Stage set for quarter-final draw

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final and UEFA Cup semi-final draws take place today.

The UEFA Champions League quarter-final draw takes place tomorrow at 12.30CET at the House of Football in Nyon and uefa.com will be there to bring you live coverage. It will be followed at 13.00 by the UEFA Cup semi-final draw.

Three Spanish sides
Panathinaikos FC and Bayer 04 Leverkusen completed the last-eight lineup after securing their quarter-final places at the expense of FC Porto and Arsenal FC on Wednesday. The elimination of Arsenal means Spain has the most representatives remaining in the competition, with three in Real Madrid CF, FC Barcelona and RC Deportivo La Coruña.

Group winners kept apart
The four group winners in the hat are Manchester United FC from Group A, Barcelona from Group B, Madrid from Group C and Leverkusen from Group D. FC Bayern München, Liverpool FC, Panathinaikos and Deportivo all advanced as runners-up. The draw will pit each group winner against a runner-up from one of the other three groups.

National derbies in prospect
Teams from the same second group stage section cannot meet, but teams from the same country can. This means quarter-final ties between Spanish, German and English sides are all possible. In each quarter-final, the group winner has the advantage of playing the second leg at home.
