Explanation
The UEFA Champions League play-off draw consists of ten clubs in each of the champions and league routes. Five in each section are seeded according to the club coefficient rankings established at the start of the season, and are drawn against the other five. Balls containing the seeded teams are placed in one bowl, with balls for the unseeded clubs positioned in another. A ball is taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they are shuffled. The first team drawn will play their first match at home, against the second side drawn.
