English hopes rest on Liverpool

Liverpool will be the only English side on the second half of the draw. The other side includes Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham.

The winner of the first semi will play the winner of the second semi

The winner of the first semi-final (Tottenham, Manchester City, Barcelona or Manchester United) will play the winner of the second semi-final (Ajax, Juventus, Liverpool or Porto). That final will be played on June 1 at Atletico Madrid's Wanda Metropolitano.

Manchester United v Barcelona dates to be swapped

Due to Manchester City and Manchester United's respective clashes being scheduled for the same day, UEFA rulings mean that United will instead play their first leg against Barcelona at home.

The second semi-final

The second semi-final will be played between the winner of quarter-final no. 4 (Barcelona or Manchester United) and the winner of quarter final no. 2 (Liverpool or Porto).

The first semi-final

Winner of quarter final no. 3 (Tottenham or Manchester City) will play the winner of quarter final no. 1 (Ajax v Juventus) in the first semi-final.
