Champions League quarter-final and semi-final ties confirmed

Chelsea will play Barcelona or Napoli in the quarter-finals of the Champions League if they can overcome their last-16, first-leg deficit against Bayern Munich.

The Blues were beaten 3-0 by the German champions in the first leg, with Serge Gnabry scoring twice.

Manchester City, meanwhile, will play Lyon or Juventus in the last eight if they can hold onto their slender lead over Real Madrid. Pep Guardiola’s side won 2-1 at the Santiago Bernabeu in February.

Two other last-16 second leg ties involving Juve and Lyon, Barca and Napoli will complete the quarter-final draw. Four other teams, including Atletico Madrid, progressed to the last eight before the lockdown.
