Holders Manchester City and Premier League title rivals Arsenal will learn who they take on in the Champions League quarter-final on Friday at 1pm.

And they could be slated to square up in the draw in Nyon, Switzerland as all seeding and restrictions go out of the window at this stage of the competition.

City booked their place the final eight once again last week after sweeping aside Danish side Copenhagen 6-2 on aggregate as look to go all the way for the second time in their history.

Meanwhile, Premiership leaders and 2006 finalists Arsenal needed penalties to squeeze past two-time winners Porto in the Round of 16 earlier this week.

They will be joined by 1996 champs Borussia Dortmund after the Germans beat 1988 kings PSV Eindhoven 2-0 on Wednesday night to clinch their tie 3-1 on aggregate.

Also in midweek, three-time finalists Atletico Madrid beat three-time champs Inter Milan to make the quarters.

Kylian Mbappe and Paris St Germain will continue their quest for a maiden title, while five-time winner Barcelona, six-time champions Bayern Munich and record 14-time winners Real Madrid also lie in wait.

Find out who will face who from 1pm on Friday, in the final season of the Champions League’s current format.
