The draw for the UEFA Youth League play-offs has just been made. We were the last ball out of the pot and we met the “Old Lady,” the Italian side Juventus on February 7 or 8!

Juventus are veterans of the UEFA Youth League. Last year they eliminated Liverpool and narrowly lost the semi-final on penalties to eventual winner Benfica. This year in the group stage they again faced Benfica! Together in a group with Maccabi Haifa and PSG, the Italians only lost once, on match day one in Paris. They finished in second place with 11 points.

The legendary Juventus, an Italian visitor to Genk, promises to be a great match! More information about the fixture will follow later.
