Real Madrid have been paired with Bayern Munich in the Champions League last eight, while Barcelona take on Juventus in a repeat of the 2015 final.

Madrid are aiming to become the first team in the Champions League era to win back-to-back titles and negotiated a tricky last-16 tie impressively, beating Napoli 3-1 home and away.

Bundesliga leaders Bayern remain in contention for a repeat of their 2013 treble and head coach Carlo Ancelotti will seek to deny Madrid, who he guided to La Decima – the club’s 10th European title – in 2014.

Clasico rivals Barcelona face Serie A’s dominant force in Juventus, having completed an historic comeback against Paris Saint-Germain – prevailing 6-5 on aggregate amid a breathless finale at Camp Nou to overturn a 4-0 first-leg defeat.

A typically imposing Spanish contingent is completed by Atletico Madrid, beaten finalists in 2014 and 2016, who eased past Bayer Leverkusen and will face Premier League champions Leicester City – conquerors of their LaLiga counterparts Sevilla this week.

Monaco prevailed on away goals after a thrilling tie against Manchester City finished 6-6 overall and Leonardo Jardim’s entertainers will travel to Borussia Dortmund for the first leg of the quarter-finals, which will be played on April 11 and 12.
