The pairings from the quarter-finals onwards were determined by an open draw in which no teams wee seeded and clubs from the same national association could be drawn against each other. The side drawn first play the first leg at home.

The semi-final fixtures were also determined as four balls containing slips of paper for 'Winners of quarter-final 1' to 'Winners of quarter-final 4' are placed in one bowl and shuffled. The first team drawn will play its first match at home against the second team drawn and the same procedure was then repeated for the other match.

An additional draw defined whether the winner of semi-final 1 or the winner of semi-final 2 will be considered, for administrative purposes, the home side in the final.
