Format[edit]

In the knock-out stage, the 16 teams play a single-elimination tournament. In the quarter-finals and semi-finals, each tie is played on a home-and-away two-legged basis, while in the round of 16 and final, each tie is played as a single match. The away goals rule (for two-legged ties), extra time (away goals do not apply in extra time) and penalty shoot-out are used to decide the winner if necessary.[1]

Schedule[edit]

The schedule of each round is as follows.[2]

Round First leg Second leg
Round of 16 13–14 May 2014
Quarter-finals 19 August 2014 26 August 2014
Semi-finals 16 September 2014 30 September 2014
Final 18 October 2014

Bracket[edit]

In the round of 16, the winners of one group played the runners-up of another group in the same zone, with the group winners hosting the match.[1] The matchups were determined as follows:

The draw for the quarter-finals was held on 28 May 2014, 15:00 UTC+8, at the AFC House in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.[3] Teams from different zones could be drawn into the same tie, and the "country protection" rule was applied, so teams from the same association could not be drawn into the same tie.

There was no draw for the semi-finals, with the matchups determined by the quarter-final draw: Winner QF1 vs. Winner QF2 and Winner QF3 vs. Winner QF4, with winners QF2 and QF4 hosting the second leg.

The draw to decide the host team of the final was held after the quarter-final draw.[3]
