What are your first-leg predictions?

The eight remaining contenders resume their campaigns in this week's quarter-final first legs – what are your predictions for how the games will pan out?

The UEFA Champions League quarter-finals commence this week and UEFA.com wants to know your predictions.

FC Bayern München and Paris Saint-Germain FC are Tuesday's hosts, with the Bundesliga champions-elect welcoming Juventus and Carlo Ancelotti's side facing FC Barcelona. Bayern, runners-up twice in the past three seasons, have bounced back from last term's showpiece defeat on home soil in impressive fashion – will the Bianconeri prove a step too far or can the Bavarians send off Jupp Heynckes in style?

Zlatan Ibrahimović is available for PSG

PSG, meanwhile, have been buoyed by the news that talisman Zlatan Ibrahimović's suspension has been reduced. Prolific in his debut campaign for the Parisian outfit, could the Swedish international have a significant say against his former club? PSG, unbeaten at home in Europe for more than six years, will be hopeful of establishing a first-leg foothold in the tie.

On Wednesday, Málaga CF take on Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid CF entertain Galatasaray AŞ in a Spanish double bill. Málaga's maiden appearance in the competition could scarcely have gone better, but will they be undone by the superior pedigree of the 1997 winners?

Madrid, meanwhile, continue their quest for a tenth continental crown against the team who caused a scare at this stage 12 years ago. Will lightning strike twice or will José Mourinho inch closer to becoming only the second coach to lift three European Cups?

Let us know how you see this week's first legs panning out using the comment box below.
