Some exciting matches are to be played this week in the Champions League as the eagerly-anticipated quarter-final first legs get underway.

Bayern Munich v Juventus

Juventus will travel to Munich for the first leg of the quarter-final tie. This is certainly the most anticipated match of the week and it's very hard to pick favourites. 

Bayern have been invincible at home this season, but Antonio Conte's side will be hopeful due to the fact that Bayern lost 2-0 to Arsenal just a few weeks ago. Bayern, on the other hand, are ready to play after they annihilated Hamburg 9-2 at the weekend. 

Both teams are league leaders in their respective countries and are well-equipped for the battle. 

Paris Saint-German v Barcelona

We are expecting another exciting match as Barcelona travel to Paris for this first leg. 

Barcelona are favourites but PSG have been good this season and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham's experience we might just see an upset.

The Catalan giants, on the other hand, are in great shape with the Argentine magician Lionel Messi back in form.

Malaga v Borussia Dortmund

The German champions will travel to Spain to face the underdogs Malaga.

Although many consider Dortmund to be the favourites, we cannot underestimate Malaga since they beat Porto to reach this stage. 

Mario Gotze will have most eyes glued to him and is expected to perform well this week, but it should be noted that Malaga are at home, so it definitely won't be an easy task for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Real Madrid v Galatasaray

Another exciting match awaits us as the La Liga champions host the Turkish giants.

Real Madrid are hot favourites, not only for this tie but also for the tournament, after beating Manchester United in the Round of 16, but Galatasaray cannot be taken lightly.

They have key players like Didier Drogba, Wesley Sneijder and Burak Yilmaz, who is the joint leading goalscorer in the Champions League this season. Therefore we expect a hard-fought battle.

We hope that all the matches live up to the hype and provide football fans with a week of top quality football.
