The draw for the first-round of the UEFA Youth League took place on Wednesday with Ajax and AZ Alkmaar involved.

The UEFA Youth League is different this year and will consist of knockout rounds instead of groups. The 64 teams were in the draw on Wednesday including Ajax and AZ Alkmaar’s U18 sides.

Ajax will take on Russian side Krasnodar in Amsterdam as they look to go far in the tournament once again. They reached the semi-finals of the tournament last season.

AZ Alkmaar face a trip to Turkey with Galatasaray the opponents.

The first round matches will be played on the 2nd or 3rd of March.
