Kishen Patel: PSG vs Barcelona will be a great game too since Ibrahimovic will be up against his former employers, however, he will be only eligible to play the second leg at Camp Nou. Ibra's absence could be a big blow and could lead to the tie being decided in the first leg itself.

Brendon Netto says: PSG vs Barcelona is going to be another intriguing encounter. The factor for me is that PSG's star man, Zlatan Ibrahimovic is suspended for the home leg so that could make a big difference. They lack a focal point in attack when he's not around and they do rely on him heavily to score goals. Costly suspension to say the least.

Kishen Patel opines: This draw is a blessing for Real Madrid. They have managed to evade the strongest opponents and could be set to feature in the final! They have a chance to get back at Dortmund and make up for their performance in the group stage. Galatasaray cannot be underestimated but I think Real Madrid won't have problems dealing with the Turkish giants especially they have already faced some of the toughest teams like Man City, Dortmund and Man Utd. Galatasaray would be a breather for Real.
