Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund will find out which teams will join them in the Champions League semi-final draw on Wednesday after the two remaining quarter-final ties between Barcelona and Paris Saint-German and Juventus and Bayern Munich are settled.

The semi-final draw will take place on Friday at 1100BST at Uefa’s headquarters in Nyon. The draw will be conducted by Uefa secretary-general Gianni Infantino and competitions director Giorgio Marchetti, joined by three-time tournament top scorer, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, who has been designated to picking the teams’ names from the pot.

The first legs of the semi-finals will be played on Tuesday 23 and Wednesday 24 April, with the return legs to be held on Tuesday 30 April and Wednesday 1 May.

None of the semi-finalists will be seeded at this stage and teams from the same country can now be drawn to meet.

For administrative reasons, Friday’s draw will also determine which of the winners from both semi-finals will be considered the local team – in other words, the team which will wear their home strip in the final, which will be played at Wembley in London on Saturday 25 May.
