Leicester City have been drawn against Spanish side Atletico Madrid in their maiden European Champions League quarter-final.

The English Premier League champions progressed to the last eight by beating Spanish title-chasers Sevilla 3-2 on aggregate.

Leicester will play the first leg against last year’s beaten finalists away from home on April 11 or 12, with the return leg on April 18 or 19.

In the other pairings, title-holders Real Madrid face Bayern Munich, while FC Barcelona take on Juventus and Borussia Dortmund play Monaco.

Atletico are the only side left in the quarter-finals who Leicester have previously played, but the Foxes have not beaten the Spaniards in their four previous meetings.

Diego Simeone’s side were beaten by neighbours Real Madrid on penalty kicks in last season’s UEFA Champions League final.

The 2014 Spanish champions are fourth in La Liga this season, five points adrift of third-placed Sevilla.
