Nyon - Defending champions Bayern Munich drew Manchester United in a repeat of the classic 1999 Champions League final as a star-studded quarter-final draw was made in Nyon on Friday.

Four-time champions Barcelona will play the first leg at the Nou Camp against La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid in an all-Spanish blockbuster while Chelsea tackle Paris Saint-Germain with the first leg in the French capital.

Real Madrid continue their quest for a record-extending 10th European Cup against 2013 finalists Borussia Dortmund.

Runaway Bundesliga leaders Bayern will relish the chance of taking on a United side that snatched a 2-1 victory from the jaws of defeat in the 1999 Barcelona-hosted final.

United meanwhile have seen a stuttering season under new coach David Moyes burst into life earlier this week when they defeated Olympiakos 3-0 to set up the Bayern match.

With United 12 points behind Manchester City and the fourth and final Champions League spot in the Premier League, winning the competition maybe their most realistic chance of qualifying as winners.

The first leg will be played at Old Trafford.

Atletico are one point ahead of Barcelona in La Liga with Real Madrid a further three clear at the top of the Spanish table.

First leg matches will be played April 1/2 with the return fixtures slated for April 8/9 before the draw for the semi-finals on April 11.

The semi-finals will take place on April 22/23 and 29/30.

The final will be played at Benfica's Stadium of Light on Saturday May 24.
Quarter-final draw:

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund
Paris St Germain v Chelsea
Manchester United v Bayern Munich

The first leg tie is set for April 1 and the return fixture eight days later with the final scheduled for May 24 in Lisbon.
