NextGen Series back under way - Here are the fixtures and dates for the final 16 ties

Chuba Akpom

Aston Villa, Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Chelsea fans take a look at when your young stars will be in action across Europe in the coming weeks.

With Aston Villa in action later today we thought we should bring you the updated fixtures for the last 16 of the competition including the dates and locations.

Each of the 16 teams who qualified were ranked from the best to last with the top eight playing the bottom eight seeds in chronological order (1v16, 2v15 etc.)

The top eight seeds then get the privilege of playing at home in the second round. Unfortunately in order to comply with the domestic fixture list the NextGen organisers do not have the luxury of time for a two-legged fixture so in the circumstances this is the fairest way to get the best eight young teams in Europe through to the quarter-finals.

This format has not leant itself favourably to the English teams left in the competition as all five, Aston Villa, Chelsea, Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham, are seeded in the bottom half of the pool meaning they will have to travel and win in order to make it through.

Here is the draw for the final 16…
