As it was the case in the round of 16, the away goals rule no longer applies. If the tie is level after 180 minutes, it goes to extra time. If the teams still can’t be separated after an additional 30 minutes, the tie goes to a penalty shoot-out.

This season’s final takes place at the Stade de France in Paris, which also staged the showpiece in 2000 and 2006 as well as the UEFA EURO 2016 decider. The game will be played on Saturday 28 May.
