Real Madrid to face derby clash with Atletico in CL draw

UNDER-PRESSURE Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti faces a difficult assignment in the Champions League quarter-final, after his side were paired with city rivals Atletico.

While Real beat Atletico 4-1 in last year's final, they have since struggled against Diego Simeone's side losing both legs of their King's Cup quarter-final clash with Atletico recently, while also suffering a 4-0 thrashing at the Vicente Calderon stadium in La Liga last month.

Elsewhere, Barcelona will travel to face Paris St Germain for the first leg of their quarter-final clash, while Pep Guardiola's high-flying Bayern Munich side will fancy their chances of progressing to the semi-finals after drawing Portuguese outfit Porto.

Juventus, meanwhile, will also have an eye on the semi-finals after drawing French principality side Monaco, conquerors of Arsenal in the last round.
