From a neutral perspective, we think that this draw may have been the best possible outcome. There are no easy fixtures that i can call and 4 of the European giants clash against each other. Here are the fixtures :
Atletico Madrid vs Leicester City
Leicester will try to keep their fairytale alive when they take on Atletico Madrid who are in an inspired form. However, the second leg will be played at the King Power stadium and it will be tough to call. This one will definitely go right till the final whistle.
Dortmund vs Monaco
Another unpredictable clash of in-form teams. Monaco lead the french league and Dortmund are currently placed third in the domestic table. Surely no one can make a prediction about this tie.
Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid
Carlo Ancelotti will meet his previous side head to head in the quarters with the second leg being played at the Bernabéu. Two of the biggest names in world football meet and who shall be the last man standing in this fixture? Only time will tell.
Juventus vs Barcelona
After their dramatic comeback against PSG, Barcelona find themselves facing another European giant. Juventus are well clear at the top of the table and might use this as an advantage to rest some players for the big fixture. Barcelona however do not have that luxury as they play catchup with Real Madrid leading the pack.
For many, the final of this competition may be right here in the quarters as it cannot possibly get better than this. The results will be interesting as several teams interesting contenders will still remain to face off in the semifinals. The long arduous isnt going to be over any time soon for these teams.
