Champions League 2022-23 Quarter Final Draw
In what promises to be an exciting round of matches, the 2022-2023 Champions League quarter final draw has thrown up some fascinating fixtures. The draw took place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland earlier today and produced some mouth-watering clashes.
The pick of the quarter final ties is undoubtedly the clash between Manchester City and Bayern Munich. The two sides have been among the most consistent performers in Europe in recent years and will be looking to take a big step towards the final with a win in this tie. Manchester City, managed by Pep Guardiola, have been in scintillating form this season and will be looking to win their first Champions League title. Bayern Munich, on the other hand, have a rich history in the competition and will be looking to add to their five European Cups.
In another exciting tie, Inter Milan will take on Benfica. The Italian side have been in excellent form this season and will be looking to continue their fine run of form against the Portuguese giants. Benfica, who won the competition in 1961 and 1962, will be hoping to cause an upset and book their place in the semi-finals.
The all-Italian clash between Napoli and AC Milan is another intriguing fixture. The two sides have already met twice in Serie A this season, with Napoli coming out on top on both occasions. However, AC Milan will be hoping to turn the tables in the Champions League and secure their place in the last four.
The final quarter final tie sees Real Madrid take on Chelsea. The Spanish giants, who have won the competition a record 14 times, will be looking to continue their excellent form in the competition. However, they will face a tough test against Chelsea, who won the Champions League in 2012 and have been in fine form this season.
The quarter final matches will take place over two legs, with the first leg scheduled to take place on April 11 and 12, and the second leg on April 18 and 19. The winners of the quarter final ties will progress to the semi-finals, with the final set to take place on June 10 at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey.
