Last eight await quarter-final draw

Eight teams from five different countries will feature in the draw for the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals and semi-finals from 12.00CET at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

Eight teams from five different countries will feature in the draw for the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals and semi-finals from 12.00CET at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.

The lineup was completed on Wednesday after Chelsea FC and Real Madrid CF claimed the last two berths on offer. The pair joined holders FC Internazionale Milano and Manchester United FC, who won through on Tuesday evening, in the draw. It will be conducted by UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino and the ambassador for the final, former England striker Gary Lineker.

Two of Lineker's former clubs, FC Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur FC, progressed last week along with FC Schalke 04 and FC Shakhtar Donetsk. The Ukrainian champions are competing in the last eight for the first time, while Tottenham have appeared in only one previous European Champion Clubs' Cup quarter-final, in 1961/62.

The draw will be open, meaning teams from the same association can be drawn against each other with the ties to be played on 5/6 and 12/13 April. The semi-final pairings will also be determined with those games taking place on 26/27 April and 3/4 May. The 2010/11 UEFA Champions League final will be held on Saturday 28 May at Wembley Stadium in London, kicking off at 20.45CET.

Both draws will be transmitted live on UEFA.com.
