What was the draw format?

The draw comprised of 12 group winners, 12 group runners-up and eight third-placed sides from the Champions League who dropped into the Europa League knockout phase.

The clubs were split into two pots, with the 12 group winners and the four teams with the best Champions League record all seeded.

No team can play a club from their Europa League group or a side from the same national association at this stage, meaning there is no all-Premier League tie just yet.

The ties will take place over two legs, with the seeded teams at home in the second legs.

What are the key dates

February 18 & 25, 2021: Round of 32
March 11 & 18, 2021: Round of 16
April 8 & 15, 2021: Quarter-finals
April 29 & May 6, 2021: Semi-finals
