The draw for the quarterfinal and semi-finals of the 2019-20 UEFA Champions League will be made at 11 a.m. GMT / 6 a.m. ET on Friday, March. 20.

In the draws for the quarter-finals and semi-finals, the teams are no longer seeded or divided into pots. This means that teams from the same group or the same association can be drawn against each other. As the draws for the quarterfinals and semi-finals are held together before the quarterfinals are played, the identity of the quarter-final winners is not known at the time of the semi-final draw.

A separate draw is held following quarter-final and semi-final draws to determine which semi-final winner is designated as the "home" team for the final (for administrative purposes as it is played at a neutral venue).

For the quarterfinals and semi-finals, teams from the same city are not scheduled to play at home on the same day or on consecutive days, due to logistics and crowd control. To avoid such scheduling conflict, if the two teams are drawn to play at home for the same leg, the order of legs of the tie involving the team with the lower domestic ranking in the qualifying season is reversed from the original draw.[

Qualified as group winners: Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Liverpool, Manchester City, Paris Saint-Germain, RB Leipzig, Valencia

Qualified as group runners-up: Atalanta, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Chelsea, Lyon, Napoli, Real Madrid, Tottenham Hotspur

The final will take place in Spain at Ataturk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey. on Saturday, May 30.
