Draw for quarters/semi's in 15 minutes. Live on UEFA.com

Really hoping Barça will avoid Real. Other than that I don't really care who they'll face, none of the teams worry me that much.

Looking forward to Milan vs Barcelona. They played a couple of good matches in the group stage.

Real Madrid
Bayern
Benfica
Barcelona

I really have no idea for Benfica vs Chelsea. Who knows which Chelsea team shows up? They have been much better under di Matteo but I think Benfica is a solid team though. As much as I'm cheering for APOEL, that Real Madrid vs Bayern tie looks very tasty.

Looks like a Real-Barca final, although I'm hoping for Bayern to get to the final. Milan did give Barca some troubles in the group stage, but in reality Barca is too strong.

Benfica will be tricky for Chelsea, Benfica are strong at home and more experienced at this level than Napoli so you would hope they can handle an away trip to London

Already looking forward to comments when Real plays rope-a-dope for 89 minutes against Barca in the final and then Ronaldo scores with a header from their only corner of the game.

Madrid/Bayern will be a great tie if it happens.

So did it go like this:

"Madrid will face APOEL and now we'll start the draw."

3/4 look like their is a pretty large gap between the teams.

Chelsea and Benfica will be pretty close, but I see Chelsea winning.

Only way I see Benfica progressing is if they keep a clean sheet at home and win by 2+ goals, but maybe I'm just a fool for falling into this Chelsea hype after three straight wins

I have a gut feeling we won't be seeing a Clasico final

One interesting dynamic is the league form. Barcelona more than likely will put full effort into the CL as La Liga is practically done, while Chelsea still need to make the top 4 (if they win the CL they qualify automatically). I wonder what games surround the Benfica fixture.

Benfica actually has a massive match vs Braga right in between the two legs. It's practically a three-way tie for first place in the Portugese league (Porto is up by one point, and Braga is behind Benfica by 3 points with 1 game in hand)

Because Chelsea's randy after such a great victory. I think Napoli's a better team than Benfica though, that's for sure.

Out of the two Spanish teams, I think Real Madrid has the easier path to the finals.

Don't underestimate Bayern. The two sides have had some pretty epic meetings in the past.

That's not really the point though, Real Madrid has an easier way to the finals, and that's a fact (not saying Bayern is a bad team, just not as good).

It's a pity one of Barca or Milan has to be eliminated already, since they are 2 of the 3 best teams left.

OM will be without Mandanda (starting goalie and captain, suspended) and Diawara (second best CB on the team, out for the season) against Bayern.

Watch out.

Probably true. Milan is going to be a tough test. And if Chelsea don't bottle it against Benfica then they will certainly want revenge on Barca for 2009 I think it was.

Thiago Silva : out 1 month

Emmanuelson, Robinho and Pato injured too

Too much to overcome vs Barcelona

Yep, Silva is a great player. Barcelona is better than Milan (and any other team), but it's a pity the teams won't go into the game with their best roster. It could at least have been interesting.
