Real get Drogba, Barca to face PSG

Updated: March 15, 2013

Lionel Messi and David Beckham could be
sharing the pitch in the Champions League quarterfinals after Messi’s
Barcelona was drawn with Beckham’s PSG on Friday.

The Spanish giants overcame a 2-0 deficit against AC Milan last round to win
4-2 on aggregate, while PSG advanced after topping Valencia, 3-2.

Real Madrid escaped a difficult round of 16 contest with Manchester United,
and Jose Mourinho’s bid to become the first manager to win the competition
with three different teams continues against Galatasaray, which reached the
quarterfinals after a 4-3 aggregate triumph over German side Schalke.

Malaga is making its first ever appearance in the last eight and the Spanish
outfit will meet Borussia Dortmund, while a pair of league leaders square off
in the other quarterfinal with Serie A table-toppers Juventus taking on
runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich.

The first legs will take place April 2-3, with the return fixtures being
played the following week.

Unlike in past seasons, UEFA did not make the draw for the semifinal pairings,
which will be determined next month.
