Atlético Madrid will take on Barcelona in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.
The red and whites were paired with the Catalan giants in Friday’s draw in Nyon, with the first leg set for April 5/6 in the Camp Nou, and the return a week later at the Vicente Calderón.
Barça are the current holders of the competition, having beaten Juventus 3-1 in last year’s final in Berlin. They are also currently eight points ahead of Atleti at the top of La Liga.
The draw is a repeat of the 2014 quarter-final, where Diego Simeone’s men progressed 2-1 on aggregate thanks to Koke’s winning goal in the second leg.
Odds will be stacked against Atleti, who have struggled against the dynamic strike force of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez over the last couple of seasons.
However, it is not an easy draw for the Blaugrana either, who can expect a gruelling battle over the two matches against the team with statistically the best defence in Europe.
Elsewhere, Real Madrid have been paired with Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich take on Atleti’s group opponents Benfica, and PSG meet Manchester City.
Are you happy with the draw? Do Atleti stand a chance over two legs against the holders?
