The Champions League quarter-final draw will take place on Friday, March 17 at 11:00 GMT at UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. It will be followed by the draw for the same round of the Europa League an hour later.

The quarter-final draw is open and unseeded, so the teams are unranked and clubs from the same country can face each other. Put simply, it is a totally random draw and anyone can face anyone.

The clubs that come out of the hat first for each tie will play the first leg at home.


How can I watch the Champions League quarter-final draw?


The draw can be watched live on UEFA.com, who stream the ceremony for each round on their official website.

Goal will also be providing live, comprehensive coverage of the draw as it happens on our site, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and more.
