Sixteen teams have progressed from the group stage and that will soon be reduced to eight, with last-16 ties set to take place in February and March. So with the quarter-final on the horizon, Goal takes a look at when the draw is, who is involved and more. When is the Champions League quarter-final draw? The draw for the Champions League quarter-final will take place on March 15, with events scheduled to get started at 11am GMT (6am ET). It will be held two days after the conclusion of the final last 16 games, which take place on March 13.
Unlike the draw for the last 16, there are no seedings and there are no restrictions prohibiting teams from the same country facing off. We will know the identities of the eight teams involved in the draw come March 15, but right now it remains very much undecided. Reigning champions Real Madrid have been paired with Ajax in the last 16, which may seem like a favourable draw, but it should be noted that the Dutch outfit came through their group unbeaten, beating and drawing twice with Bayern Munich. Borussia Dortmund will have to navigate their way past Tottenham, and Roma - who reached the semi-finals last season - will need to beat Portuguese outfit Porto.

John Robertson's side have now lost 11 goals in the final 10 minutes of matches this term. "We've felt like this a few times this season," Doran added. Josh Mullin kept Ross County in the Scottish Cup with a late equaliser to deny Caley Thistle. Mullin struck in stoppage-time, just as it looked like Brad Mckay's goal was enough to put Caley Thistle in the draw for the last eight.
Caley Thistle countered immediately through Doran, as he teed up Polworth and then Tom Walsh, with Fox clawing the ball away from the far corner. The final chances of the first period both went to Walsh, who was beaten to a Doran through ball by Fox and saw a goal-bound volley blocked by Kenny van der Weg. Inverness started the second half brightly and Fox was called into action five minutes in, repelling a low drive from Tremarco with his legs. The equaliser opened the game up with chances at both ends, as Doran nicked a header from Jordan White from Sean Welsh's cross, which went wide, and Lewis Spence angled a ball across the face of goal that went unrewarded. Inverness restored their lead with 25 minutes to go, with Polworth's corner evading everyone until it reached Mckay at the back post, with the defender able to take a touch before rifling into the roof of the net. A place in the last eight looked to have passed County by but Mullin delivered in stoppage-time, driving through Ridgers' legs to level.
