How will the draws work?

There are no seedings or country protection as the sides drawn first will play the first leg at home.

However, Arsenal and Chelsea cannot play at home on the same night following a decision made by the relevant local authorities.

Should both clubs be drawn at home in the same week, the team having finished lower in the domestic league the previous season – in this case Arsenal – will be reversed in accordance with the Uefa Club Competitions Committee principles.

Any potential reversal for the semi-finals, for the same reason, would be confirmed after the quarter-finals.

When do matches kick-off?

The quarter-finals, semi-finals and final all kick off at 21:00CET. Exceptions to this rule can be made by the Uefa administration.
