City u19s' reward for topping Group E of the UEFA Youth League group stages is a home tie against FC Schalke 04.
Patrick Vieira's side will face the German outfit on either 17/18 or 24/25 February and will head into the tie full of confidence, as the only side in the competition with a 100% record from their group games.
Having notched six wins out of six, including thumping wins over Bayern Munich and Roma, racking up an astonishing 22 goals in the process, the young Blues finished in top spot in Group E to earn themselves a home tie against last year's semi-finalists.
Vieira's side will have the chance to analyse their opposition in January as the two teams meet in the Under-21 Premier League International Cup.
Should the Blues go on to progress to the quarter finals of the UEFA Youth League, they will ace either Ajax or Roma away from home and if they are to then reach the semis, will lock horns with one of Chelsea, Zenit St Petersburg, Atletico Madrid or Arsenal.
Fixture details and ticket information will be revealed on mcfc.co.uk in due course.
