Just eight teams remain in this season’s Champions League and they will discover who they will play in the quarter-finals on Friday.

Predictably there are some of the biggest names in European football, but a couple of underdogs have scrapped their way into the quarters, with Benfica and Villarreal upsetting the odds in the last 16 stage to beat Ajax and Juventus respectively.

They may well be hoping to draw each other in the last eight and avoid the big beasts left in the Champions League, all of which come from Spain, England and Germany.

When is the Champions League quarter-finals draw?

The draw will take place Friday, March 18 at 11am UK time, in Nyon, Switzerland.

The first legs of the quarter-finals will be played on 5 and 6 April, with the second legs played on 12 and 13 April.

When is the semi-finals draw?

The semi-final draw is done immediately after the quarter-final draws, so quarter-finalists will know their two potential opponents if they win their next tie.

The first legs of the semi-finals are played on 26 and 27 April and second on 3 and 4 May.
