• The teams with the five highest coefficients in each route – this applies to both League and Champions – are seeded and drawn against the other five teams in that route.

• To determine each tie, one side apiece from the seeded and non-seeded pots will be drawn and placed in another pot, with the first of the two to then be picked out at home in the first leg.

• Due to the restriction in Russian and Ukrainian clubs meeting, Shakhtar cannot be drawn against CSKA Moskva.

Ties will be played on 18/19 & 25/26 August, the ten winners joining the 22 clubs automatically qualified for the group stage.
