CHAMPIONS LEAGUE DRAW

Follow the Champions League draw live on The Spoiler

All the quarter-final and semi-final fixtures will published here

Representatives of all eight Champions League semi-finalists are gathered in Nyon for the draw, which was scheduled to start at 11am. You haven’t missed anything yet though – just UEFA general secretary David Taylor explaining how they manage to make such a simple process so complicated and a few video packages being shown to drag things out. The full draw will be published below as soon as the serious business begins:

Quarter-final draw:

Villarreal v Arsenal

Manchester United v Porto

Liverpool v Chelsea

Barcelona v Bayern Munich

Semi-final draw:

Manchester United/Porto v Villarreal/Arsenal

Barcelona/Bayern Munich v Liverpool/Chelsea

Interesting stats:

» The side drawn to play the second-leg at home have won the previous three Chelsea/Liverpool Champions League clashes – handing the Blues the advantage.

» Porto eliminated Manchester United the last time they met them in the knockout stages.

» Last season every single quarter-final and semi-final was won by the team drawn to play the first leg away. If that happens again we will have an Arsenal/Chelsea final
