How did the draw work?
Two seeding pots were formed: one consisting of the eight group winners (seeded teams) and the other of the eight runners-up (unseeded teams). No team could be drawn against a club from their group or any side from their own association.
Seeded group winners were drawn away in the round of 16 first legs and at home in the return matches.
Anything else I should know?
No away goals
The away goals rule has been abolished. If the tie is level after 180 minutes, it goes to extra time. If the teams still can't be separated after an additional 30 minutes, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out.
Each club can register a maximum three new players for the remaining matches by midnight CET on 2 February 2021. Players are allowed to have played for another club in the UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League but there are restrictions on the number of 'List A' players.
