The balls are out of the pots and in reward for seeing off Sevilla in the last 16, Leicester City will be facing further, stiffer Spanish competition in the quarter-finals of the Champions League – namely, Atletico Madrid.

Speaking of, the draw has proffered forth a tantalising smorgasbord of stellar clashes, with Bayern Munich pitted against Real Madrid and Juventus set to do battle with Barcelona.
