Well, there really aren’t any. It’s a simple draw of this team plays that team. There is no restriction for certain teams playing each other as we’ve seen in the past, for example teams from Russia and Ukraine. There is also no restriction of teams from the same country playing each other. In the round of 16, teams from the same country couldn’t be paired, but now they can. The four English teams may end up being paired with another each other if the chips fall the right way.
When are the games?
The first legs will be played on April 9 and 10, and the second legs will fall on April 16 and 17.
