Holders Chelsea will play Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals, while Manchester City have been drawn against Atletico Madrid.

Liverpool, who beat Italian champions Inter Milan to progress from the last 16, will face Portuguese side Benfica.

The other quarter-final tie sees Spanish side Villarreal, last season’s Europa League winners, take on Bayern Munich after shocking Juventus in the last 16.

Manchester City will face Chelsea in the semi-final if both sides are successful in the quarters – which would be a repeat of last season’s final in Porto.

Chelsea overcame Real Madrid in last season’s semi-final, beating the 13-time winners of this competition 3-1 on aggregate, and will be looking to do the same this time out in the quarters.

“It’s a tough one,” said Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel. “The challenge couldn’t be much higher, playing the second leg in the Bernabeu with spectators. It’s a big challenge and a big excitement around this match and this fixture. We know what’s coming and it will be an exciting match and a tough challenge.”

The first leg of the quarter-final ties will be played on Tuesday April 5 and Wednesday April 6, with the second legs taking place on April 12 and April 13.

The semi-finals will then be played on Tuesday April 26 and Wednesday April 27 with the second legs on May 3 and 4.
