Pep Guardiola’s side will have home advantage in the second leg, and also in the semi-finals should they be victorious and will face the winner of the tie between Benfica and Chelsea.

Chelsea overturned a 3-1 first-leg deficit to knock out Napoli in order to reach the last eight of the competition while Benfica advanced from the last-16 by knocking out Zenit St Petersburg.

Former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho faces a trip to Cyprus after Real Madrid were paired with Apoel FC. If Real win, they would then meet the winners of Marseille and Bayern Munich, who hammered Basel 7-1 on aggregate in the last 16

That means the prospect of an all-Spanish Champions League final between giants Barcelona and Madrid exists.

The quarter-final first-leg ties will be played on March 27 & 28, with the return legs scheduled for April 3 & 4. The semis begin two weeks later on April 17 & 18, before a quick turnaround for the decisive encounters on April 24 & 25.

This year’s Champions League final, which will be hosted in Munich, takes place on May 19.
