The draw for the Champions League quarter finals and semi finals have been made, with some tasty ties to look forward to.

Holders Chelsea were drawn out first and paired against 13-time champions Real Madrid in a repeat of last season's semi final.

After knocking out Manchester United courtesy of a 2-1 aggregate win in the round of 16, Diego Simeone's Atletico Madrid will look to go one better and usurp rivals Manchester City in the quarter finals.

There's the prospect of last season's final being repeated a round prior this time around as City and Chelsea could meet, but don't rule out a Madrid derby in the semi final.
