The Champions League quarter-final has been drawn before the conclusion of the round of 16, which was halted due to the Coronavirus outbreak back in March. Second legs of the last 16 will be completed in August before the rest of the tournament begins (current scores of active games in brackets below). Here is how the teams will face-off:

QF.1: Manchester City/Real Madrid (2-1) vs Juventus/Lyon (0-1)
QF.2:
RB Leipzig vs Atletico Madrid
QF.3:
Napoli/Barcelona (1-1) vs Chelsea/Bayern Munich (0-3)
QF.4: Atalanta vs PSG

The quarter-finals will be decided in one-off matches, meaning no chances of redemption in second legs. They will also be played at neutral venues across Portugal, with teams travelling there and staying in hotels, similar to a World Cup format. 

The semis have also been drawn, with the winner of QF.1 playing the winner of QF.3. This could potentially mean an all-English semi-final between Manchester City and Chelsea.
