It doesn't get a heck of a lot better than this. The Champions League is down to just eight teams, and with the exception of maybe Leicester City, it's hard to say there isn't a deserving team in the bunch. Even the Foxes won the EPL last year and are now five matches away from perhaps winning the biggest club competition in the world as well.

Juventus vs. Barcelona – Tuesday, 2:45 p.m. ET ( FOX Sports 1 )

Barcelona hasn't been in the best form in recent weeks, and that's a big concern coming into a match like this one on the road. Remember what happened the last time the Catalan side went on the road in the UCL? The Dragons were behind 4-0 heading home from Paris. Juventus is a better team than PSG is, but we still sincerely doubt Barca is going to go down this badly a second time, particularly after that remarkable comeback against the Parisians. This is a really, really tall task for the Old Lady.

Borussia Dortmund vs. AS Monaco – Tuesday, 2:45 p.m. ET ( FOX Sports 2 )

AS Monaco's big comeback against Manchester City was something else. Radamel Falcao was absolutely on point over the course of those two legs, and he's going to have to be big to go on the road and beat a very good BVB squad. Borussia Dortmund hasn't struggled the way that this is match figures to go against a French team that has a real chance to actually win this tournament. Monaco is en route to winning Ligue 1, ending the reign of mighty PSG along the way. This was no small feat, and this team isn't a one-trick pony. Monaco is a live dog for sure on the road.

Atletico Madrid vs. Leicester City – Wednesday, 2:45 p.m. ET ( FOX Sports 2 )

This is where we're really going to get a taste of what this Leicester City team is really made of. The Foxes have been in good form of late, and Gigi Buffon famously said right after they qualified that they were the last team he wanted Juventus to draw. This though, is a really, really tough draw for the 2015-16 EPL champs. The problem hasn't been the offense for Craig Shakespeare's side. The big problem comes on the defensive side of the pitch, especially after allowing four goals to Everton and blowing a 2-1 lead in a 4-2 defeat.

Atletico Madrid isn't the team you want to be struggling against defensively. Just look at what happened to Bayer Leverkusen. The German side gave up four goals at home in the first leg against the Atleti, and from that point on, it was absolutely over. There was no way Atletico Madrid was giving up three goals in the return leg back at home.

Bayern Munich vs. Real Madrid – Wednesday, 2:45 p.m. ET ( FOX Sports 1 )

Real Madrid and Bayern Munich really have it tough in this one having to play against each other, and it's a darn shame that one of these teams has to go out here in the last eight. What more can be said about just how good Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are? Los Blancos are running away from La Liga against some really good clubs, while Bayern Munich has put away the rest of the Bundesliga. Had this been the final of this tourney, we wouldn't be complaining. To get 180 minutes of this in April? That's just a treat. Enjoy.
