Who will Chelsea meet in the Champions League quarter-finals? Possible opponents for Friday’s draw


Helsea will be confident of extending their run in the Champions League if they achieve a plum tie in Friday’s quarter-final draw.

A comeback win over Borussia Dortmund secured the Blues a place at the ceremony in Switzerland later this week, with six of the eight teams now confirmed.

The draw is completely open, there are no restrictions on playing against teams from the same country or group.

Therefore, a replay of the 2021 final against Manchester City is a possible result after Pep Guardiola’s side beat RB Leipzig in the second leg of the round of 16.

No other Premier League side are likely to make it to the last eight when Tottenham are beaten by AC Milan and Liverpool by Real Madrid.

Chelsea will value their chances against a Milan side they’ve beaten twice in the groups, while it would be a case of revenge against Real for shocking last season’s quarter-finals at the Bernabeu.

Inter Milan are also on top after beating Porto, although Chelsea have never beaten the Italians after their only knockout round encounter in 2010.

Bayern Munich is another team the Blues have a less than convincing history with, aside from their eventual triumph in 2012. Benfica plus a Napoli complete the draw.

Possible Chelsea opponents in the Champions League Quarter-Finals draw:

  • real Madrid
  • Naples
  • AC Milan
  • Bayern Munich
  • Benfica
  • Manchester City
  • Inter Milan

Ties will be played in the midweek of April 10th and April 17th.
