2021-22 UEFA Champions League draw: With the results of the UEFA Champions League draw, the final European Cup challenges for three Premier League teams have been revealed, as the quarterfinal and semifinal paths have been drawn for Chelsea, Manchester City, and Liverpool, respectively.
In the next round, Chelsea will face Real Madrid, with the winner going through to the semi-finals
Atletico Madrid was the draw for Manchester City on Sunday, pitting Pep Guardiola against longtime rival Diego Simeone, and reuniting Rodri with his old club.
Benfica becomes a surprise package for Liverpool, leaving Villarreal and Bayern Munich to compete in the last quarterfinal.
The Reds will not say this, obviously, but will be very happy to avoid both Premier League rivals as well as both teams from the Madrid derby until a possible final, though potential semifinal foe Bayern Munich may well be the favorite to win the cup.
I am pleased to inform you that the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals and semifinals were drawn on Friday, the 18th of March. Let’s see how the two teams match up.
The quarterfinals will be contested over two legs (April 5-6 and April 12-13). The semifinals will also be played over two legs (April 26-27) and (May 3-4).
