Who can Chelsea face in the Champions League quarter-final draw?


helsea will be confident of extending their run in the Champions League if they can land a plum tie in Friday’s quarter-final draw.

A comeback win over Borussia Dortmund booked the Blues’ spot in the ceremony in Switzerland later this week, with six of the eight teams now confirmed.

The draw is completely open, with no restrictions on facing teams from the same country or group.

Therefore, a rematch of the 2021 final against Manchester City is a potential outcome after Pep Guardiola’s side demolished RB Leipzig in the second leg of their last-16 tie.

No other Premier League side is likely to make it to the final eight with Tottenham knocked out by AC Milan and Liverpool beaten by Real Madrid.

Chelsea will fancy their chances against a Milan team they beat twice in the groups while it would be a case of revenge against Real for last season’s quarter-final shock at the Bernabeu.

Inter Milan are also in the hat after edging Porto although Chelsea have never beaten the Italians following their only meeting, in the 2010 knockouts.

Bayern Munich are another team the Blues have a less-than-convincing history with, bar their 2012 final triumph. Benfica, plus one Napoli complete the draw.

Possible Chelsea opponents in the Champions League quarter-final draw:

  • Real Madrid
  • Napoli
  • AC Milan
  • Bayern Munich
  • Benfica
  • Manchester City
  • Inter Milan

Ties will be played on the midweeks of April 10 and April 17.
