Last season's finalists Bayern Munich face a tough clash with Serie A leaders Juventus in another huge fixture.

La Liga champions Real Madrid were rewarded for their victory over Manchester United with a tie against Turkish giants Galatasaray, while Malaga - who knocked out Porto - take on German champions Borussia Dortmund.

The four first legs will take place in March, with the second legs scheduled for April 9 and 10.

The draw for the semi-finals will be held on April 12, and the tournament concludes at Wembley Stadium on May 25.
