Makaay vs Kaka (Champions league Quarters)

champstrophy-copy.jpgAC Milan have been paired with fellow European heavyweights FC Bayern M√ľnich in the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals after today’s draw in Athens, host city of this season’s final.

Milan and Bayern met most recently in the first knockout round of last year’s competition when the Italian side won 5-2 on aggregate.

The other matches see PSV Eindhoven and Liverpool FC pitted together once more following their group-stage games in the autumn, while AS Roma face Manchester United FC, and Chelsea FC take on Valencia CF. The ties will be played on 3/4 April and 10/11 April.

If Chelsea and Liverpool advance, they will take part in a repeat of the 2005 all-English semi-final won by the Reds.

The final will be staged at the Olympic Stadium on 23 May.
