We have our eight quarter-finalists. We have our four quarter-finals. We even have our two semi-finals.

Now, we just await one winner.

Manchester City are favourites. Bayern Munich are holders. Chelsea are the movers with momentum. Porto are the outsiders. Real Madrid are the most successful team in the competition’s history. Liverpool are six-time winners. PSG have the world’s most expensive players. Borussia Dortmund have the game’s most in-demand striker.

The competition could not be set up any better.

So, one more time, here is the list of the four Champions League quarter-finals:

  • Man City v Borussia Dortmund
  • Porto v Chelsea
  • Bayern Munich v PSG
  • Real Madrid v Liverpool

The first legs will be played on April 6/7, the second legs a week later on April 13/14.

And, of course, here are the semi-finals that await the victors of each tie:

  • Bayern Munich/PSG v Man City/Dortmund
  • Real Madrid/Liverpool v Porto/Chelsea

The first game of the semis will take place on April 27/28 with the returns on May 4/5.

We really cannot wait.

That’s all from us this afternoon, but if you’re after more European excitement, why not take a look at how the Europa League draw has panned out.

From the Home of European Football in Nyon, goodbye.
