The winners of Real's tie against Chelsea will proceed to face either City or Bayern in the semi-finals, throwing open the possibility of an all-English last-four tie.
That also increases the chances of seeing an Italian team reach the final for the first time since Juventus in 2017, as Inter will play either Milan or Napoli in the semi-finals should the Nerazzurri beat Benfica.
A year ago, no Serie A side made it beyond the last 16, but now Italian league leaders Napoli will face the team who won the Portuguese domestic title last season.
Napoli are the only other club left in the competition other than City who have never won the trophy, while Inter's meeting with Benfica brings together two teams who have won it five times between them.
Inter, currently second in Serie A, 18 points behind Napoli, have not reached the semi-finals since last winning the trophy under Jose Mourinho in 2010, the last victory for an Italian club in the Champions League.
The quarter-final first legs will be played on April 11 and 12. The semi-finals will be played in May with the final in Istanbul scheduled for Saturday, June 10.
