Champions League: Real Madrid to face Bayern Munich in quarterfinals

Bayern Munich mentor Carlo Ancelotti will come back to previous club Real Madrid after the two groups were matched in the Champions League quarterfinal draw Friday.

Ancelotti guided Real to its hotly anticipated tenth European title in 2014, yet was sacked a year later. In the wake of taking a year-long vacation, the Italian assumed control as mentor of German champion Bayern.

“Matches against Real are clearly extraordinary for me. It’ll be energizing for me to backpedal to Madrid,” Ancelotti said.

“Genuine has a phenomenal group, awesome players and an incredible mentor. It’ll be troublesome however we’re certain and we have an opportunity to experience. Easily overlooked details can be the distinction.”

Genuine’s La Liga match Barcelona, which achieved the last eight after a shocking 6-5 total win over Paris Saint-Germain, confronts Italy’s Juventus in a rematch of the 2015 last.

Leicester City, the main English club staying in the opposition, plays Atletico Madrid – Spain’s third title confident – while Germany’s Borussia Dortmund meets French association pioneer Monaco.

The main leg ties happen on April 11-12, with the arrival coordinates on April 18-19.

In the Europa League, most loved Manchester United was drawn against Belgian side Anderlecht.

The likelihood of winning the mainland’s second-level rivalry ostensibly offers United the most obvious opportunity with regards to meeting all requirements for next season’s Champions League, given Jose Mourinho’s side is 6th in the English Premier League table and six focuses behind fourth-set Liverpool.

Spain’s Celta Vigo confronts Genk of Belgium, Dutch club Ajax meets Germany’s Schalke, while French club Lyon goes up against Besiktas of Turkey.
