Juventus and Salzburg are the first teams into the UEFA Youth League finals at Nyon’s Colovray Stadium on 22 and 25 April.
Juventus defeated Liverpool 2-0 on Tuesday and a day later 2017 champions Salzburg came from behind to win 3-1 at Paris Saint-Germain. Salzburg will learn their opponents shortly as first-time quarter-finalists Borussia Dortmund take on Atlético with one to make a maiden last-four tie.
Wednesday 16 March
- Paris led in the opening seconds through Edouard Michut but Oumar Diakite levelled late in the first half and with 18 minutes left Roko Šimić (son of Dario) saw his shot deflect in via the woodwork off Louis Mouquet before substitute Luka Reischl clinched victory in added time.
- Salzburg were 2016/17 winners and that season beat Paris 5-0 in the round of 16 on their way to victory.
- Dortmund, hosting the game at their main club stadium, are in their first quarter-final; they lost home and away to Atlético in the 2018/19 group stage.
- Atlético, who knocked out holders Real Madrid, have lost all three of their past quarter-finals to eventual tournament winners (Chelsea in 2014/15, Salzburg in 2016/17 and Barcelona in 2017/18).
Tuesday 15 March
- Fabio Miretti and Ange Chibozo both struck in a three-minute period minute midway through the second half to send first-time quarter-finalists Juve to Nyon.
- The only previous Italian semi-finalists were Roma in 2014/15.
Dynamo Kyiv/Sporting CP vs Benfica
- Neither Dynamo nor Sporting have previously reached the quarter-finals.
- Benfica are three-time runners-up, and are equalling Real Madrid’s record of six quarter-final appearances.
No extra time
Matches in the quarter-finals are all played as single-leg knockout matches. If the teams are level at full time, there is no extra time, with games being determined by a penalty shoot-out.
