Good draw for Madrid.

Real Madrid will play Wolfsburg in the Champions League Quarterfinals.

This is a golden opportunity for Real Madrid to advance to the Semifinals, but Wolfsburg will also be dangerous with players like Draxler and Ricardo Rodríguez. The second leg will be played in the Bernabéu.

Zidane and his men must stay focused in the task ahead now that they don't have a chance of winning the Liga BBVA title. The French manager will be able to rotate his squad to keep his players fresh and that will be something very valuable. Zidane should also try to recover James Rodríguez. The Colombian star is a crucial player for Madrid if Los Blancos want to win the European competition and his form throughout the entire campaign has been overly disappointing. If his form stays that way, he might even leave Real in the summer. He has a nice chance to turn things around in this next round.

Champions League Quarterfinals:

-Wolfsburg - Real Madrid

-Bayern - Benfica

-Barcelona - Atlético

-PSG - Manchester City
