And so it came to pass, following Manchester United`s capitulation in the Allianz Arena, last night, Chelsea are (once again) England`s last representatives in Europe this season.

Our record of making 7 appearances in the last 11 seasons is something that should be shouted from the roof-tops, even more so when twice we`ve looked, after the first legs of quarter-finals, as if we were heading for the exit.

But, with the draw set to be made in Nyon, Switzerland, this Friday, in a draw that will, no doubt, go on for what will seem an eternity, who will be paired with?

Will it be Real Madrid, a side that goes into the pot having scored the most goals in the competition this season, a staggering 32, and a side bossed by somebody we know very well in Carlo Ancelotti?

Will it be our old friends Bayern Munich, the side who we beat in their own backyard in 2012 and a side who are now managed by Pep Guardiola, who out of the four bosses left in the competition has the highest win rate, a cool 62%?

Or will it be the rookies in the semi-finals, Atletico Madrid, who are in the semi-finals for the very first time and who have one of our players, Thibaut Courtois in their ranks plus a striker we are, reportedly, keen on signing, Diego Costa?
