Champions League quarter-final draw pits Real Madrid vs Chelsea, Manchester City vs Bayern

Real Madrid will have to overcome Chelsea again if they are to win yet another Champions League title in 2023, with Los Blancos being drawn against the West London side in the quarter-final draw on Friday.

The winners of that tie will go on to meet the winners of arguably the standout quarter-final fixture in Manchester City vs Bayern Munich in the semi-finals.

On the other side of the Champions League quarter-final draw, there is an all-Italian tie in AC Milan vs Napoli and Italy's other representatives, Inter, will have to see off Portuguese opposition again in Benfica. Inter knocked out Porto in the round of 16.

Big Champions League ties?

Manchester City vs Bayern Munich is clearly the most eye-catching fixture, with Pep Guardiola having to face his former club with the Premier League champions.

It is a heavily-weighted draw with the majority of the favourites for the trophy on the one side, with Napoli being the exception and falling on the other side of the draw. The Serie A leaders will be confident now of reaching the final.

When are the Champions League quarter-finals?

The Champions League quarter-final first legs will be played on April 11/12, 2023. The second legs are set for April 18/19, 2023.

Where is the 2023 Champions League final?

The 2023 Champions League final will be played in Istanbul's Ataturk Olympic Stadium. It is the same venue as the 2005 final.

AC Milan, then, will have bad memories should they reach this year's final, as they led 3-0 at half time then only to go on and incredibly lose to Liverpool.
