What are the draw rules?

The eight group winners will be paired with the eight runners-up to form the matches for the round of 16. Teams will play the club they are paired with home and away for the right to move on to the quarterfinals. Teams that were in the same group in the group stage, such as PSG and Manchester City, cannot be drawn against each other in the round of 16. Teams from the same country also cannot be drawn against one another, so for example, Juventus cannot be drawn against Inter Milan.
