When is the draw?

The Champions League last-16 draw takes place at 11am GMT on Monday, 16 December, 2019.

How will the draw work?

Two seeding pots are formed: one consisting of the eight group winners and the other of the eight runners-up.

Group winners also get the added bonus of playing away in the first legs. At this stage, teams from the same country or group can’t face each other – but that all changes at the quarter-final stage.

Last-16 fixture dates

The first legs will be played across two weeks in February, with games on 18/19 and 25/26 of that month. The second legs will be played across two weeks in March, with games on 10/11 and 17/18.
