The UEFA Champions League quarterfinals draw took place on Friday at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, and the remaining eight teams discovered their fate.
Holders Real Madrid, fresh off their impressive victory over Liverpool, will face Chelsea in a mouthwatering clash. While the Spanish giants will be favorites, Chelsea has shown resilience and determination, particularly in their comeback win against Borussia Dortmund in the previous round.
Manchester City, under the guidance of Pep Guardiola, will be aiming to win their first Champions League title this season. They will have to overcome the challenge of Bayern Munich, who despite their struggles in the Bundesliga this season, have a wealth of talent in their squad.
Napoli, led by the impressive Victor Osimhen, is currently on course to win their first Serie A title since 1990 and will be looking to carry that form into the Champions League. They face AC Milan, who have struggled in their domestic league this season.
Finally, Benfica and Inter Milan round out the quarterfinals and both will be confident of reaching the semifinals. Inter narrowly defeated Porto, thanks to a late goal from Romelu Lukaku, while Benfica scored an emphatic 7-1 victory over Club Brugge.
With plenty of exciting fixtures ahead, the quarterfinals promise to be full of drama and unpredictability. Who will make it through to the semifinals and take one step closer to being crowned champions of Europe? Only time will tell.
