Everything you need to know about the Champions League, Europa League and Conference League quarter-finals

The quarter-final draws for the Champions League, Europa League and Europa Conference League have been made, with the eight remaining teams in each competition knowing their potential routes to the final.

We have previewed each tie and analysed past results in a comprehensive guide of what to expect from now until the trophies are handed out.

Champions League

This year’s Champions League quarter-finalists have won Europe’s premier club competition on 34 occasions between them.

Real Madrid – tournament winners in five of the past nine seasons – have the best win rate against the teams remaining, earning victory in 19 of 34 matches since 2003-04. That said, they have won just one out of their last four meetings with opponents Chelsea.

Manchester City’s clash with Bayern Munich is arguably the tie of the round, with City manager Pep Guardiola up against his former club.

City’s Erling Haaland is the top scorer this season with 10 goals – five of which came in a 7-0 win over Leipzig in the previous round.

However, Napoli’s attack is arguably the most potent, with four players in the top 10 for goals and assists per 90 minutes.

The Serie A leaders are tipped as potential Champions League winners, with their route to the final consisting of a clash with AC Milan – who they have already beaten this season – and then a meeting with Inter or Benfica.

The Portuguese outfit have failed to record a single victory over the other seven quarter-finalists in the past 20 years.

Europa League

Seven different countries are represented in the last eight of the Europa League.

The two favourites, Juventus and Manchester United, are set to meet in the semi-finals, should they overcome Sporting and Sevilla respectively.

Both have won at least half of their matches against the other quarter-finalists, although United are yet to beat Sevilla in three attempts.

In the remaining quarter-finals, Belgian side Union SG – appearing in European competition for the first time since the mid-1960s – face Xabi Alonso’s Leverkusen, while a youthful Feyenoord take on Jose Mourinho’s Roma.

The latter tie is especially intriguing, with Roma facing a tough task against Eredivisie leaders Feyenoord – who in Santiago Gimenez, Oussama Idrissi and Alireza Jahanbakhsh boast three of the top 10 attackers remaining in the competition.

Europa Conference League

The Europa Conference League is anyone’s to win, with none of the quarter-finalists having lifted a European trophy this century.

West Ham have put their domestic woes to one side in Europe this season, winning all eight matches – having also reached the Europa League semis last term.

Despite their Premier League form, David Moyes’ side will be strong favourites to get past Gent and face one of Anderlecht or AZ in the semi-finals.

Italy’s Fiorentina – who the Hammers cannot meet until the final – appear to be the main threat to their aspirations of silverware.

The Serie A outfit are expected to cruise past Lech Poznan, with an attack containing the tournament’s highest scorer in Luka Jovic (six goals) and its number one creator in Christian Kouame (five assists).

If they were to reach the last four, they would face either Basel or Nice.
