in Pep Guardiola’s side and the Spaniard has just steered his Bayern team to the Bundesliga title with several games to spare. On the flip side, it’s nigh on impossible to consider that the Red Devils will get close to their opponents over two games and that is reflected by the 33/1 about them on the outright market.

Bayern will definitely be joined by at least one Spanish side in the last four, with Atletico Madrid and Barcelona squaring off over two matches, with Diego Simeone’s side not to be taken lightly considering that they top La Liga after 29 matches played.

Atletico are a 22/1 chance with Betfair to win the European Cup and won’t be fazed by two meetings against a Barca side who have blown hot and cold recently, although a 4-3 El Clasico victory at the Bernabeu illustrate that Tata Martino’s side are still a force to be reckoned with.

Boylesports go 4/1 about Barcelona winning the Champions League and it’s the biggest price they have been for several seasons, with the bookies preferring the chances of Real Madrid following the draw which has paired Carlo Ancelotti’s team with Borussia Dortmund.

It’s an interesting match-up considering the German side downed Real at the semi-final stage of the competition last term, with Dortmund perhaps not firing on all cylinders right now although they achieved a comfortable enough qualification against Zenit.

The final tie of the quarter final stage is an intriguing contest between Chelsea and PSG, with the French champions looking to go a step further than last season where they were narrowly edged out at the hands of Barca.

Jose Mourinho is a master in this competition and his team can currently be backed at 14/1 on the outright market, with the Chelsea boss clearly keen to face one of the “Big Three” left in the competition including former employers Real Madrid.
