Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-final and Semi-final Draw

Liverpool Fc (The Reds) sealed their place in the Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-finals, after brushing aside the German Bundesliga side RB Leipzig in the Second Leg of the Champions League 2020-21 Round of 16.

The Reds and the remaining 7 Teams in the competition will soon have a clear picture of their route to the Champions League 2020-21 Final.


Champions League 2020-21 Quarter-final, Semi-final and Final Draw Schedule

The Quarter-final Draw Ceremony is scheduled to take place on 19 March 2021 and will be broadcast live from the House of European Football in Nyon (Switzerland) at 11 a.m (BST) on their website.

The Draw for the Semi-finals and the Draw to determine the ‘Home’ Team for the Final will also be held on the same day.


How will the draw work?

From the Quarter-finals onward, there will be no Seeding.

There will also be no Country protection which means that the qualified Teams can play against other Teams that plays in their Domestic Football in the same League.

Similar to an FA Cup or Carabao Cup draw, all the remaining eight Teams will be drawn one-by-one to reveal the four fixtures.

The Teams that are drawn first in each fixture will be hosting the First Legs.


Which Teams have qualified for the Quarter-finals?

FC Porto, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool Fc , Paris Saint-Germain Fc, Real Madrid CF, Manchester City Fc, Chelsea Fc, FC Bayern Munich


What are the Key Dates?

Quarter-finals: Ties to be played on 06/07 April 2021 (First Leg) and 13/14 April 2021 (Second Leg)

Semi-finals: Ties to be played on 27/28 April 2021 (First Leg) and 04/05 May 2021 (Second Leg)

Final: 29 May 2021 in Istanbul, Turkey


Verdict: If the Reds do go all way and make it to the Champions League 2020-21 Final, then even the naysayers might find it hard to deny the chances of the current Reds emulating the Reds that won the Champions League 2004-05 Final in the same venue where the Final is scheduled to take place.

Yet, only time will tell if the current Reds (with all their ongoing injury crisis) can emulate the Reds that won the Champions League 2004-05 Final.
