UCL Quarter final draw: The UEFA Champions League Round of 16 has concluded, and the top eight teams in Europe have advanced to the quarter-finals.
Bayern Munich is one of these teams, and we’re here to see yet another cringe-worthy ceremony to find out who we’ll face in the competition’s next round.
This time, there is no seeding and only a basic sketching technique.
The semi-final draw will occur at the same time as the quarter-final draw, meaning all teams will know their path to the final after today.
The following are the names of the participants in the drawing:
As you can see, it’s largely an English and Spanish affair, with the Group E survivors (Benfica and Bayern Munich) offering some variety.
The last time UEFA held one of these drawings, they committed a major error that resulted in the event being canceled and rescheduled.
Let’s hoping things go more smoothly this time, and Bayern is matched up with a worthy opponent.
