Champions League Draw LIVE! Chelsea and Man City learn quarter-final opponents
Chelsea and Manchester City will learn their fate when this morning’s Champions League quarter-final and semi-final draws take place. They are the only Premier League representatives to have made it to the last eight after Liverpool and Tottenham fell to Real Madrid and AC Milan respectively.
A rousing win over Borussia Dortmund is likely to have saved Graham Potter’s job and sparked an encouraging upturn in form at Stamford Bridge, while Erling Haaland’s record-breaking exploits against RB Leipzig have raised hopes for City finally ending their long wait for European glory. Nothing will stop the English giants from pairing in a totally open draw today with no restrictions.
Further potential endurance tests await, not least from defending champions Madrid. Runaway Serie A leaders Napoli also pose a serious threat after brushing Eintracht Frankfurt aside, while Bayern Munich lurk as ever after beating Paris Saint-Germain in a heavyweight round of 16 showdown. The likes of Inter Milan and Benfica shouldn’t be taken lightly either after victories over Porto and Club Brugge. Follow the Champions League Quarter-Finals draw live below!
Chelsea penetrate deep into Europe?
Chelsea are in the draw this morning, which bodes well for Graham Potter and his job at Stamford Bridge
The Blues went into the Round of 16 against Borussia Dortmund with incredibly low confidence, but a strong performance at home in the second leg did the job to ease the pressure on the Blues coach.
It came as a surprise when they went all the way to win the Champions League in 2021 but to do it this time would be something different!
When are the quarterfinals played?
The first legs of the quarter-finals are scheduled for 11./12. Scheduled for April, the second leg a week later, on 18/19. April.
For those who are full of optimism this morning, the Champions League final will take place in Istanbul on June 10th. You might wait to book those flights…

It’s a free for all!
