UCL Quarter-Final: Barca get Roma, Madrid to play Juve again

The quarter-final draw of the UEFA Champions League has been held.

It was held Friday morning at the Uefa headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

Defending champions Real Madrid would have to negotiate past Italian giants Juventus if they are to clinch a historic three-peat in the world’s topmost club competition.

The Old Ladies will host the first leg on Tuesday, April 3 before travelling to the Spanish capital for the second leg exactly a week later.

It will be the 20th and 21st meeting of the two sides in Europe, counting as one of the consistent fixtures – second only to Madrid-Bayern fixtures.
