How the draw worked

Champions path

• The ties featured eight second qualifying round winners (Champions path) and two teams eliminated from UEFA Champions League first qualifying round.

• Starting with Group 1, the teams were drawn into ties without seeding. The first ball drawn designated the home team for the first leg.

Main path

• The ties featured nine new entrants and 45 second qualifying round (Main path) winners.

• Ahead of the draw, the teams were split into three groups of eight teams (groups 1 to 3) and three groups of ten teams (groups 4 to 6).

• Within each of the six groups, the teams were divided into an equal number of seeded and unseeded teams. Teams from the same association could not be drawn against each other.

• If any club in a second qualifying round match has a coefficient that would entitle it to be seeded for the third qualifying round draw, the winner of that match was automatically seeded for the draw.

• For groups 1 to 3, all clubs were randomly assigned a number: 1 to 4 for the seeded teams and 5 to 8 for the unseeded teams. Two bowls were prepared (one for seeded teams and one for unseeded teams).

• A ball was taken from each bowl and placed in an empty bowl, where they were shuffled. One of the two balls was drawn at random, then opened to display the number it contains. The second ball was drawn and opened to complete the pairing. The first ball drawn designated the home team. The result was applied to all three groups.

• The same procedure applied to groups 4 to 6, where seeded teams were numbered from 1 to 5 and unseeded teams from 6 to 10.

What happened next?

The ties took place on 3/4 and 9/10/11 August, with extra time and a penalty shoot-out if required after the second leg. The winners advanced to the UEFA Europa Conference League play-offs.
