The matchups for the Knockout Stage are as follows:

Following the Group Stage Day 2 matches, FC Bayern, Juventus, Manchester United and FC Barcelona have successfully made it into the Semi-Finals. From Group A, FC Bayern managed to secure their place at the top of the table despite a less impressive performance last week, with one draw and one loss. FC Barcelona were able to work their way into second place after dominating FC Nantes 4-1 and drawing against FC Schalke.

Manchester United stole the top spot from Juventus in Group B, after the two teams drew 1-1 against each other in their final game of the day. While Manchester United were able to secure a 4-1 victory against Arsenal in their first match, Juventus drew their game against Celtic 1-1, costing them points. It was still enough for the Italian team to secure that vital second-place, however.
