Champions League draw results: Quarter-final, semi-final fixtures, schedule as Man City draw Real Madrid and Arsenal play Bayern Munich


Reigning champions Manchester City will play Real Madrid and Premier League leaders Arsenal have been drawn against Bayern Munich in the Uefa Champions League quarter-finals.

The English title contenders will meet in the semi-finals if they win their last-eight fixtures.

City breezed past Copenhagen 6-2 on aggregate in the round of 16, while the Gunners beat Porto 4-2 on penalties at Emirates Stadium after a 1-1 draw on aggregate.

Madrid are the most successful team in the history of the competition, winning it 14 times, and the current Liga leaders lost 5-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals last season to City, who did the damage by winning the second leg 4-0 at home.

Madrid beat City in an epic semi-final in 2021/22, triumphing 6-5 on aggregate courtesy of Karim Benzema’s extra-time goal in the second leg.

Bayern are having a difficult season by their trophy-laden standards, sitting 10 points behind Bundesliga leaders Bayer Leverkusen.

Roten manager Thomas Tuchel, who won the Champions League in 2020/21 with former club Chelsea, announced in February that this will be his final campaign in charge amid a patchy run of form.

The six-time European champions overcame a deficit from their away first leg to beat Lazio 3-1 on aggregate in the round of 16.

Arsenal are in the last eight for the first time in 14 years. Their previous appearance in the Champions League ended with a 10-2 aggregate thrashing by Bayern in the 2016/17 round of 16.

Mikel Arteta’s side are level on points with Europa League quarter-finalists Liverpool at the top-flight summit.

City, who host Arsenal in their first match following the international break on March 31, are a point behind the top two.

The Champions league semi-final draw was made directly after the quarter-final procedure, potentially pitting Arsenal and City against each other and ensuring they will play Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain or Barcelona if they reach the final, which will take place at Wembley Stadium on June 1.

The quarter-final first legs will be held on April 9 and 10, with the return matches a week later. The semi-finals will start on April 30 and May 1 and conclude on May 7 and 8.

Uefa are likely to confirm the fixtures later on Friday.
