We will play Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of this season’s Champions League with the first leg away from home.

The draw was made at UEFA headquarters in Switzerland on Friday morning UK time, and paired us with the French champions whom we played in the group stage in 2004/05 when we won 3-0 away in the Parc de Princes in Jose Mourinho’s first Champions League game in charge of Chelsea. John Terry and Didier Drogba with a brace were the scorers.

We were already guaranteed top spot before the home game which ended 0-0 draw.

The current PSG side is managed by Laurent Blanc and has former Chelsea defender Alex at the back. Lucas Moura, Edinson Cavani and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is second top scorer in this season’s Champions League with 10 goals, are other well-known players.

After topping their qualification group, PSG beat Bayer Leverkusen 4-0 at home and 2-1 away in the Round of 16.

The first leg of the quarter-final will be played on 1 or 2 April and the second leg on 8 or 9 April, with news of the exact dates to follow.

The full draw is:

Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Real Madrid v Borussia Dortmund
Paris St-Germain v Chelsea
Manchester United v Bayern Munich
