Liverpool still 'not at their best' in win over Bayern (1:34)

Steve Nicol credits Liverpool for their return to the final eight of the Champions League, despite not playing to the high standard they set last season. (1:34)

The draw for the quarterfinals and semifinals of the 2018-19 Champions League will be made at 11 a.m. GMT / 7 a.m. ET on Friday, March 15.

There is no seeding or country protection, and that means teams from the same national association can face each other.

The first legs will take place on April 9 and 10 with the return legs the following week.

The semifinals first legs are due to take place on April 30 and May 1, and the week after will be the second legs.

UEFA has reverted to holding the draws for both the quarterfinals and semifinals on the same date.

The final will take place in Spain at Atletico Madrid's Estadio Metropolitano on Saturday, June 1.
