City’s clash with Dortmund will represent in-demand forward Erling Haaland’s first visit to the Etihad Stadium.
The Norway international is a transfer target for several of Europe’s top sides, and his father, Alf-Inge, played for City.
Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane is looking to become the first manager to win the competition on four occasions, but he will have to overcome Liverpool, whom Los Blancos beat in the 2018 final.
Jurgen Klopp’s side recovered to win the trophy the next season.
Bayern boss Hansi Flick could become the second manager of a men’s side to retain the Champions League after Zidane achieved the feat with Madrid, while PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino will be hoping to go one better, having seen his Tottenham Hotspur lose the final to Liverpool in 2019.
Thomas Tuchel, who led PSG to the final last season, will fancy his side’s chances against Porto, though Chelsea should be wary after the Portuguese side overcame Juventus in the round of 16.
Chelsea and Liverpool met each other in five consecutive seasons in the Champions League from 2005 to 2009, but, should both make it to the semifinal, it would be their first encounter in the competition since.
Only two of the remaining teams are top of the table in their domestic leagues, with La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid having been knocked out in the round of 16.
City and PSG are the only sides left in the competition who have never won the Champions League, though the French side did reach the final last season and will be looking to build on that.
The quarterfinal first legs will be played on April 6/7 with the returns on April 13/14, and the first semifinals will be on April 27/28 with second legs to take place on May 4/5.
The final will be played in the Turkish city of Istanbul on May 29.

The UEFA Champions League quarterfinal and semi-final draws took place on Friday with some huge ties being served up by Hamit Altintop in Nyon, Switzerland.
The pick of the quarterfinals is arguably the rematch between last season’s finalists Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, but competition is fierce with Manchester City up against Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid paired with Liverpool.
5 – Bayern Munich are the team Paris have defeated the most in their history in European competition (5).
However, PSG have only won one of their last four matches against the Bavarian club (3 defeats), that was on September 2017 (3-0).

Chelsea will probably feel happiest with their draw against FC Porto, but there are no easy ties at this point with a number of strong sides having already fallen by the wayside.
All eyes will be on Erling Haaland as he returns to England and the club where his father Alf-Inge played for three years while PSG go up against Hansi Flick’s champions with a new head coach in Mauricio Pochettino.

Real and Liverpool is a meeting of two historical giants who have not had it easy this season while Thomas Tuchel will be plotting a return to the final with Chelsea after leading PSG there last summer.
In the semi-finals, Bayern or PSG will meet the winner of City against Dortmund and Real or Liverpool will come up against Porto or Chelsea to decided the finalists with Bayern, PSG, City or Dortmund destined to be the home team in the ultimate Istanbul final.
The drama was not limited to the Champions League either, with the Europa League quarterfinals delivering some big names too — AFC Ajax against AS Roma arguably the pick of the ties there.
Underdogs Granada got Manchester United at home for the first leg while Slavia Prague drew Arsenal away and Dinamo Zagreb’s reward for dumping out Tottenham Hotspur was Europa League specialist Unai Emery’s Villarreal.
The winner of Granada against United could face Ajax or Roma while Dinamo or Villarreal will come up against Arsenal or Slavia on the side of the draw that will ultimately produce the home team for the final.
