UEFA Champions League 2020-21 quarter-finals and semi-finals draw: Everything you need to know


Liverpool will face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League 2020-21 next month, with Jurgen Klopp’s side traveling to Spain for the first leg scheduled for April 6.

Jurgen Klopp’s side aren’t in the best of form in the Premier League but their form in Europe has been nothing short of excellent. The reigning Premier League champions defeated RB Leipzig in the last-eight to book a quarter-final against Zinedine Zidane’s men.

Elsewhere in the quarter-finals, Chelsea will take on giant-killers Porto who dumped out Cristiano Ronaldo’s Juventus in the last round. However, the Blues’ previous record of winning four home games against the Portuguese outfit makes them favorites to go through from the tie.

The winners of both these quarter-finals will clash in the semi-finals, meaning there’s a possibility that Liverpool and Chelsea, who clashed in the last four of the 2005 Champions League, could once again face off each other in the last four.

 

Bayern to face PSG in replay of last season’s final

Paris Saint-Germain might have felt relieved after knocking out Barcelona in the next round but their opponents in the quarter-finals are none other than the Bayern Munich side that denied PSG the chance of winning the club’s first Champions League title last season.

Mauricio Pochettino’s side, however, could take comfort from the fact that Neymar will be available for the last-eight. The Brazil international missed both clashes against his former side Barcelona in the previous round but should return to action after next week’s international break.

 

Man City face tricky Dortmund in the last-eight

Pep Guardiola is reportedly keen to sign Erling Haaland for his Manchester City side in the summer and the Spaniard will have the chance to look at the Norway international from up and close when his Man City side face Borussia Dortmund in the last-eight.

The Premier League champions-elect brushed past Borussia Monchengladbach in the previous round, whereas Dortmund got the better of Sevilla. Both of them will be fancying their chances of making it to the last four of the Champions League.
