David Moyes’ idea that Manchester United could still go on to win the Champions League took a hit on Friday as the Scot saw his side drawn against holders Bayern Munich.

Pep Guardiola’s side is unbeaten domestically, and look about as strong as last year’s side who won just about every trophy available to them. It will be the first meeting since since 2010 when Bayern eliminated Manchester United with the help of a red card on right back Rafael da Silva.

Chelsea, the only other remaining English side in the competition, were drawn against French giants Paris Saint-Germain setting up what should be a terrific tie over two legs.

Champions League Draw

Barcelona vs. Atletico Madrid
An all Spanish affair sets up an opportunity for Atletico to make an impression on the world’s stage against the strongest club team of the last decade. Their domestic fixtures won’t get as much attention abroad like this one will.

Real Madrid vs. Borussia Dortmund
Madrid stormed into the next round with dominant showing against Schalke. Led by Ronaldo, Carlo Ancelotti’s side appears to be hitting on all cylinders right now.

Paris Saint-Germain vs. Chelsea
If anyone can slow down Zlatan and Cavani, it would be the tactical mind of Jose Mourinho. Will the Blues be able to hit the French on the counter effectively?

Manchester United vs. Bayern Munich
In what appears to be the worst against the best relative to the teams remaining, United have a huge mountain to climb against the holders. Will Bayern even allow United enough of the ball to do anything with it?
