Bayern Munich have drawn Juventus in the stand out draw of the Champions League quarter-finals, with the other marquee clubs kept apart.

Málaga drew German champions Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid were paired with Galatasaray, while Paris Saint-Germain will face Barcelona.

Bayern last faced Juventus when they travelled to Turin in the final game of the 2009 group stage needing a win to progress through to the knockout phase. They impressively thrashed the Bianconeri 4-1 and went on to reach the final in Madrid.

José Mourinho will get to meet Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder, two players who excelled under his stewardship at Chelsea and Internazionale.

Mourinho signed Drogba in 2004 for £24m and the Ivorian emerged into one of the most feared strikers in Europe when coached by the Portuguese.

Sneijder meanwhile peaked in Inter's treble year and complemented Samuel Eto'o and Diego Milito for a famed triumvirate which contributed to eight of the Nerazurri's 10 knockout goals, as they won the Champions League in 2010.

Zlatan Ibrahimović will return to former club Barça for a second successive season, having started in AC Milan's round-of-16 3-1 loss to the Blaugrana last year.

The Swede played one year at Camp Nou but was a peripheral figure as Lionel Messi was moved centrally to spearhead Barça's attack at Ibrahimović's expense. He will however be suspended for the first leg at the Parc des Princes.

For Qatar, Barça-PSG is a win-win situation. Qatar Sports Investments bought Ligue 1 PSG in 2011 and Barça announced an agreement with QSI in November that Qatar Airways will appear on the club shirt from the 2013-2014 season.

The quarter-final ties will take place on 2-3 April and 9-10 April.
