Ties level after 180 minutes ...
The tie is decided on away goals, first and foremost. If the teams still can't be separated, it goes to extra time. If both teams score the same number of goals during the 30 additional minutes, away goals count double. If there are no further goals in extra time, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out (alternate takers).
How the draw worked
Two seeding pots were formed:
- Seeded teams Consisting of the 12 group winners and the four best third-ranked teams in the UEFA Champions League group stage.
- Unseeded teams Made up of the 12 group runners-up and the remaining teams transferring from the UEFA Champions League.
- No team could play a club from their group.
- No team could play a club from their own association.
