This season's Champions League Round of 16 ties will soon be determined, after which the focus will swing to the draw for the next phase of the tournament.

Manchester City and Arsenal from the Premier League could still be in Europe's elite competition as it reaches the quarter-final stage. They are currently contesting ties against Barcelona and Monaco respectively.

The draw for the quarter-final will take place in Nyon at 11am on Friday March 20.

At this stage of the competition, the draw will be 'open', meaning there will be no seeded teams and sides from the same country and who progressed from the same group may play against each other.

The side drawn first will play the first leg of the tie at home. Those first-legs will be played on April 14 and 15, whilst the second-legs will be played a week later on 21 and 22 April.

Whilst in previous years the draw for the semi-final has been made at the same time, this season that won't be the case and a draw involving the final four teams in the competition will be made on April 24.
