FC Barcelona now know who they will face in the Champions League quarter finals. AS Roma will be their opponents with the first leg at Camp Nou on Wednesday 4 April and the second leg at the Stadio Olimpico on Tuesday 10 April,

The rest of the draw is:

Sevilla v Bayern Munich

Juventus v Real Madrid

Liverpool v Manchester City

Barça return to Rome, the city where they won the trophy in 2009 thanks to a 2-0 win over Manchester United. It will be the first knock out tie between the two clubs as their previous meetings have all come in the group stages of the competition, most recently in the 2015/16 season.

The tie against the Serie A side will come after Barça’s visit to Sevilla (Saturday 31 March, 8.45pm CET) in the league and then Leganés at home, a fixture which will be sandwiched between the two legs of the Champions League quarter-final tie.

Curiously enough, AS Roma received more than 34,000 votes in a poll carried out on preferred opponents in the Champions League on the Club website. The Italians received 21% of the vote, followed by Liverpool (19%) and Real Madrid (18%).
