Four of the eight Champions League quarter-finalists are already known, with Manchester City’s high-profile stumble upon with Real Madrid one of the ties nevertheless to be concluded.

In the Europa League, scheduling is more difficult due to the fact all eight last-16 second-leg ties are nonetheless to be played, with two matches, involving Spanish and Italian teams, but to play the first legs.
