[UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE] Defending champion Barcelona will face English club Arsenal in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League. The marquee matchup will feature two of Europe's most entertaining teams, who both crushed their opponents to advance to the final eight. The second leg will also feature the return of Barca youth star Cesc Fabregas with the Gunners to the Nou Camp Stadium.

"We are two teams who don't shut up shop and play long ball soccer, and this series will be nice for the fans," said Barca sporting director Txiki Beguiristain. "It will be a good spectacle and we'll see if we are a little stronger than them. In any case, the best news is knowing that we will be playing the return leg at home. We are strong at home and we've shown that."

French clubs Bordeaux and Lyon were drawn against each other in a surprise.

Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud and Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulassaid they were disappointed with the draw even though it assures a French club will advance to the semifinals for the first time since 2004.

The other pairings: Manchester United-Bayern Munich and Inter Milan-CSKA Moscow.

In the Europa League, the quarterfinal draw consists of Fulham-Wolfsburg, Benfica-Liverpool, Hamburg-Standard Liege and Valencia-Atletico Madrid.
