Champions League draw: Real Madrid and Barcelona kept apart

The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League have taken place, with the three favourites to lift the trophy kept apart.

Real Madrid, who beat Manchester United to advance to the last eight, will face Turkish side Galatasaray. The match will see Jose Mourinho, the manager of the nine-times champions, come up against former players Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, who he coached at Chelsea and Inter Milan respectively.

Meanwhile Barcelona, who made a stunning comeback against AC Milan in the last round, will fancy their chances against  Paris St Germain.

The other standout team in the last eight, Bayern Munich, will play Italian giants Juventus. The German league leaders beat Arsenal in the last round, but were somewhat fortuitous to progress, only advancing on away goals.

The final fixture will see Malaga take on reigning Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund for a place in the semi-final.

The matches will take place on 2nd/3rd April (1st Leg) and 9th/10th April (2nd Leg).
