UEFA Youth League: round of 16 form guide

The last 16 continues on Tuesday with six teams attempting to join FC Barcelona, who defeated FC København 4-1 in the first round of 16 tie, in the quarter-finals.

Following FC Barcelona's 4-1 defeat of FC København in the opening round of 16 tie, the UEFA Youth League returns next Tuesday with three more matches.

Barcelona became the first side through to the quarter-finals, which take place in mid-March, after coming from a goal down against their Danish visitors at the Mini Estadi.

All ties from this point consist of single legs. The draw for the knockout stage was made in December, with the semi-finals and final to be played as part of a four-team tournament at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on 11 and 14 April.
