When is the UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw?
Just eight sides remain in the 2020/21 UEFA Champions League ahead of Friday's quarter-final draw which will be staged in the UEFA HQ in Nyon.
We now have just eight sides who remain on the 'Road to Istanbul' with FC Porto delivering the biggest shock in the round of 16 fixtures as they dumped Juve and Cristiano Ronaldo out of the competition on away goals. Three English sides remain in the competition with no Serie A representative and just Real Madrid flying the flag for LaLiga, which will no doubt prompt, the classic: "Which is the best league in Europe" debate. So, we hear you ask... when is the draw for the next stage of the competition?
