How the draw worked

he draw took place on Monday 31 August at the House of European Football in Nyon. It was streamed live on UEFA.com. The UEFA administration formed groups for the draws to avoid clubs without an approved stadium being drawn against each other, in accordance with the principles set by the Club Competitions Committee. Sides from the same association could not be drawn against each other.

Champions Path draw
For each group the balls containing the names of the seeded teams were placed in one bowl and the ball containing the name of the unseeded team was put into another bowl. One ball was taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they were shuffled. The first team drawn will play the tie at home. As the unseeded team had already been paired, the draw then became open and seeding no longer applied.
