[UCL] Quarter-final Draw

Inter have been drawn against CSKA Moscow in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

UEFA Champions League 2010The Nerazzurri won 1-0 at Chelsea on Tuesday to seal a 3-1 aggregate success in the last 16 and will be strong favourites to progress to a semi-final clash against either Arsenal or Barcelona.

The first leg will take place at the San Siro on March 31 with Jose Mourinho's side travelling to the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow for the return game on April 6.

CSKA, who are in the last eight of the competition for the first time in their history, edged out German champions Wolfsburg and came close to beating Manchester United in the group stage of this year's tournament before knocking out Sevilla in the last 16 stage.

Inter last met the Russian outfit in 2007 when they were drawn together in the group stages, with the Serie A champions winning both matches.

In the other half of today's draw, Manchester United go head-to-head with Bayern Munich in a repeat of the 1999 final, while there's an all-French tie as Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux and Lyon meet.

The semi-finals are scheduled for April 20/21 and 27/28, with the final set to take place at Madrid's Estadio Santiago Bernabuu on May 22.
