Reigning champions Real Madrid have been pitted against two-time winners Chelsea in a blockbuster last-eight clash, following the conclusion of the quarter-final, semi-final and Final Draws for the 2022/2023 UEFA Champions League season by governing body UEFA in Nyon, Switzerland.
The tie evokes fond memories of the last two consecutive seasons, in which both sides took on each other on their way to winning the competition in 2021 (Chelsea) and in 2022 (Real Madrid).
Another mega clash will see Premier League champions Manchester City welcome Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich to the Etihad, as they continue their search to capture the Holy Grail.
Also, there is an all-Italian affair as seven-time winners AC Milan trade tackles with current Serie A table-toppers SS Napoli, while the last quarter-final fixture will see three-time kings Inter Milan take on Portuguese Primeira Liga heavyweights SL Benfica.
The path for the semi-finals and the Final was also conducted by UEFA and it will see the Winner of QF 4 (AC Milan vs SS Napoli) to take on the Winner of QF 2 (Inter Milan vs Benfica) in the first Semi-final. The second semi-final will see the Winner of QF 3 (Man City vs Bayern Munich) facing the Winner of QF 1 (Real Madrid vs Chelsea) in the second Semi-Final.
