Champions League: Manchester City to take on Chelsea's conquerors PSG in quarter final

 
Football News 24/7

Manchester City have been drawn against the French Champions PSG (Paris Saint Germain) in their fist ever Champions League quarter final.

City made history after their 0-0 draw with Dynamo Kiev earlier this week saw them progress 3-1 on aggregate to reach the last eight for the first time in their history.

In the other ties, Real Madrid take on Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich will face Portuguese side Benfica, whilst there is an all Spanish tie as Atletico Madrid take on Barcelona, who rolled over Arsenal in the last 16.

Whilst the likes of Bayern and Barcelona represented a bigger test, and Benfica and Wolfsburg would have been easier opposition, PSG are somewhere in the middle, by no means an easy game, as Chelsea fans will attest to, but no as daunting as taking on one of the giants from Spain or Germany.

PSG last weekend became Ligue 1 champions for the fourth year running with eight games to spare, trouncing bottom side Troyes 9-0.

They are still in contention to win both their domestic cups as well, and will be looking to at least make the semi-finals of the Champions League.

With the league in the bag they can perhaps prioritise Europe more than City, who will still claim to be fighting for the League title, but more re­alis­ti­cal­ly will be looking to secure a top four finish.

The full draw is as follows:

Wolfsburg (Germany) v Real Madrid (Spain)

Bayern Munich (Germany) v Benfica (Portugal)

Barcelona (Spain) v Atletico Madrid (Spain)

Paris St-Germain (France) v Manchester City (England)
