Predicting the Champions League Quarterfinals

The draw for the Champions League quarterfinals took place on Friday lunchtime, at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

First out of the bowl were Malaga of Spain, arguably the least fancied of the remaining eight clubs, who were set a mighty test in the form of German side Borussia Dortmund.

Jose Mourinho's Real Madrid came next. The possibility remained they could face great rivals Barcelona, Bayern Munich or Juventus, but Mourinho will be extremely relieved they pulled Turkish club Galatasaray.

The third tie drawn saw Paris Saint-Germain of France set against Barcelona. It's a meeting that will see striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic up against his former club at Camp Nou, though he'll be suspended for the first leg in Paris.

The best of the quarterfinals emerged last, pitting perhaps the best defence in Europe, Juventus, against Bayern Munich, who boast one of the best attacks.

Here are my predictions for all eight ties.
