When are they?
The draws take place at UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on Friday 20 March. The live stream will begin here at 13:00 CET.
Who is involved?
The quarter-final and semi-final draws feature the eight round of 16 winners, with those teams confirmed on 19 March.
How do the draws work?
- There are three draws: for the quarter-finals; for the semi-finals, pitting together quarter-final ties; and then a third to determine the 'home' side in the final for administrative reasons.
- There are no seedings and no country protection, so teams can face opposition from the same national association.
- Further restrictions will be confirmed before the draws.
