A potential El Clasico final awaits

If you're reading this, you're most likely a Manchester United supporter. Because of that, perhaps United's disappointing form in Europe this season results in you not caring about the UEFA Champions League draw that just occurred in Nyon for the final eight participants. However, if you are a massive football fan, chances are that you are still interested. For the first time since the current format of the competition (15 years), clubs from seven different nations are represented amongst the final eight. Here is the draw:



* APOEL vs. Real Madrid

* Olympique Marseille vs. Bayern Munich

* Benfica vs. Chelsea FC

* Milan vs FC Barcelona

The winners of the APOEL/Real Madrid face the winners of Marseille/Bayern in one semi-final while the winners of Benfica/Chelsea face the winners of Milan/Barca in the other semi-final. Thus, a potential El Clasico final at the Allianz Arena in Munich awaits the world.

Here are the current odds as to who will lift the European Cup this season:

* Barcelona 11/10

* Real Madrid 15/8

* Bayern Munich 11/2

* Chelsea 11/1

* Milan 20/1

* Benfica 50/1

* Marseille 80/1

* APOEL 200/1
