The UEFA Youth League group stage was formed using the same draw that will decide the UEFA Champions League group stage, which took place in Monaco on 29 August.
Round of 16
The draw for the knockout phase takes place on 16 December and will feature the 16 clubs that finish in the top two in their group, with section winners hosting pool runners-up in single-leg ties. Teams from the same association and who were in the same group cannot be paired together.
Quarter-finals and beyond
The path for the rest of the competition is also mapped out on 16 December with open draws for the quarter-final, semi-final and final stages. All these ties will be contested as a one-off match, with both the one-leg semi-final games (11 April 2014) and the final (14 April) to be played as a four-team tournament at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland.
