The line-up for the Champions League last eight is now known, but when is the quarter-final draw and how does it work?
Liverpool were held by Porto at Anfield but eased through to the last eight thanks to their 5-0 first-leg win, while Manchester City joined the Reds in the hat for the draw after beating Basel 5-2 on aggregate.
However, Premier League rivals Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United were all eliminated from Europe's premier club competition after last-16 defeats to Juventus, Barcelona and Sevilla respectively.
When is the draw?
The draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League will be made at 11am GMT on Friday, March 16, at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland. You can follow it on Sky Sports News or skysports.com and the Sky Sports apps.
Are there any rules or restrictions?
None. At this stage of the competition, it's a free-for-all and with no 'country protection' anyone can face anyone. That means we could see an all-England tie featuring Liverpool and City.
The team drawn first from the pot will play the first leg at home, with those drawn second starting away.
Who is in the quarter-finals?
Liverpool, City, Juventus, holders Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Sevilla, Barcelona and Roma will be the eight names in the hat for Friday's draw.
When are the quarter-finals?
The first leg of the last-eight fixtures will be played on April 3/4, with the return legs a week later on April 10/11.
