All 16 teams left in the inaugural UEFA Youth League know the potential route to the final that awaits them following the draw for the knockout phase in Nyon today.
All ties from this point onwards consist of single legs. Chelsea FC, the only side in the group stage to collect the maximum 18 points, will bid for a seventh successive European victory against AC Milan, coached by former Rossoneri striker and two-time UEFA Champions League winner Filippo Inzaghi. FC Barcelona, who like Chelsea qualified as early as matchday four, host FC København in the round of 16.
While country protection was in place for the last 16, the path through the rest of the competition was paved with open draws. The semi-finals and final will be played as part of a four-team tournament at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland, on 11 and 14 April.
