NYON: Manchester City will face either Lyon or Juventus in the quarter-final of the Champions League if they get past Real Madrid.
Pep Guardiola’s side hold a 2-1 advantage from their round of 16 first leg clash and were involved in the draw for the remainder of the tournament on Friday.
UEFA previously confirmed that the culmination of this year’s Champions League will be played out as an eight-team tournament in Lisbon. The eight teams remaining in the competition will take part in a straight knockout tournament between August 12 and 23.
The four remaining last 16 second leg matches, including Manchester City v Real Madrid, will take place on August 7 and 8.
Should City get past Madrid and Lyon or Juventus, they could face Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the semi-final. Elsewhere, Leipzig take on Atletico Madrid while Atalanta face PSG.
In the Europa League Manchester United and Wolves could potentially meet in an all-English Europa League semi-final.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are all but through having won 5-0 at LASK in the first leg of their last-16 tie and United would face Copenhagen or Istanbul Basaksehir in the single-leg quarter-finals.
Wolves would play Roma or Sevilla in the quarter-finals if they overcome Olympiakos, who they drew 1-1 with in the first leg in Greece.
Should both Premier League sides progress to the semi-finals, the pair would do battle to decide who makes the August 21 final.
Wolves’ path to that point looks harder than that of United, while Rangers are on the other half of the draw.
Steven Gerrard’s men will face Inter Milan or Getafe in the quarter-finals if they manage an almighty last-16 comeback against Bayer Leverkusen, who secured a 3-1 win at Ibrox in March.
Shakhtar Donetsk or Wolfsburg face Basel or Frankfurt in the other quarter-final of a competition that will be hosted in Germany from August 10.
UEFA has given the green light for the round-of-16 second legs to be played on August 5 and 6 at home teams’ stadiums.
Inter Milan and Getafe, and Sevilla and Roma both had their Europa League last-16 first legs postponed, so those ties will be completed as a single leg in Germany before the tournament gets under way.
Duisburg, Dusseldorf, Gelsenkirchen and Cologne will be the host venues for the mini-tournament, with the latter hosting the final.
