When is the Champions League quarter-final draw? Bayern Munich, Real Madrid and Leicester discover their next opponents

Manchester City hope they will not be on the end of another spectacular European comeback as they bid to win their place in the Champions League quarter-finals next week.

City take a 5-3 lead to Monaco for their last-16 second leg but will be wary of the impossible becoming possible after watching Barcelona’s heroics earlier this week.

The Catalans required three goals at the death to secure the most dramatic turnaround in European football history and book their place in the quarter-finals.

City will hope to join them, while Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund also have their places reserved in the hat.
