AS Roma manager Jose Mourinho has already revealed who he wants to win in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final between his former sides Chelsea and Real Madrid.
Los Blancos have already overcame one Premier League side this year, after defeating Liverpool 5-2 over two legs in the round of 16.
Carlo Ancelotti's charges will now face the Blues in the last eight for third season in a row, although the Spaniards came out on top in last season's tie.

Mourinho is no stranger to both clubs, having enjoyed great success at Stamford Bridge after winning three Premier League titles while he also won LaLiga and Copa del Rey with Los Blancos.
However, the Roma tactician has backed the defending champions to overcome the English giants in the quarter-finals.
“There is a club that is close to my heart and there is a manager who is my friend," Mourinho said, as per TalkSPORT.
“Real Madrid are great and Carlo Ancelotti is great!
“Hopefully they will go on in this way to win the final.”
Los Blancos defeated Chelsea 6-3 on aggregate in last season's quarter-final tie en-route to winning their 13th Champions League.
