UEFA: Chelsea and United meet again; Champions League draws
The draw for the quarter-finals and semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League has been made at UEFA Headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland this morning and, as usual, has not disappointed in terms of quality. England has the greater representation with three clubs remaining but clubs from Spain, Italy, Germany and Ukraine also harbour ambitions to lift “Old Big Ears” aloft in May.
The draw was completely open with no teams barred from facing each other as, unlike previous rounds, there was no country protection nor seedings to take into account. With Wembley Stadium edging ever closer, Stoppage Time – International Football Blog charts the route that the teams will have to take to get there.
