When will the draw take place?

The draw will take place on Friday March 18 at around 2pm UK time. It will take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, and will be broadcast live here.

What are the draws made?

Not only will the quarter-finals be drawn, but the semi-finals as well. Each quarter-final matchup will be numbered one through four and paired with another match from the final four. Afterwards, a draw will be made to determine which potential semi-finalists will be the “home” side of the final in Albania, which UEFA say is determined for “administrative reasons”.

Are there any rules for the draw?

Not this time. While the Round of 16 draw has been classified, any club can play any other this time around, including teams from their own country. This is not a problem for City, as they are the only English team left.

Who is in the draw?

City could face teams from Norway, the Netherlands, Italy, France, the Czech Republic and Greece. Here is the full list: Bodo/Glimt; The City of Leicester; PSV Eindhoven; Marseilles; Feyenoord; Roma; Slavia Prague; PAOK.

When will the matches be played?

The two quarter-finals will be played on Thursday April 7 and Thursday April 14, after the next international break. They will then take a week off, with the semi-finals on Thursday April 28 and Thursday May 5.
