The Champions League draw has been completed for this season, and now we have the following mouth watering ties to look forward to:

  • Real Madrid vs Tottenham Hotspur
  • Barcelona vs Shaktar Donetsk
  • Chelsea vs Manchester United
  • Internazionale Milano vs Schalke 04

Inter have got a favorable draw, no doubt about that—though as they say, there are no pushovers in the Champions League.

Tottenham playing Real Madrid has the prospect of being a real treat. Watching Gareth Bale and Christiano Ronaldo in the same game—unbelievable.

Shaktar have the unenviable task of facing Barca; I guess someone had to do it and good luck to Shaktar.

The draw is completed with Chelsea playing Manchester United in an all-English quarter final—Chelsea's chance to redeem a disappointing season.

Thus, a very interesting draw and a high possibility of El-Classico in the Champions League semis is something all football fans will look forward to.

More details and reaction to follow soon.
