Now that Liverpool are qualified for the last eight of the UEFA Champions League, fans will be wanting to know the details of the draw and we have you covered.

A 5-0 aggregate win saw the Reds progress ahead of Porto in the Round of 16 despite not scoring a single goal in the second leg at Anfield.

Jurgen Klopp spoke last night about how the focus is already turning to progressing to the semi-finals.

The German told reporters: “There are seven other very good teams that will be involved. Maybe four of them are then from England and that doesn’t make it easier, to be honest, but I think we’ll have a chance, for sure, to go to the semis and that’s the target.”

Real Madrid and Liverpool are the first two sides to have qualified after the La Liga outfit beat PSG 2-1 last night in Paris to win 5-2 on aggregate.

Six quarter-final spots remain with Juventus and Spurs playing at Wembley tonight while Manchester City will also be playing their second leg against Basel.

The remaining ties are as follow:

Wednesday, March 7:
Manchester City (4) v (0) FC Basel
Tottenham Hotspur (2) v (2) Juventus

Tuesday, March 13
Manchester United (0) v (0) Sevilla
Roma (1) v (2) Shakhtar Donetsk

Wednesday, March 14

Once all the games have been completed, the draw will take place live at UEFA’s HQ in Switzerland on Friday 16 March at 11 am GMT.

There won’t be any seeding and unlike the Round of 16, there won’t be any country protection so Liverpool could face another English side – as they did the last time they made it to the last eight in 2009 when they played Chelsea.

The first team to be drawn will host the first leg on April 3 or 4 and the second leg will be on April 10 or 11.
