Champions League quarter final draw: build up?

Fancy tickets for the Europa League final? They go on general sale Friday 17.03 from 12:00 CET. 

Here's how the bookies see the last eight remaining sides in the competition. 

With the draw almost upon us, we reflect on some of the news surrounding the last few weeks:

- Bayern Munich demolished Arsenal but one of their midfielders - remembered fondly at Madrid, Liverpool and at Real Sociedad - confirmed he is to hang up his boots at the end of this campaign. Can he bow out with the Champions League trophy?

- Leicester City made the headlines around the world last year as the most unlikely of Premier League champions. As the only English side left in the competition, could they really do a fairytale double?

- Atlético Madrid kept the Spanish dominance of the latter stages of the Champions League in tact. Three teams into this year's quarters from Spain, 15 times in the last five seasons.

- Monaco have been somewhat of a revelation this season and few had tipped them to make the quarter finals. What a tie against City and this young lad is getting a lot of attention.
