Well, that's all from our LIVE coverage of the Champions League and Europa League draws.

Thanks for joining me, Tom McKeown, for all the news and reaction this morning. We've seen some fascinating fixtures thrown up - I don't know about you, but I can't wait for the semi-finals!

Goodbye for now!

So, we know the fate of the final four now, but who will lift the trophy in Lisbon in six weeks' time?

Goal takes a look at the Champions League contenders, and we think it's Bayern Munich who are favourites, with Real Madrid the outsiders.

Manuel Neuer is hoping for a repeat of their Madrid success when they travel to the Bernabeu once more. Bayern Munich were victorious on penalties in the same stage in 2012 when they eventually lost to Chelsea.

"I am looking forward to play again at the Bernabeu," he said. "I have many positive memories when I think about that stadium. It was crazy to win the second leg of the semi-final two years ago by penalties.

"And I am curious about the mood in Madrid because Real and Atletico will play at home first. There will be supporters of all four semi-finalists in the city on Tuesday and Wednesday. It will surely be a big party."
12:29 BST

Carlo Ancelotti is taking the pressure off his Real Madrid side, saying Bayern Munich are the favourites, but hopes to give Pep Guardiola's men a real test.

"Bayern are favourites, but it's not easy to face Real Madrid," he said.

"It will be hard, but we have a chance to progress. The match is so equal, because both teams play the same style".

"Guardiola has a lot of experience and it will be hard."
