Wayne Rooney will be demanding more of his Manchester United team-mates in the Champions League quarter-finals
Barcelona v Atlético Madrid; Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund; Paris St-Germain v Chelsea; Manchester United v Bayern Munich

Manchester United are to take on the team they beat to win the European Cup in their treble year of 1999, the reigning champions and favourites Bayern Munich, in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
The task facing David Moyes' side will be even harder after they were also drawn to play the second leg in Munich.

Chelsea have been drawn against Paris St-Germain and the free-scoring Zlatan Ibrahimovic while neutrals will be relieved that Barcelona and Real Madrid, who meet in the Clásico on Sunday, have been kept apart.
Barcelona take on their Spanish League rivals Atlético Madrid – their first-ever meeting in European competition – while Real Madrid face last season's losing finalists Borussia Dortmund, the team who beat them in the semi-finals.

The Chelsea manager José Mourinho said on Friday morning: "We're very, very calm because we know what's waiting for us. It's balanced, but balanced by the top. The big candidates are there. All the big teams, the teams of the moment but also the teams with history. So we have to be really happy to be among the best teams."

This year's final is to be held at Benfica's Estadio da Luz in Lisbon on 24 May
