The final phase of the 2007–08 UEFA Cup began on 13 February 2008. It was completed on 14 May 2008 with the final at the City of Manchester Stadium, Manchester. The knockout stage involves the 24 teams who finished in the top three in each of their groups in the group stage, along with the eight third-placed clubs from the Champions League group stage.

Each tie in the knockout stage, apart from the final, were played over two legs, with each team playing one leg at home. The team that has the higher aggregate score over the two legs will progress to the next round. In the event that aggregate scores finish level, the team that scored more goals away from home over the two legs will progress. If away goals are equal too, 30 minutes of extra time are played, followed by a penalty shootout if scores are still level.

In the final, the tie is played over just one leg at a neutral venue. If scores are level at the end of normal time in the final, extra time is played, followed by penalties if scores remain tied.
