Today, there shall be a Champions League draw. It involves eight teams, and one of those just so happens to be Juventus. Some people might not want it that way, but Juve find themselves in this spot because their wild and heart attack-inducing two-legged win over Tottenham. Now, we get to see who will cause us to have more heart palpitations.
There are decent outcomes to be had out there. There are not-so-decent outcomes to be had out there. Seven possibilities are out there and nobody will know until we see a bunch of video montages and then, after too much waiting, hear Juventus’ name called.
For a quick refresher course, these are the eight teams that will be taking part in the Champions League quarterfinals come the first two weeks of next month.
- Real Madrid
- Bayern Munich
- Manchester City
- AS Roma
Whoooooooooooooo ya got, friends?

So, who will it be in the @ChampionsLeague quarter-finals? #TOGETHER pic.twitter.com/4eDQTD3MYx
There are no country-on-country restrictions being put into place in the knockout rounds. None of that. Real Madrid could play Barcelona. Manchester City could play Liverpool. And, if there’s some kind of Italy-on-Italy schenanigans going on today, there could very well be a Juventus against Roma card being drawn.
There are seven possibilities, but only one final outcome for Juventus. We shall watch and, at some point, actually find out of will be the next European opponent for the current Serie A leaders. Sounds fun, doesn’t it? (Maybe.)
