When is the Champions League draw? Can I watch it on TV?

The other Champions League favourites Juventus take on the young and energetic Monaco and its not easy to predict this one given how Monaco are playing.

Seven-times Ligue 1 winners Lyon enjoyed their best-ever result in Europe when they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League in 2010, while Celta Vigo have never won a major European competition.

"They played great in the tie against Bayern Munich and are a worthy semi-finalist".

"But I am convinced we will have a derby in the semi-finals".

Barca teammate Sergi Roberto - who scored the stunning victor against PSG in the prior round as the Spanish winners overturned a four-goal deficit - included: "The fans got behind us until the final minute, like another player, we wanted their support to turn the tie around". It's going to be a few minutes before the draw actually starts.

The Champions League final is on June 3.

But neutrals would probably prefer not to see a rerun of the 2014 and 2016 finals, when Real beat Atletico both times, in 2014 in extra time and previous year on penalties in a tight and unremarkable affair that was quickly forgotten.

The first legs will be played on Thursday, 4 May. We thank them for their support and we fought until the finish.

"I would like to congratulate them for the Champions League they have done, because it is something to admire".

Captain Andres Iniesta refused to dwell on Barcelona's Champions League removal as he turned his focus on Real Madrid and keeping the LaLiga title.

But while most eyes are on the main competition, there is still all to play for in the Europa League too.

"I want Barcelona to go through and it would be very good with three Spanish teams in semi-finals".

The draw takes place on Friday in Nyon, at 11am BST.

"Barcelona come into it on the back of their Champions League elimination, but that will be behind them by the time they take to the field".
