Uefa president Aleksander Ceferin admitted that “things change rapidly,” in a briefing last month. And now UEFA has confirmed that unplayed round-of-16 second legs will be held either at the club’s home ground or a venue assigned by them.
Sides can also register a maximum of three new ‘List A’ players, but each squad is still limited to 25 List A players, and players must have been already registered an also, qualified to play for the club at a residential level since 3 February.
And similar to the Premier League, teams will be able to make five substitutions a game but will only be allowed to make these changes at three points in the game.
These three events do exclude changes at half-time, between the finish of ordinary playing time and extra-time, and at half-time during additional time. One additional substitution may also be allowed during extra-time. A total of 23 players will be allowed on a teamsheet for games instead of 18, something usually only permitted for the final.
Both Chelsea and Manchester City are still alive and kicking in this season’s competition and have the second-leg of their respective last-16 ties against Bayern Munich and Real Madrid still to play.
