Barcelona face PSG and Bayern take on Juventus as UEFA Champions League quarterfinals are set

LionelMessi (Zimbio)

Paris St. Germain’s quest to become a world power and European champion will have to go through the top team in the world after the draw for the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals set up a dream tie between PSG and FC Barcelona.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic and PSG will take on Lionel Messi and Barcelona in one of the most intriguing match-ups chosen in the Round of Eight draw, which was held on Friday morning.

Juventus take on Bayern Munich in another enticing match-up as Andrea Pirlo and the Italian champions look to stop the team that has been in the best form in Europe.

Jose Mourinho will face a reunion against two of his former players in another quarterfinal as he and Real Madrid take on Didier Drogba, Wesley Sneijder and Galatasaray.

The remaining quarterfinal will see high-flying Borussia Dormtund take on young star striker Isco and Malaga.

What do you think of these match-ups? Who do you see progressing to the semifinals? Think PSG can eliminate Barcelona? Who do you see taking the Bayern-Juventus match-up?

      I think they’re doing it after the QFs this year. Dortmund-Malaga should be a good one. One is a power through its position in the community, one has billions of dollars of backing. Also, Dortmund are quite possibly the side Barca claim to be. Good in possession, and interesting to watch .

      none of these teams would finish in the top half of EPL. They are soft and play a brand of soccer that does not translate outside of their sissy little borders. Short passes? Attacking through the middle of the park? Could never work in EPL, the most hardcore of leagues ever!

      btw, this was sarcastic…

      That is what I was thinking when I saw these draws, everything is set up nicely for a potential Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona. I had this belief before the tournament even started, the ratings would be very good. Not to say the other teams are unworthy Juventus, Bayern, Dortmund, and PSG are all talented teams.
