What time are the Champions League and Europa League draws tomorrow?

When will the draws take place?

Both the Champions League and Europa League draws will take place on Friday, March 19 in Nyon, Switzerland.

The Champions League draw will be streamed live on uefa.com and broadcast on BT Sport from 11am GMT.

In the United States, this will be 7am ET and 4am PT.

The Europa League draws will take place after the Champions League event is concluded.

Who is through in the Champions League?

Liverpool became the first club to book their place in this season’s quarter-finals. Despite their patchy Premier League form, Jurgen Klopp’s side eased past RB Leipzig 4-0 on aggregate last week. Manchester City followed suit on Tuesday after cruising past Borussia Monchengladbach, with the elusive “quadruple” remaining on the cards for Pep Guardiola.

Paris Saint-Germain have also sealed their place in the last eight. Last season’s finalists will be lifted by the return of their talisman Neymar for the quarter-finals, although the club’s emphatic 5-2 aggregate win against Barcelona proved they have more bows to their arrow – namely a certain Mbappe.

Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel claimed his side “fear no one” in European competition after they comfortably dispatched La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid 3-0 on aggregate.

Similarly, holders Bayern Munich continued their infallible form in the competition with a 6-2 aggregate win against Lazio. The German giants have qualified for the quarter-finals for the 19th time – the most of any team in the competition’s history.

Real Madrid also confirmed their place in the next round after their 3-1 win against Atalanta. They will be joined by Borussia Dortmund and FC Porto.

What about the Europa League?

The remaining 16 teams play their second-leg fixtures later on Thursday as they look to book their place in the latter stages of the competition.

From the British contingent, Manchester United are level on aggregate against AC Milan but must score after conceding a last-minute away goal equalizer in the first leg. Tottenham and Arsenal have slightly more breathing room with their 2-0 and 3-1 leads against Dinamo Zagreb and Olympiakos respectively. Recently crowned Scottish champions Rangers will also be hoping to continue their fine form as they host Slavia Praha after the first leg finished 1-1.


Ajax and Roma also hold comfortable 3-0 leads against their opposition, while Spanish sides Villarreal and Granada hold a two-goal advantage in their ties.

How will the upcoming draws be different?

This round will be an open draw in both tournaments. This means there will be no seedings or country protection that applied in the last-16 draw.

The same will apply for the semi-final draw and any restrictions will be announced ahead of Friday’s event.

When will the quarter-finals take place?

The first legs of the Champions League quarter-finals are scheduled to take place on April 6 and 7, with the return legs being played over April 13 and 14.

Meanwhile, the first legs of the Europa League quarter-finals are scheduled to take place on April 8 and the return legs on April 15.

What about the semi-final draw?

The draw for the semi-finals in both competitions will also be held on March 19, as will the draw to determine the ‘home’ team for the finals in May.

The Champions League final will be held at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul on May 29, while the Gdansk Arena in Poland will host the Europa League final on May 26.
