Who can Man City draw in the Champions League quarter-finals?


Manchester City are safely into the last eight of the Champions League – even if United aren’t.

The Blues haf already booked their passage into the quarter-finals by seeing og basel by the time the Reds succumbed to Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday night.

Chelsea’s fate hangs in the balance as they travel to the Camp Nou on Wednesday to face a Barcelona side who have an away goal to their good.

Spurs narrowly lost to Italian giants Juventus at Wembley last week while Liverpool did the job in the first leg against Porto so they also progress.

The quarter-finals marks the first time English sides can meet each other in the knockout stages of the Champions League as there will be no ‘country protection’.

Here is everything you need to know.

Is there ‘country protection’?

No. This will be an open draw in which no teams are seeded and clubs from the same national association can be drawn against each other. The side drawn first will play the first leg at home.
