ESPN FC By ESPN staff Share Tweet less than a minute ago Champions League draw: When is the draw for the quarterfinals?

The Sweeper is all about Barcelona's historic Champions League night, which may go down as the best of all time.
Gianni Infantino says the incredible comeback by Barca in the UCL shows that changes to the game shouldn't be made hastily.
Commentators from around the world try and put Barcelona's last gasp UCL winner against PSG into words.

After their dramatic win over PSG, Barcelona will have to wait a week to learn their opponents in the quarterfinals of the 2016-17 Champions League.

UEFA will conduct the draw for the quarterfinals from Nyon, Switzerland, at 11 a.m. GMT / 6 a.m. ET on Friday, March 17.

The eight teams who came through the round of 16 will be drawn into four ties.

Beginning with this round, teams from the same country can be drawn against each other, and they are no longer seeded based on their group-stage performance.

This means the teams already through: Germany's Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, as well as Spain's Barcelona and Real Madrid, could face their rivals from their own nations.

The other four teams will be decided on March 14-15, after the second legs between Manchester City and Monaco, Porto and Juventus, Bayer Leverkusen and Atletico Madrid, and Sevilla and Leicester City.

The Champions League quarterfinal first legs will take place on April 11-12, with the second legs to follow on April 18-19.
