The final of this year’s Champions League will take place in Instanbul in May but before that, there are the matters of the remaining quarter finals and then the semi-finals to get through. Paris-Saint Germain and Chelsea are already through to the semi-finals where they will be joined by either Real Madrid or Liverpool, and Manchester City or Borussia Dortmund, who will complete their quarter final ties later this evening.
No semi-final draw
The semi-finals will be played over two legs at the end of this month and the start of May. So when is the draw? The simple answer to that is that there isn’t going to be one. The semi-final pairings were already determined during the draw for the quarter finals in Nyon on 19 March.
In last month’s draw, it was established that the winners of QF3 (Bayern Munich v PSG) will face the winners of QF1 (Manchester City v Borussia Dortmund) in the semi-finals. The winners of QF4 (Real Madrid v Liverpool) will face the winners of QF2 (Porto Chelsea).
