Manchester City will face Paris Saint-Germain in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
City avoided a showdown with their soon-to-be manager Pep Guardiola and his Bayern Munich side - the Germans face Benfica.
Instead City will face Zlatan Ibrahimovic and his PSG team-mates, who have already been crowned as French champions this season.
PSG knocked out Chelsea in the last 16. City and PSG have met just once before, playing out a goalless draw in Manchester during the group stages of the 2008/09 UEFA Cup.
City boss Manuel Pellegrini said: "It is a difficult draw as always. When you are in the eight best teams of Europe, always it is a difficult draw.
"I have said that in this moment I think Barcelona is the team that makes the difference, all the other teams are the same. It is always a difficult game. You can't expect less.
"You never know what is an easy draw. We are in the eight best teams, maybe one team can have less of a 'name' than another, but if they are in the same stage it is because they deserve it, they have eliminated important teams. You can't have an easy draw."
Holders Barcelona - who dumped Arsenal out 5-1 on aggregate - will face fellow Spaniards Atletico Madrid, runners-up two seasons ago.
Barca, bidding to become the first team to win the Champions League two seasons in a row, will get the chance to avenge their defeat at the same stage two years ago when Atletico won 1-0 at home after a 1-1 away draw.
But Barcelona, the five-time champions, have won their last six meetings with Atletico. The first leg will be played at the Nou Camp, with the return at the Vicente Calderon.
Ten-times champions Real Madrid, who overcame Roma to get through to the last eight, were pitted against German side VfL Wolfsburg.
Champions League quarter-final draw:
VfL Wolfsburg v Real Madrid
Bayern Munich v Benfica
Barcelona v Atletico Madrid
Paris Saint-Germain v Manchester City
First legs will be played April 5/6 and return legs April 12/13.
