Champions League draw: When do Liverpool find out quarter-final opponents?

Liverpool are into the Champions League quarter-finals for the fourth time in the last five seasons, having beaten Inter Milan 2-1 on aggregate in the last-16.

Attention now turns to when the Reds will find out their last-eight opponents, but it’s quite a wait until the draw, which takes place a week on Friday – on March 18.

The draw, at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, is at 11am (GMT) and will draw both the quarter-finals and semi-finals.

Who can Liverpool face?

There is no country protection in the quarters onwards, meaning a potential meeting with a fellow English side.

Chelsea hold a lead from their first leg encounter, while the three other ties are all level after the first leg.

The three other qualified teams so far are Bayern Munich, Man City and Real Madrid.

Bayern Munich
Man City
Real Madrid

Chelsea / Lille
Villarreal / Juventus
Benfica / Ajax
Atletico Madrid / Man United

When are the quarter-finals?

The two ties fall on either side of the meeting with Man City at the Etihad on April 10. Drawing City would mean three games in a row against Pep Guardiola’s side… and four in a row if we also drew them in the FA Cup semi-finals!

The first legs are April 5/6.
The second legs are April 12/13.

And the semi-finals?

The road to Paris continues in late April – early May.

First legs: April 26/27
Second legs: May 3/4
