UEFA Champions League 2014 – Quarter Final Draw

Well, it has been quite a while since I’ve done this. Not following the draw but actually writing about it on the blog. As it is, I have some time to kill and why not just post the draw again…hours after it concluded and with almost every other footballing site & blog having already posted it!

Here is the draw for the Quarter Finals stage of the UEFA Champions League 2014:

Champions League Draw 2014

First legs of the quarter finals will be played on 1st & 2nd April with the return legs scheduled on 8th & 9th April.

Of course the stand out draw is Manchester United versus Bayern Munich. The team toiling in seventh position in the Premier League against the runaway leaders in the Bundesliga. A manager who has won just one Community Shield against a manager who has a grand total of 13 major honours in club football. A midfield of Michael Carrick, Marouane Fellaini  & Tom Cleverley against the likes of Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos & Mario Gotze. Fullbacks Rafael and Alex Buttner against the flying wingers Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery.

Only advantage as I see it – Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck & Robin Van Persie against Dante, David Alaba & Jerome Boateng.

Bring it on!
