The 2017–18 UEFA Champions League knockout phase began on 13 February and ended on 26 May 2018 with the final at the NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium in Kiev, Ukraine, to decide the champions of the 2017–18 UEFA Champions League.[1] A total of 16 teams competed in the knockout phase.[2]

Times are CET/CEST,[note 1] as listed by UEFA (local times are in parentheses).

Round and draw dates[edit]

The schedule of the knockout phase was as follows (all draws are held at the UEFA headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland).[1]

Round of 16 11 December 2017 13–14 & 20–21 February 2018 6–7 & 13–14 March 2018
Quarter-finals 16 March 2018 3–4 April 2018 10–11 April 2018
Semi-finals 13 April 2018 24–25 April 2018 1–2 May 2018
Final 26 May 2018 at NSC Olimpiyskiy Stadium, Kiev

Format[edit]

The knockout phase involves the 16 teams which qualify as winners and runners-up of each of the eight groups in the group stage.

Each tie in the knockout phase, apart from the final, is played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that scores more goals on aggregate over the two legs advance to the next round. If the aggregate score is level, the away goals rule is applied, i.e. the team that scored more goals away from home over the two legs advances. If away goals are also equal, then thirty minutes of extra time is played. The away goals rule is again applied after extra time, i.e. if there are goals scored during extra time and the aggregate score is still level, the visiting team advances by virtue of more away goals scored. If no goals are scored during extra time, the tie is decided by penalty shoot-out. In the final, which is played as a single match, if scores are level at the end of normal time, extra time is played, followed by penalty shoot-out if scores remain tied.[2]

The mechanism of the draws for each round is as follows:

  • In the draw for the round of 16, the eight group winners are seeded, and the eight group runners-up are unseeded. The seeded teams are drawn against the unseeded teams, with the seeded teams hosting the second leg. Teams from the same group or the same association cannot be drawn against each other.
  • In the draws for the quarter-finals onwards, there are no seedings, and teams from the same group or the same association can be drawn against each other.
