UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals: Meet the Teams

The contenders for the 2022/23 Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League title are down to just eight teams after the Round of 16 came to a close this past Wednesday. The draws for the quarter-finals and semifinals have been finalized as of Friday, March 17, with many of Europe’s big hitters still alive in the competition, including the defending champions of England, Spain, Italy, and Germany. Not to mention, three of the eight quarter-finalists will be made up of Italian teams for the first time since 2006.  

The draw for the Champions League always evokes mixed emotions, and this year is no different. This season, though, the six games will be compressed into a nine-week spell (which itself is interrupted by an international break) to be completed before the World Cup. The first legs of the quarter-final will take place April 11-12, with the return legs held April 18-19. The semifinals will be staged May 9-10 and May 16-17, with the final held on June 10 at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, home of the Turkish national team. For further details on the time and match fixtures, refer to the charts below.
