Two teams from Spain and one apiece from Germany and Portugal will contest the UEFA Youth League semi-finals in Nyon, Switzerland, next month.
Domestic rivals FC Barcelona and Real Madrid CF will play in opposite last-four ties to one another, raising the possibility of an all-Spanish showpiece when the inaugural competition reaches its climax over three days at the Colovray Stadium in mid-April.
Like the single-leg knockout games before them, the semi-finals – which will also feature FC Schalke 04 and SL Benfica – and final will be decided by penalty kicks should a match be level after 90 minutes. The overall winners will receive the Lennart Johansson Trophy, UEFA's newest piece of silverware, which is named after the governing body's Swedish honorary president.
