Note: The post about the 2009 Quarter Finals Draw is here.
The Quarter-Finals draw of the UEFA Champions League has been done and I’m sure both Chelsea and Barcelona would be mighty pleased as they were drawn against less-fancied opponents. Barcelona will face Germany’s Schalke 04 whilst Chelsea would face off against Turkey’s Fenerbahce.
As was expected (feared?), two English clubs have been drawn to face each other and the unlucky ones are Arsenal and Liverpool who will play each other in the UCL for the first time. Manchester United have been drawn to play Roma – whom they had beaten comprehensively in last year’s QF’s.
