We speak to Paulo Sousa who explains the proceedings and he will conduct the draw.

There are four round of 16 ties still to be concluded:
Chelsea (ENG) / Bayern München (GER)
Napoli (ITA) / Barcelona (ESP)
Real Madrid (ESP) / Manchester City (ENG)
Lyon (FRA) / Juventus (ITA)
How do the draws work?
- There are three draws: for the quarter-finals; for the semi-finals, pitting together quarter-final ties; and then a third to determine the 'home' side in the final for administrative reasons.
- There are no seedings and no country protection, so teams can face opposition from the same national association.
Where will the games take place?
The final will be held at Benfica's Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica
This season's quarter-finals, semi-finals and final will be played as a straight knockout tournament in Lisbon, Portugal in August. All these ties will be single-leg fixtures. The games will be split between Benfica's Estádio do Sport Lisboa e Benfica (which will host the final) and Sporting CP's Estádio José Alvalade
