The Champions League semifinals are set. And even if they don't involve Barcelona, they are still must-watch.

UEFA took the time on Friday to put together the four remaining teams in the European Cup and draw them in two fantastic, exciting semifinal matchups with incredible story lines. First, Manchester City, who knocked out Paris Saint-Germain in the Round of 16, will play their first ever semifinal against Spanish giants Real Madrid, who defeated Wolfsburg in the last eight.

And then, Pep Guardiola's road to Milan could not go through a tougher opponent. Bayern Munich will face Atlético Madrid, who just eliminated the defending champions Barcelona in a sensational quarterfinal. Man City and Atlético will host the first leg on April 26/27, with Madrid and Bayern playing the deciding game in their stadiums on May 3/4.

There are great possibilites here: Real and Atlético could play a second Final in three years, with Simeone's men hoping to avenge that painful loss in Lisbon in 2014. Pep Guardiola could finish his Bayern career with a Final against his next managerial assignment, the Citizens. Or, he could win his third European Cup against his biggest rival. Finally, the dangerous underdogs, City and Atleti, could shock the world and play the most unexpected final in recent years.

What do you think of the games, Blaugranes? Who do you think got the luckiest draw? And who's reaching the Final?
