Atlético’s reward for getting through the round of 16 against Bayer Leverkusen is the short trip to Real Madrid in the quarters, in a rematch of last season’s final.
The first leg will be played at home on the 14th April, with the return leg staged at the Bernabeu just a week later on the 22nd.
It’s an opportunity for revenge for Atlético, after last season’s disappointment in Lisbon.
Atleti have already played Real Madrid a massive six times this season, with 2 draws and 4 victories for the rojiblancos.
Paris St-Germain v Barcelona
Atletico Madrid v Real Madrid
Porto v Bayern Munich
Juventus v Monaco
Here’s some instant reaction:
@AtleticoFans perfect, Real obviously shaken by Atletico's recent dominance and this is perfect time to put final nail in their coffin!

Interesting to see how many 'bored' by #UCL draw. Imagine Madrid derby will be an absolute belter given 'revenge' missions both are on

@AtleticoFans It's been a wee while since we pumped them, I'm having withdrawals.

@AtleticoFans Brilliant. Forget the Liga, SuperCopa and CdR, only way to avenge last year is to knock them out of the CL.
