Draw procedure
• All the clubs are seeded according to their coefficient and split into four groups.

• All the clubs within the groups are ordered randomly and identified by a number.

• The draw will be made in two batches: Groups 1 & 2 and Group 3 & 4.

• For each batch, two bowls will be prepared, one containing the balls with slips of paper numbered for the seeded teams and the other containing the balls with slips of paper numbered for the unseeded teams.

• A ball will be taken from each bowl and placed into an empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. One of the two balls is drawn at random, then opened to display the number it contains, denoting the side playing at home in the first leg. The second ball is drawn to complete the pairing. The result of this draw applies for both groups in the batch.

• The same procedure is carried out with the remaining balls to complete all the pairings.

Matches
• Ties are played on 20 and 27 August with the 22 winners going into the group stage draw in Monaco on 28 August along with 16 automatic entrants and the ten teams defeated in the UEFA Champions League play-off draw.
