Champions League draw, tournament rules

No club from the same national association can meet, and teams which have already met in the group stage cannot be regrouped either.

The last 16 games are played over two matches, with the seeded team playing at home in the second leg.

The first games of the last 16 games will be on February 15, 16, 22 or 23 and the return games on March 8, 9, 15 or 16 and ALL will kick off at 3 p.m. ET.

The away goals no longer exist. Any draw after 180 minutes of play will be extended, regardless of the number of goals scored in each match. If another 30 minutes does not produce a clear winner, the penalties will decide.

What’s the next step in the Champions League program?

The draw for the quarter-finals, semi-finals and finals will take place on March 18.

The final 16 draws, quarter-finals and semi-finals lead all teams to Gazprom Arena in St. Petersburg, which will host the 2021-22 Champions League on May 28.
