Dutch draw for Under-19s

Chelsea Under-19s will host Feyenoord in the UEFA Youth League round of 16 later this month following today’s draw in Nyon.

The Dutch youngsters were runners-up to Manchester City in the group stage, losing just one of their six fixtures, before coming from behind to beat the Slovakian side FC Nitra 3-2 in the play-off round.

We were winners of the competition in both 2015 and 2016, though were unable to participate last season due to the first team’s absence from the UEFA Champions League. However, our return under manager Joe Edwards has been impressive, with only Barcelona accumulating more points in the group stage.

The altered format this campaign meant that the last-16 draw was unseeded and without country protection. The draw in full is outlined below.

Ties are one-legged and scheduled to be played on 20/21 February. Further fixture information will be announced on this website shortly.

The path to the final was also mapped out in Nyon, handing the Blues a possible trip to either Bayern Munich or Real Madrid in the quarter-finals.
