Just eight teams are left in this season's Champions League and, for the first time in years, the tournaments looks to be wide open.

Four English teams are still remaining in the tournament, with Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur all still in contention.

Both City and Spurs coasted into the last eight. Tottenham stunned German side Borussia Dortmund 4-0 over two legs, while Pep Guardiola's City annihilated Schalke 10-2.

Manchester United meanwhile progressed in more dramatic circumstances. After losing the first leg of their tie with Paris Saint-Germain 2-0, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side battled back to win 3-1 in the French capital, to progress on away goals.

And Liverpool beat Bayern Munich on the road to keep alive their hopes of going one better than last season. Here is everything you need to know about the forthcoming draw.
