The knockout stage of the 2018-19 Champions League is here and some of Europe’s biggest clubs remain in the competition.
Sixteen teams have progressed from the group stage and that will soon be reduced to eight, with last-16 ties set to take place in February and March.
So with the quarter-final on the horizon, Goal takes a look at when the draw is, who is involved and more
When is the Champions League quarter-final draw ?
UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland is the venue for the draw, which will be attended by representatives of the clubs that are left in the competition.
It will be held two days after the conclusion of the final last 16 games, which take place on March 13
Teams & how the draw works
Unlike the draw for the last 16, there are no seedings and there are no restrictions prohibiting teams from the same country facing off.
UEFA will announce any further restrictions that will be applied to the draw ahead of the event.
We will know the identities of the eight teams involved in the draw come March 15, but right now it remains very much undecided.

|Manchester United OR Paris Saint-Germain||Roma OR Porto|
|Tottenham OR Borussia Dortmund||Ajax OR Real Madrid|
|Lyon OR Barcelona||Liverpool OR Bayern Munich|
|Schalke OR Manchester City||Atletico Madrid OR Juventus|
Reigning champions Real Madrid have been paired with Ajax in the last 16, which may seem like a favourable draw, but it should be noted that the Dutch outfit came through their group unbeaten, beating Benfica and drawing twice with Bayern Munich.
