Liverpool’s Next Champions League Opponent Has Been Revealed Ahead Of The Quarter-Final Draw

On Tuesday, Liverpool just about did enough to win a spot in the Champions League quarter-finals.

Inter Milan overcame the Reds 1-0 at home in their round of 16-second leg clash, although the Reds advanced on aggregate after winning 2-0 in Italy three weeks previously.

Liverpool has reached the final eight of Europe’s premier knockout tournament for the fourth time in the previous five years, and the 17th time overall.

And the six-time champions, who last won in 2019 under Jurgen Klopp, are now waiting to find out how they will advance to the final, which will be held on Saturday, May 28 at the Stade de France in Paris.

When will the draw take place?

On Friday, March 18 at 11 a.m., the quarter-finals and semi-finals will be drawn in Nyon, Switzerland. It will be shown live on BT Sport, as well as on the BT Sport and UEFA websites.

The ‘home’ team for the final in Paris will also be chosen, making this the competition’s last draw of the season.

What exactly are the guidelines?

There are no seedings or nation protection in the Champions League after the quarter-finals. Because of this, Liverpool might be matched with another Premier League team or face Atletico Madrid, despite having faced them in the group stages.

The sole exception is that teams from the same city cannot play on the same day or on successive days at home. This might happen this season if, for example, both Manchester clubs progress, causing United’s domestic games to be reversed this season as the lower-ranked team.

Who has already completed the task?

Bayern Munich qualified on the same night as Liverpool by thrashing Red Bull Salzburg 7-1 at home after a 1-1 draw in the first leg.

They were joined on Wednesday by Manchester City, who drew 0-0 with Sporting Lisbon in their second leg at home after romping to a 5-0 triumph in Portugal three weeks ago, and Real Madrid, who defeated PSG 3-1.

Who else is in with a chance?

The remaining four ties are all but decided.

Manchester United will face Atletico Madrid on Tuesday following a 1-1 draw in Spain, while Ajax will face Benfica after a thrilling 2-2 tie in the first leg.

The next night, Juventus hosts Villarreal at home, with the score tied at 1-1, while Chelsea, the European champions, will want to complete the job in Lille after winning 2-0 at Stamford Bridge.
