Clearing the Air – CL and Europa Rules for the Knockout Stages

For those still in the CL and Europa, I wanted to correct a couple of common misconceptions.

First and foremost, if you haven’t noticed already, every stage of the knockouts besides the final consists of two legs. The player with the greater aggregate score over the two legs progresses.

People have asked if the 4 point home advantage rule still applies and the answer is no. Given that only aggregate scores are considered, adding 4 pts to the home team would cancel out over the two legs.

*Important* Please refer to the schedule to see when the games for each round are. The CL has several blanks (to spread out the games so the final is during gw 38) so please pay careful attention to this if  you are competing in the CL. It is important to note that the round of the 16 for the CL does not start until next gw.
