Pepp  Guardiola’s Bayern have been drawn to ignite their UEFA champions League rival with Spanish teams as they face Atletico Madrid in the last four of the competition.

After defeating Benfica on 3-2 aggregate on Wednesday, the German side is on their way to eyeing the sixth European cup as they battle Diego Simeone’s men.

However, for Atletico Madrid, reaching this stage makes their second in recent time.

Elsewhere, Real Madrid look confident of going beyond La Decima as they head against England’s lone survivor- Manchester.

However, this feat is the first for Manchester  City in the history of the club as they have never reached the champions League semifinals before this time.

City will take confidence from its elimination of Paris Saint-Germain in the quarterfinals, and manager Manuel Pellegrini will be eager to take his team into the final with Pep Guardiola due to replace him at the end of the season.

This could only be possible if due strategy is ensured to stop in-form Christiano Ronaldo.

The two sides have met twice in the Champions League before, coming up against each other in the group stages during the 2012-13 season.
