The more the weeks go by, the more the desire for Europe grows. First of all, obviously, in the Champions League, but also in the other two competitions.
The Europa League and Conference League, on the other hand, have already finished their first rounds of knockout games and are waiting for the round of 16. We therefore now finally know the names of the 8 teams that will play in the quarterfinals of the Champions League and who will thus be able to aspire to the final of the cup, scheduled for Saturday, June 10, 2023, at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
Here then is when and with what formula the draws for the quarterfinals (and semifinals) of this edition of the Champions League will be held.
Date and time of the Champions League quarterfinal draw
Everything took place as usual at the polls in Nyon, Switzerland, on Friday, March 17, 2023. Starting at 12 (local time), there was the draw for the quarter-finals of the Champions League, which already formed the draw for the future semi-finals, and then it was the turn of those of Europe and the Conference League in order of importance.
The Champions League quarterfinal draw formula
Once past the round of 16, there were no limits for the best 8 teams in Europe. This means that starting in the quarterfinals, everyone could have met everyone—both sides from the same country and sides that had already met in the qualifying rounds. It’s a 100% open draw.
After the draw for the quarterfinals and semi-finals, another one was made to decide where on the table the team that will play the Champions League final at “home” would be.
