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
