The senior squad was not the only Chelsea side to learn their next European opponent today, as the UEFA youth league draw was held this morning as well. Chelsea have been paired with Serie A side AC Milan, with a single leg tie to be held on one of February 18, 19, 25, or 26.
The date and venue are yet to be determined, but we do know that Chelsea will be the home side. The eight group winners will all be hosting the single-leg ties, so we'll likely see a match at either Brentford or Stamford Bridge.
Should Chelsea advance to the quarterfinal, they'd again find themselves as the host. They're slated to face the winner of the tie between Real Sociedad and Schalke should they get by the Italian side. The semis and finals will both be held at a neutral venue.
