The Champions League quarter-final draw will take place on Friday March 19, 2021 and it will begin at 11am GMT (6am ET).
As is customary, the draw will be held at the House of European Football at UEFA’s headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
UEFA’s official website and associated channels will be streaming the draw live online.
It will also be covered by UEFA’s broadcast television partners and most major sports news channels.
If you are unable to watch, Goal will have all the latest news from the draw as it happens right here.
The identity of the teams in the hat for the Champions League quarter-final draw will not be finalised until the last-16 fixtures conclude on March 17.
It is an open draw, meaning there is no seeding in place and the country protections which were in place for the last 16 will not apply.
So, for example, we could potentially see a Madrid derby quarter-final involving Atletico Madrid and Real Madrid should both teams progress.
|Borussia Monchengladbach / Manchester City||Germany / England|
|Lazio / Bayern Munich||Italy / Germany|
|Atletico Madrid / Chelsea||Spain / England|
|Paris Saint-Germain||🇫🇷 France|
|Borussia Dortmund||🇩🇪 Germany|
|Atalanta / Real Madrid||Italy / Spain|
The quarter-final ties will be played across two legs. The first legs will be played on April 6 and 7, with the second legs being played a week later on April 13 and 14.
As well as the draw for the quarter-finals, UEFA will also complete the semi-final draw on March 19, so we will have a clear picture of the path to the final.
Wrapping up administrative formalities, a draw will also be held to determine the ‘home’ and ‘away’ teams for the final.
