Maybe an El Clasico, or a Bayern Munich vs Borussia Dortmund clash along with a Chelsea vs Manchester United encounter - all of those matches could well become reality as the Champions League quarterfinal draw in Nyon takes centre-stage on Friday.

With Man United and Borussia Dortmund joining Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona and PSG on Wednesday, it is the first time in the Champions League era that all the winners of their respective groups have made it to the last eight.

The round-of-16 draw did not allow teams from the same countries and teams from the same groups to take on each other; but come Friday, there will be no such restrictions, opening up the possibility of a few mouthwatering clashes.

"It's a tough competition but I think we showed Manchester United is still alive, even though we lost a few days ago against Liverpool," United left-back Patrice Evra told MUTV after his team's incredibly 3-2 aggregate victory over Olympiakos.

"We have fought back. Now, let's see. We'll take any team. When we play with that spirit we can do something big."

Former United player and current PSG manager Laurent Blanc revealed he would love a crack at his old club in the quarterfinals.

"It would be nice to face Manchester," said Blanc, whose PSG side waltzed past Bayer Leverkusen in the last 16. "Their qualification I am sincerely pleased for because they live in difficult moments, they were able to re-group and there should certainly be an amazing atmosphere.

"It would make me happy to visit Old Trafford as it would make me happy to visit other stadia."

One side that all teams will want to avoid is European champions Bayern Munich, who are unstoppable in the Bundesliga at the moment, and the favourites to go on and defend their Champions League title.

Bayern winger Arjen Robben, who extended his stay at the Allianz Arena until 2017 earlier this week, cannot wait to find out who their opponents are going to be.

"There are eight top teams in the hat so there will be four top games," Robben told the club's official website. "Whatever happens, happens. I'm just looking forward to the two matches."

"[We have to] concentrate on our own performance and not on the other teams," added Robben's teammate Toni Kroos. "We have to play with bags of confidence and then we won't need to worry about the other seven."

The quarterfinals are scheduled for 1/2 April and 8/9 April.

The Europa League draw will follow the Champions League draw, with the eight teams in the pot being -- Juventus, Porto, Benfica, AZ Alkmaar, Valencia, Sevilla, Lyon and Basel.
