Pep Guardiola and his Manchester City players have now discovered their fate in the last-eight of this season’s UEFA Champions League following Friday morning’s draw.

Manchester City are bidding to retain their European crown this season having reached the quarter-final stages of the competition for a seventh successive campaign, after a thumping 6-2 aggregate win over FC Copenhagen in the last-16.

Victories at both Parken and the Etihad Stadium booked the Sky Blues’ place in the quarter-final stage, with Pep Guardiola’s side still unbeaten in this season’s competition, following consecutive 3-1 wins.

City, who could still reach both the Champions League and FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium this season, reached the quarter-final stages alongside Arsenal, Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
