How the Champions League draw works (from UEFA)

  • There will be two draws: one for the eight teams in the Champions path (including two entering at this stage), the other for the four clubs in the League path.

  • The teams in each draw will be divided equally between seeded and unseeded sides in accordance with the club coefficient rankings. The higher coefficient of the two clubs involved in an undecided pairing will be used for the purposes of the draw.

  • The teams in each draw will be divided equally between seeded and unseeded sides in accordance with the club coefficient rankings.

  • The balls containing the names of the seeded teams will be placed in one bowl and the balls containing the unseeded sides will be put into another bowl. One ball will be taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. The first team drawn will play at home in the first leg.

  • Sides from the same association cannot be drawn against each other. Any other restrictions will be announced ahead of the draw.
