The two met at champions league group stage where they drew 2-2 first leg at Now Camp and Barcelona went to win second tie 3-2 at San Siro. Pep Guardiola’s squad won Champion league trophy 3 times in past 6 seasons and face AC Milan, 7 times Champions league champions.

Real Madrid is more favored to be at Semi final as they have been paired with Apoel FC. Ronaldo might use this fixture to get close to Messi in terms of champions league goals. After this stage Real Madrid or may be Apoel will met the win between Bayern Munich and Marseille. If Real Madrid and Bayern Munich win quarter final tie, they will make a date for another mouth watering fixture.

With this champions league draw, the chance to have another El Classico is there. Many football fan if not for their teams, they would like to see Real Madrid vs Barcelona once more.
