Champions League quarter-final draw: Chelsea to face Real Madrid, Man City get Bayern Munich

  • Chelsea face Madrid in repeat of 2021-22 tie
  • Guardiola comes up against former club Bayern
  • Potential for Milan derby in semi-finals

WHAT HAPPENED? Graham Potter's Blues were drawn against the holders Madrid in what will be a repeat of the 2021-22 quarter-final. Arguably the tie of the round is City against Bayern, where Pep Guardiola will come up against his former club, and Joao Cancelo. It is an all-Italian tie between six-time winners AC Milan and Serie A high-flyers Napoli, while 2010 winners Inter will also take on Benfica, who blew away Club Brugge in the last 16.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: Friday's draw also saw the potential opponents for the upcoming semi-finals. There was no luck for either Premier League side as they were placed in the same part of the draw alongside European giants Madrid and Bayern. That result does mean, though, that there is a possibility of an all-Milan semi-final, while any one of Milan, Napoli, Inter or Benfica will be guaranteed a place in the final.
