There are some inconvenient matches in between but Marca has already pronounced that Real will meet Barca in El Clasico in Munich. Barca meet the winners of Chelsea vs Benfica while Real await either Bayern or Marseille.
See, these two clubs have already progressed to the semi-finals. Milan might as well take a bow and exit off stage. Apoel shouldn’t even bother showing up at this late stage.
At this point the CL and the Europa League looks to be the Liga’s for the taking.
Real Madrid or Barca are the abortive favourites to win Europe’s top prize while there are three Liga sides in the last eight of the Europa League as Atletico take on Hannover 96, Valencia meet AZ Alkmaar, Athletic battle Schalke, with only Metalist and Sporting Lisbon featuring in a match not featuring a Liga side.
