The Champions League quarter-final draw has been made with Real Madrid set to face off against Chelsea and Manchester City squaring off against Atletico Madrid. The other two ties are Benfica vs Liverpool and Villarreal vs Bayern Munich.
We also learned all eight sides’ potential path to the final at the Stade de France with the composition of the semi-final ties also being decided.
In the last-four, either Man City or Atletico will face one of Chelsea or Real Madrid, while the winner of Benfica vs Liverpool will take on Bayern or Villarreal for a shot at the Champions League trophy.
Unlike the round of 16, this was an entirely open draw, so any two teams could have been put together regardless of whether they squared off in the group stage or are from the same country.
