FC Barcelona will meet AC MIlan in the 2011-12 Champions League Quarter Final. The first leg of the tie will be held on the 28th of March at San Siro and the return leg will be held at Camp Nou on 3rd of April. It is second time Barcelona is drawn to meet the defending Serie A Champions. We have already met in the group stages this year, with we winning one match and drawing the other. For me, this is one tie I wanted to avoid as there is too much coincidence between Inter scenario a season ago. The best part of the draw is that we will play the second leg at home. But remembering that night in San Siro against inter, it now becomes paramount to play our heart out at San Siro this time around. Among the other draws, Real Madrid is the one who got one of the easiest draws. Our arch-rivals will play APOEL with the first leg taking place in Cyprus. The other Quarter Finals are Benfica vs Chelsea and Marseille vs Bayern Munich.

Not only the draws of Quarter Finals were made today at Nyon, but also the later stages of the Championship. The winner of Milan vs Barca match will meet the Winner of Chelsea vs Benfica. If we get past Milan, then Chelsea most probably would be the opponent, again the good news is that we will play the second leg at home. Real Madrid has to go through either Marseille or Bayern to reach the final in the semis, again they also play the second leg at home. So the dream final between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona remain a realistic possibility.

Meanwhile Barcelona will be without the service of Abidal, who will undergo Liver transplantation very soon. Wishing him a speedy recovery and hoping that he will be back to lift the cup at the Allianz Arena.
