The draw to determine the quarterfinals and semifinals of the Champions League will take place in Nyon, Switzerland at 11 a.m. BST (6 a.m. ET/12 p.m. CET).

The quarterfinals will be played on Aug. 15-16, semifinals on Aug. 18-19 and the final on Aug. 23.

Quarterfinals Aug. 12, 13, 14, 15
Semifinals Aug. 18, 19
Final Aug. 23
Draw for the final stages on July 10.

In the games yet to be completed, Bayern Munich’s impressive return to action which saw them win all nine matches in the Bundesliga, as well as secure victories in the German Cup semifinal and final, makes them among the favourites for the tournament — and they bring a 3-0 lead over Chelsea back to the Allianz Arena.

Manchester City secured an impressive 2-1 win away to Real Madrid and will look to finish the job off at the Etihad, while Barcelona are in a strong position to overcome Napoli, having drawn 1-1 at the San Paolo.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo could be in line for his first round-of-16 exit for 10 years if Juventus fail to overturn a 1-0 deficit against Lyon.

There are no seedings or country protection for the draw.

The final stages of the Champions League, from the quarter-finals onwards, will be played as a mini-tournament in Portugal and the Europa League in Germany, with the draws to be made on Friday. All those matches will be over one leg.

UEFA confirmed that the two Europa League ties where the first leg did not take place — Inter Milan v Getafe and Sevilla v AS Roma — would be played over a single leg in Germany.

UEFA said it would be mandatory for all participating teams to follow its health protocol which sets out sanitary and hygiene-related procedures at all matches it organises.
