The date for Manchester City’s UEFA Youth League last 16 clash away to FC Mainz 05 has been confirmed.

Brian Barry Murphy’s side will travel to Germany later this month with the one-off game at the Stadion Am Bruchweg to take place on Tuesday, February 27 with kick-off confirmed for 18.00pm (local time), 17.00pm (UK).

City secured passage to the knockout stages in impressive fashion by topping our group after an unbeaten run across fixtures with Red Star Belgrade Under-19s, RB Leipzig Under-19s and Young Boys of Berne.

Mainz came through the domestic champions path and are into the round of 16 after a dramatic 6-5 win on penalties against Barcelona Under-19s earlier this week after the sides had drawn 2-2.

Should we be successful against Mainz, City would then be at home in the quarter-finals with either AZ Alkmaar or FC Porto the prospective opponents.
