TABLE TOPPERS: City U19s are top of the UEFA Youth League group.

TABLE TOPPERS: City U19s are top of the UEFA Youth League group.

Manchester City will play Inter Milan in the last 16 of the UEFA Youth League.

Our U19s have been drawn at home and will welcome the Italian outfit to the Academy Stadium in a bid to reach the quarter-finals of the competition.

Competition rules dictate the knockout stages are single-legged ties and the date of the game will be confirmed in due course.

While City qualified for the last 16 by topping Group F, with four wins one draw and a defeat against Feyenoord, Napoli and Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter reached the knock-out stages via the Domestic Champions path.

The Milan club beat Dynamo Kyiv 5-2 on aggregate in round one and followed up with an impressive 10-1 victory over two legs against Danish side, Esjberg.

I Nerazzurri drew 3-3 with Spartak Moscow in the play-off round, but held their nerve in a penalty shoot-out to progress to the knockout stages.

Simon Davies’ side have also learned what their potential route to the final will look like, with the fixtures for the quarter-finals and semi-finals also being drawn at Friday’s ceremony in Switzerland.

Should we progress, the Blues are guaranteed to have an all-English encounter in the last eight, with either Liverpool or Manchester United set to visit the Academy Stadium.

And if we emerge victorious from that, the young Blues will travel to the Colovray Stadium in Nyon for the semi-final on Friday 20 April.

Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, FC Basel and Paris Saint-Germain would be our potential opponents.
