Champions League: All you need to know about Round of 16 draw

The 16 teams left in the Champions League will discover their next opponents on Monday.

Premier League sides like Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester City and Tottenham have secured their places in the next round.

The draw will be held at 11am on Monday, November 7, at the House of European Football at UEFA headquarters in Switzerland.

How does the draw work?

The eight group winners will be seeded for the last 16. Which means they will each be drawn against one of the eight runners-up from the group stages.

And just like in the group-stage draw, no side can play another team from their own country. So there’ll be no all-England last-16 matches.

In each tie, the seeded side will be drawn away from home in the first leg, and play their second leg on home soil.

When will the games be played?

The first legs of the last-16 games will be played on the midweeks of February 14-15, and February 21-22 2023.

The second legs will be played across March 7-8 and March 14-15.

Beyond the last 16…

However, for those sides lucky enough to reach the quarter-finals, it’s a free for all from then on – with no restrictions on who can draw one another.

The draw for the last eight and the semi-finals will be held on March 17. With the quarter-final first legs held on April 11-12 and the second legs on April 18-19.

The first legs of the semi-finals will be held on May 9-10, and the second legs on May 16-17. The Champions League final will then be held in Istanbul on June 10.
