Champions League 2014: Manchester United draw Bayern Munich and Chelsea face PSG

Manchester United will play Bayern Munich in the last eight of the Champions League, while Chelsea will face Paris St Germain.

United must get past last season’s winners over two legs next month to keep alive their chances of winning a trophy in David Moyes’ first season.

Chelsea will face Paris St Germain for a place in the last four, while Real Madrid play Borussia Dortmund in a repeat of last season’s semi-final and Barcelona have been drawn with La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.

United and Bayern have plenty of recent history in the competition: the Germans provided the opposition when United completed the treble in 1999, while Bayern were victorious at the quarter-final stage in 2001 and 2010.

The current champions have already beaten Arsenal in this season’s knockout stage and finished top of a group featuring Manchester City.

Chelsea, meanwhile, are up against opponents who have joined European football’s wealthy elite since the only previous meetings between the clubs in the 2004/5 season.

That was Jose Mourinho’s first year in England, and his side won 3-0 in Paris before drawing 0-0 at home in the group stage.

Elsewhere Real Madrid have the added motivation of avenging April’s 4-1 hammering in Dortmund which cost them a place in the Wembley final, while Barca and Atletico meet after three drawn games already this season.

Meanwhile, Sky Bet make United 3/1 to beat Bayern in the quarter-finals and 28/1 to lift the trophy, while Chelsea are marginal favourites to progress at 4/5 against PSG but both teams can be backed at 11/1 to prevail in Lisbon on May 24.

Sky Bet’s head of football trading Paul Wiggins said: “Manchester United were already considered the biggest-priced outsiders heading into the draw but their task has just been made significantly more difficult, with holders Bayern considered the side to avoid and odds-on to win the first leg at Old Trafford.

“Chelsea should be reasonably satisfied with both themselves and PSG in the middle of the outright odds before the draw and we consider that one the toughest tie to predict, with the Premier League leaders marginal favourites as they benefit from having the second leg back at Stamford Bridge.”

Quarter-final draw:

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund
Paris St Germain v Chelsea
Manchester United v Bayern Munich

Chelsea travel to PSG on Wednesday 2 April, with the return at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday 8 April. Ties to be played on April 1/2 and 8/9.
