The UEFA Champions League is down to eight now that Bayern Munich and Barcelona sealed their customary places amongst the final octet.

There are three outfits from La Liga, two from the Premier League, two more from Serie A, and one from the Bundesliga.

While UEFA would surely like to save as much drama as possible for the final -- Manchester City vs. Barcelona comes to mind -- there’s a chance for four dream ties in the next two rounds, which will be drawn Friday morning.

What would be the dream draw? Well, the following would sure be fun...

-- Barcelona vs. Real Madrid -- No explanation needed

-- Roma vs. Juventus -- All Italian tie

-- Manchester City vs. Bayern Munich -- Pep, meet Jupp.

-- Sevilla vs. Liverpool -- 2016 Europa League final rematch
