Champions League draw: When is the UCL quarter-final draw? Liverpool, Chelsea, Man City


Champions League action returns this week, with the second leg of the Round of 16 ties. After all of the matches have finished, the quarter-final draw will be taking place. But fans will have to wait a couple of weeks for the final draw to be made.

The Champions League Round of 16 first legs took place last month, in the middle of February.

The second legs will be kicking off from this week, with Juventus’ match against Porto, and Borussia Dortmund’s tie against Sevilla, the first to get underway.

Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Chelsea will all have to wait until next week for their second-leg matches.

All three of the Premier League sides have a good chance of progressing to the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

How will the draw work?

There won’t be any seedings or country protection for the quarter-finals of the Champions League.

That means any team can play against anyone else in the competition, regardless of whether they play their domestic football in the same league.

All eight teams will be drawn one-by-one to reveal the four fixtures, similar to an FA Cup or Carabao Cup draw.

Teams drawn first in each fixture will be hosting the first legs.

The draw will immediately be followed by the semi-final draw, so teams will have an accurate picture of their route to the final.

Barcelona face an uphill battle to reach the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, after losing 4-1 at home to PSG.

Real Madrid left it late to beat 10-man Atalanta 1-0 in Italy.

Manchester City scored two away goals without reply against Monchengladbach, as Pep Guardiola takes the advantage back to the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool beat RB Leipzig 2-0 away from home in the first leg, while Chelsea produced a stunning display in Spain to beat Atletico Madrid 1-0.
