Juventus will play Borussia Dortmund in a repeat of the 1997 final while FC Basel’s Portuguese coach Paulo Sousa will seek to eliminate Portuguese side Porto.

The first legs will be played on Feb.17/18 and Feb. 24/25 with the second legs being played on March 10/11 and March 17/18 next year. The final is in Berlin on June 6.
