Liverpool have been handed a tough draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League as they face Real Madrid in a repeat of the 2018 final. The clubs have won the competition 19 times between them, with Madrid winning in 2018 and Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions winning it a year later.

Chelsea have been drawn to play Porto and the winner will face Liverpool or Real Madrid in the semi-finals.

Manchester City’s quest for a maiden Champions League title will continue with a quarter-final against Borussia Dortmund. City, who have never got past the semi-final of the premier European club competition, will face more German opposition after beating Borussia Monchengladbach in the last 16.

If City can get past Dortmund then they will meet either Bayern Munich or Paris St Germain in the semi-final.

The German side and PSG, managed by Mauricio Pochettino, are meeting in the quarter-final in a repeat of last season’s final.
