UEFA Champions League: Chelsea drawn against Real Madrid in quarter-finals

Holders Chelsea have been drawn against the record 13-time winners Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League.

The English side defeated Real in the semi-finals of last year’s competition en route to their second-ever title.

La Liga champions Atlético Madrid will meanwhile play last year’s runner-up and Premier League champions Manchester City.

The semi-final draw could either pair last year’s finalists together or see either a rematch of the 2014 and 2016 finals – when Real twice beat Atlético.

The third quarter-final match sees 2021 UEFA Europa League winners Villarreal take on 2020 UEFA Champions League victors Bayern Munich.

The winner of that matchup will then play either Liverpool — six times Champions League winners — or Portuguese side Benfica — who last won the European Cup in 1962.

The two-legged quarter-finals will take place on 5/6 and 12/13 April, before the semi-finals on 26/27 April and 3/4 May.

This year’s UEFA Champions League final is now due to be held at the Stade de France in Paris on 28 May. St. Petersburg was stripped of final last month following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
