Paris Saint-Germain were drawn to play against Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals on Friday, while Monaco will face Juventus. Do PSG stand a chance against Messi, Neymar and Suarez?


Spanish giants Barcelona stand in the way of PSG after the two clubs were drawn to play each other in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

PSG will have hope after beating Barcelona 3-1 in the group stages of this year's competition, but with the likes of Lionel Messi, Neymar and Luis Suarez, the Spanish club will be clear favourites to qualify for the semis.

Laurent Blanc's PSG side will also have to do without talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic for the first leg of the tie which will be played at the Camp Nou.

PSG Will however be hoping to take revenge against the Catalan club who knocked them out at the same stage in 2013.  After drawing 2-2 at the Parc des Princes in Paris, the teams were tied 1-1 at the Camp Nou, meaning the French club were eliminated on away goals.

Elsewhere in the draw Monaco were paired with Juventus, and the clash of the round is a repeat of last year's final Real Madrid versus city rivals Atletico.

German giants Bayern Munich will play against Porto in the final pairing.

The first leg of the quarter finals will be played on April 14/15 with the return matches on April 21/22.
