Real Madrid will have to get past Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals of the Uefa Champions League if they are to continue their bid to be the first team to successfully retain the European Cup since 1990.

Zinedine Zidane’s men, who are top of the Primera Liga table, will face the Bundesliga leaders, with Carlo Ancelotti’s side having home advantage first.

Barcelona, the 2014-15 champions, have been paired with Juventus, the side they beat then to lift the trophy, in the last eight, with the first leg to be played in Turin.

Leicester City, the lone English side left in the competition after beating Sevilla in the last 16, are up against Spanish opposition again after being drawn against last season’s beaten finalists Atletico Madrid.

The other tie has 2012-13 runners-up Borussia Dortmund up against Monaco, the conquerors of Manchester City in the previous round.

The first legs will be played on April 11/12, with the second legs on April 18/19.
