Bayern Munich are taking on holders Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

The German side are flying high in the Bundesliga, but they are looking for their first European title since they won in 2013.

Bayern’s Coach Carlo Ancelotti was in charge of Madrid when they won their tenth European Cup in 2014.

His assistant then was Zinédine Zidane, who is now managing the Spanish giants.

Real’s Galacticos trained at the Allianz Arena, where Cristiano Ronaldo and his team will be hoping for goals to take back to the Bernabéu for the return leg.

This is the 23rd meeting between the two sides, the most-played fixture in the Uefa club competition.

Champions of England Leicester City are taking on Atletico Madrid in the Spanish Capital in a huge night for the Foxes.

Borussia Dortmund’s rescheduled match against Monaco will kick off at 6.45pm local time, after their tie was cancelled following explosions near the team bus.
