Champions League quarter-final draw: key dates, last odds, details of the flow and VAR explained

The European elite teams have returned to our screens this week in the Champions League over the last 16 years, but did not go as planned for Manchester United.

Tottenham Hotspur have a foot in the last eight after a 3-0 win over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday night, while the English teammates, Manchester City and Liverpool are hoping for better luck when their matches kick off quarter-finals.

Here's everything you need to know about who will interpret who and the key dates for the coming months.

When is the quarter-final draw?

The draw for the quarter-finals of the competition will take place on Friday 15 March at 11:00 (UK time) in Nyon, Switzerland.

There are no seeding teams before the draw, which means that every team that reaches the stage can face anyone.

At this point, there are also no regional restrictions, which means that the clubs of the same countries could be attracted to one another.

When will the next projectors be played?

9/10 April: quarter-finals, first stage

April 16/17: quarterfinals, return

When will VAR be used?

Video Assistant Referees (VAR) technology was introduced for the first time in the Champions League this week and is making its way.

It works on a three-stage accident, review / advice, and decision process in all four football jurisdictions deemed to be "game changes" by FIFA.

The IFAB says that VAR should be used "to correct clear errors and major missed incidents" in those situations that change matches.

VARs and other match officials are able to recommend reviews, but the only person who can start one is the umpire, who will then have the final say on whether their original decision should or not be modified.

They have the ability to review the footage themselves on a pitch-side monitor before making a final decision.


VARs are used here to help the referee determine whether an infraction was committed that would result in failure to achieve the goal.


Here, VAR will try to ensure that the correct decision on the award or the non-award of a sanction has been made.

Wrong identity

VAR will clarify which players must be warned or expelled, or correct the referee in case of an incorrect identity.

Who are the favorites to win it?

Manchester City – 3/1

Barcelona – 9/2

Paris Saint Germain – 6/1

Juventus – 7/1

Liverpool – 8/1

Bayern Munich – 14/1
