Bayern(GER) v Barcelona(ESP)
Dortmund(GER) v Real Madrid(ESP)
FC Bayern München and FC Barcelona met in the quarter-finals four seasons ago. Barça prevailed and won the competition; they also met in the 1998/99 group stage with Bayern winning 2-1 at the Camp Nou – they would lose at the same venue in the final that season by the same scoreline in heartbreaking style.
Real Madrid CF and Borussia Dortmund met in this season’s group stage with the German side taking four points off their rivals in Group D. Madrid won their 1998 semi-final encounter, though, knocking the then defending champions out. Nuri Şahin started his career with Dortmund, but left for Madrid only to be loaned back to the Schwarzgelben.
