How does the group stage work?
Teams in every group face each other home and away, with the same pairs of sides meeting on Matchdays 1 and 5, or Matchdays 2 and 6, or Matchdays 3 and 4.
The top two will continue their European campaigns in the new year:
- Group winners progress to the round of 16.
- Group runners-up go into the knockout round play-offs, where they will be joined by the teams finishing third in the UEFA Europa League groups.
How did the draw work?
Teams were divided into four pots based on their UEFA club coefficients. One team from each of the pots was then drawn into the eight groups, A–H. There were a few caveats: No team could play a club from their own association, and some sides from the same association were paired to ensure they play at different kick-off times (18:45 CET and 21:00 CET) for the benefit of TV audiences.
Draws are provisional and subject to the outcome of ongoing investigations and/or legal proceedings and final confirmation by UEFA.
