Thierry Henry will face his former club in what promises to be the tie of the round after Arsenal were drawn against European champions Barcelona in the Champions League quarter-finals.

The Gunners were drawn first in the tie which means Barcelona will have the perceived advantage of playing the second leg in front of a home crowd.

Manchester United meet Bayern Munich for the first time in the Champions League since their smash and grab victory in the 1999 final.

United will make the trip to Munich for the first leg with Old Trafford hosting the second leg a week later.

Lyon will host Laurent Blanc's Ligue 1 leaders Bordeaux in the first leg of their quarter-final. The winners of the all-France clash can look forward to a semi-final date with either United or Bayern.

Jose Mourinho’s Inter Milan face a daunting quarter-final second leg trip to Moscow to face CSKA. If victorious the former Chelsea manager's side will meet either Arsenal or Barcelona in the semi-final.
