David Moyes and Pep Guardiola, Champions League opponents

Spain are guaranteed one team in the semi-final after Barcelona were drawn against Atletico Madrid while, in a repeat of one of last season’s semi-finals, Real Madrid will face Borussia Dortmund.

The most eye-catching contest is a repeat of the 1999 final, with Pep Guardiola's all-conquering Bayern, who could win the Bundesliga this weekend, facing a Manchester United side who are seventh in the Premier League and struggling for form under David Moyes.

"Our staff are very thorough and will have done their homework and will be prepared for Bayern," said Manchester United club secretary John Alexander.

"If we can keep them quiet in the first leg and get an advantage then we're more than capable of stealing an away goal."

Bayern disposed of Arsenal in the previous round while United overturned a 2-0 deficit to beat Olympiacos 3-2 on aggregate.

Chelsea's match with French table-toppers PSG sees Jose Mourinho come up against one of his former players at Inter, and arguably the best centre-forward in football, in Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The first legs of the ties are set to be played on April 1-2 with the return legs on April 8-9, with this year's final to be held at Benfica's Estadio da Luz in Lisbon on May 24.

Bayern Munich are favourites to retain their crown at 2-1, with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona priced at 4-1.

    Bell steers England to victory, hosts take 2-1 Ashes lead

    Ian Bell guided England to an eight-wicket victory over Australia in the third test at Edgbaston on Friday to put the hosts 2-1 up in the series with two matches to play. Bell (65 not out) and Joe Root, with an unbeaten 38, anchored the chase after England were set to 121 to win on the third day at Edgbaston where a dominant performance banished memories of a heavy defeat at Lord's. England lost Alastair Cook (7) and Adam Lyth (12) to set a few nerves on edge but Bell, dropped on 20 by Australia captain Michael Clarke, made his second 50 of the match to spark raucous celebrations after Root hit the winning runs.

    No snow no problem as China's financial might lands 2022 Games

    The snow will be fake, but the very real financial muscle China boasts proved decisive on Friday when Beijing won the right to host the 2022 Winter Olympics. Games officials meeting in Kuala Lumpur voted for the Chinese capital over the lure of a winter wonderland offering from Kazakhstan's Almaty, in a clear sign that the International Olympic Committee is craving solidity and security after a series of problems and headaches. While Rio scrambles to make up lost time in its building for the 2016 Olympics, and Tokyo is embroiled in a stadium drama the allure of a megacity with a cast-iron financial guarantee proved irresistible.
