The Champions League quarter-final draw will take place Friday, March 16 at 11:00 GMT (06:00 ET) .

It will happen at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, and fans will be able to follow it via live stream on UEFA's official website as well as being able to follow the latest news on Goal.

The first legs will be played on April 3 and 4, with the return legs taking place a week later on April 10 and 11. 

How does the Champions League quarter-final draw work?

Unlike previous draws, there are no restrictions on which clubs can draw one another.

So, should Barcelona reach the next round, for example, a Clasico matchup against Real Madrid could be on the cards.

Which teams are in the Champions League quarter-finals?

Real Madrid secured their spot by beating Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain in both legs of their tie; Zinedine Zidane's side picked up a 3-1 home victory before beating PSG 2-1 in the return leg.

Joining Real in the last eight of the competition will be Premier League duo Liverpool, whose 5-0 victory at Porto in the first leg of their double-header was enough to see them through, and Manchester City, who progressed past FC Basel with an aggregate score of 5-2.

Tottenham, however, were beaten 2-1 by Juventus at Wembley in the second meeting between the two clubs, meaning the Italian champions squeezed into the next round with a 4-3 aggregate scoreline.

Manchester United were knocked out following a 2-1 defeat at home to Sevilla, while Roma progressed at the expense of Shakhtar Donetsk thanks to away goals.

On Wednesday, Barcelona were inspired by Lionel Messi's double in seeing off the challenge of Chelsea, sealing a 4-1 aggregate victory at Camp Nou.

There were no surprises, meanwhile, in Istanbul, as Bayern completed an 8-1 drubbing of Besiktas to advance once more.
