Defending champions handed another English assignment

Chelsea and Real Madrid are set to meet in the competition for the third successive season.

The Premier League outfit, who saw off Borussia Dortmund in the last-16, beat Real in the semi-finals en route to winning the trophy in 2020/21.

Record 14-time winners Los Blancos earned revenge when running out 5-4 winners on aggregate in last season's quarter-finals.

Graham Potter's side have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks to record three successive victories across all competitions. However, a two-legged tie with Real, who won 5-2 at Liverpool in the previous round is going to be a major test.

Real Madrid are 5/6 to win the first-leg at the Bernabeu with Chelsea priced at 16/5 and the draw available at 13/5.

Pep set for Bayern reunion

Manchester City’s path towards the 10th June final in Istanbul, Turkey looks extremely difficult with Real Madrid or Chelsea waiting in the semi-finals if they manage to overcome Bayern Munich in the quarter-finals.

City made a major statement against German opposition in the last-16 when beating RB Leipzig 7-0 at the Etihad after drawing 1-1 on the road in the first-leg.

Now, it's the Premier League champions against the Bundesliga champions as Bayern Munich stand in their way.

Bayern eased to a 3-0 aggregate victory over Paris Saint-Germain in the previous round to reach the quarter-finals for the fourth successive campaign, having exited at this stage in each of the last two.

This will be the first competitive meeting between the two clubs since 2014 when City boss Pep Guardiola was in charge of Bayern.

Manchester City are 1/1 to win the first-leg at the Etihad against 5/2 Bayern Munich and the draw is priced at 13/5.

Milan meet Serie A leaders

AC Milan edged beyond Tottenham 1-0 on aggregate in the last-16 to reach the quarter-finals for the first time since 2011/12.

They face a familiar foe in the quarter-finals after being drawn against Serie A table-toppers Napoli, who dispatched Eintracht Frankfurt 5-0 on aggregate.

Napoli are making their first ever last-eight appearance in the competition and they have momentum on their side after winning nine of their last 10 games.

Luciano Spalletti's side have won seven of their eight games in the Champions League this season, losing only to Liverpool once they had already wrapped up progression through to the knockout phase, and they have kept four clean sheets along the way.

Partenopei have lost just one of 18 games when hosting across all competitions this campaign and they sealed a 2-1 victory at Milan in September.

Napoli are 9/4 to earn a first-leg lead on home soil against 6/5 AC Milan and the draw is 23/10.

Inter eyeing all-Italian last-four tie

There will be at least one Italian club in the semi-finals and Inter Milan are hoping to meet either AC Milan or Napoli. However, they need to find a way beyond Benfica.

Inter have already seen off one Portuguese club following a 1-0 aggregate win over Porto in the last-16.

If domestic form is anything to go by then Benfica, who sit eight points clear of Porto at the summit of Primeira Liga, should pose a sterner test.

The Eagles were arguably handed the easiest draw in the last-16 as they coasted to a 7-1 aggregate triumph over Club Brugge.

The two clubs played out a two-legged tie in the fourth round of the Europa League in 2003/04 when Inter came out on top.

Benfica are 5/4 to win at home when they host 2/1 Inter Milan in the first-leg and the draw is 12/5.
