Having overcome Juventus in a dramatic come back in midweek five-time European champions Bayern Munich will have been relieved to have drawn Portugal’s Benfica.
Bayern winger Franck Ribéry warned there was no room for complacency even if the Germans, led by Pep Guardiola in his last season before a switch to Manchester City, are unlikely to lose any sleep over the pair up.
“We will have to remain very focussed, it’s the quarter-finals, you don’t take these matches lightly. After the group games you never have an easy match,” said the Frenchman.
“We need a good result in the first game at home. But it’s a great draw for us,” he said.
Zinedine Zidane’s ten-time winners Real Madrid and the Champions League’s runaway top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo (13 goals), drew Germans Wolfsburg, with the added comfort of playing at home in the second leg against the quarter-final débutants.
