UEFA Champions League title holders Real Madrid CF will face German heavyweights FC Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals. The fixture was drawn during the draw ceremony at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland today.

Last year’s losing finalists Atlético de Madrid will host Premier League champions Leicester City FC in another interesting match, while Juventus v FC Barcelona and Borussia Dormund v AS Monaco complete the quarter-final fixtures.

The first leg will be played on April 11 and 12, with the second legs scheduled for April 18 and 19.
