 Manchester United have been drawn against holders Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals, while Chelsea face Paris St-Germain.

Spanish champions Barcelona play La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid meet Borussia Dortmund.

The first legs will be played on 1-2 April, with the return matches on 8-9 April.

This year's final is to be held at Benfica's Estadio da Luz in Lisbon on Saturday, 24 May.  United overturned a 2-0 deficit against Olympiakos to book their spot in the last eight, while Chelsea saw off Turkish side Galatasaray.

Premier League champions United beat their Greek opposition 3-0 in the second leg on Wednesday to provide some much-needed relief for manager David Moyes and his players, who are struggling in seventh in the Premier League.



But they now play Bayern, with the first leg at Old Trafford, and Moyes believes the German league leaders - who beat Arsenal 3-1 on aggregate in the last 16 - are favourites to win the competition and retain their European title.

"I was thrilled we were in the draw and that we are in the quarter-final of the Champions League," said the Scot.

"I have to say we have probably drawn out the favourites and holders of the competition. It is a really tough draw for us but one I am looking forward to.  BBC
