The race for European glory in the current campaign is being whittled down to eight teams, with more heavyweight encounters on the cards

The race for Champions League glory in 2021-22 is well and truly on, with there set to be just eight teams left in the running when we reach the quarter-final stage.

There have been some notable casualties along the way, with the likes of Barcelona and Borussia Dortmund failing to make it out of their respective groups, and more dreams will have been dashed in the last 16.

All of those still chasing down a prestigious European prize are looking to emulate Chelsea’s efforts from 12 months ago, when the Blues emerged victorious against Manchester City in Porto, but when will the next set of fixtures be set in stone? GOAL has all of the information you need right here!

The draw for the Champions League quarter-finals will take place in Nyon, Switzerland on Friday, March 18 and will get under way at 11am GMT/6am ET at the House of European Football.

Alongside a draw for the last eight, teams will also learn their paths for the semi-finals – meaning that this will be the last draw for 2021-22.

The draw is totally open at this stage, with there no restrictions in place regarding which sides can be paired against one another.
