Which teams are in the pot for the Champions League quarter-finals draw?

The identity of the hat-to-hat teams for the Champions League quarter-finals draw was finalized when the last 16 matches ended on March 17.

The qualified teams can be seen in the table below.

This is an open draw, meaning there is no ranking in place and the national protections that were in place for the last 16 will not apply.

So, for example, we could potentially see a Klassiker quarter-final involving Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund or a Premier League clash between Manchester City and Liverpool.
