Chelsea will face holders Real Madrid in the Champions League quarter-finals, the same stage where the 14-time winners defeated the Blues last season.

The Blues defeated Borussia Dortmund to advance to the last eight, while Madrid, led by former Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti, defeated Liverpool 6-2 on aggregate in a rematch of last season’s final.

Manchester City will face Pep Guardiola’s former club Bayern Munich, the 2020 champions, in the last eight. City thrashed RB Leipzig in their last-16 tie, with Erling Haaland scoring five goals in the second leg, but they’re unlikely to find things as easy against Julian Nagelsmann’s reigning German champions, who easily defeated Paris Saint-Germain.
