UNLUCKY: Brahim works his way around Barcelona goalkeeper Puig

Manchester City are through to the play-off stage of the UEFA Youth League but what does that mean?

The competition becomes increasingly complex from this point, as the teams separate from the schedule their first teams are following, and here are all the details you will need.

Current situation

City are guaranteed to finish second in Group C of the UEFA Youth League behind Barcelona. Simon Davies’ side have nine points from five matches with just the home tie with Celtic to come.

Although the winner of the group was guaranteed passage to the Round of 16, the runner-up must face one of the sides from the domestic champions path in order to qualify for that stage.

The sides on the domestic champions path are U19 teams that won their respective league but were not granted entry to the group stage as their first team did not qualify for the Champions League.

Who could City get?

The seven sides currently qualified through the domestic champions path are Ajax, Maccabi Haifa, Salzburg, Roma, Viitorul, Rosenborg and FC Midtjylland.

When is the draw?

The draw for the single leg ties will take place on Monday 12 December 2016.

When will the ties take place?

The matches will be played on either the 7 or 8 February 2017.
