When is the Champions League semi-final draw?

The final of this year’s Champions League will take place in Instanbul in May but before that, there are the semi-finals to get through. Paris-Saint Germain and Chelsea are already through to the semi-finals where they will be joined by Real Madrid who beat Liverpool, and Manchester City who came back to defeat Borussia Dortmund, in the quarter final ties earlier this evening.

No semi-final draw

The semi-finals will be played over two legs at the end of this month and the start of May. So when is the draw? The simple answer to that is that there isn’t going to be one. The semi-final pairings were already determined during the draw for the quarter finals in Nyon on 19 March.

In last month’s draw, it was established that the winners of QF3 (Bayern Munich v PSG) will face the winners of QF1 (Manchester City v Borussia Dortmund) in the semi-finals. The winners of QF4 (Real Madrid v Liverpool) will face the winners of QF2 (Porto v Chelsea).

That means the semi-finals are as follows:

PSG vs Manchester City

Real Madrid vs Chelsea
