Holders Manchester United, 2005 winners Liverpool, last year's runners-up Chelsea and 2006 finalists Arsenal all made it through to the quarter-finals.

They will be in next week's draw alongside Barcelona, Villarreal, Bayern Munich and Porto, with Italian representation conspicuous by its absence.

Gary Megson: "It should temper some of the expectations of a lot of Premier League teams.

"When you look at what we are playing against week in, week out, Real Madrid (against Liverpool) can't handle it, Inter Milan (against United) can't handle it.

"The Premier League is the strongest league by a street and when Liverpool play as they did the other day that is how we are playing against them all the time.

"If Madrid can't handle it that shows how difficult it is for the rest of us."
