• Due to decisions of the UEFA Executive Committee, teams from Ukraine and Russia cannot meet. If the winners of the ties involving Dynamo and CSKA were drawn together in the quarter-finals, the team drawn second will be put on hold. In its place, another ball will be drawn from the bowl to complete the pairing. The team put on hold would then be moved to the next pairing and placed as the visiting team. Another ball would then be drawn from the bowl and placed as the home team of this pairing.
• If Dynamo and CSKA were still in the pot after the second to last quarter-final pairing was drawn, the team drawn as the visiting team in the second to last pairing would be directly placed as the visiting team of the last pairing. In its place, Dynamo or CSKA would be drawn to complete the second to last pairing. Then, the remaining club would be placed as the home team of the last pairing to conclude the draw.
• The semi-finals and final, which is also drawn for administrative reasons, will be held at Colovray Stadium, Nyon.
