How the draw works

• No teams are seeded for the third qualifying round of the champions path. An open draw is held to determine pairings, with the first team drawn playing the first leg at home.

• The clubs that qualify directly for the third qualifying round of the main path are seeded above the clubs eliminated from the second qualifying round of the Champions League league path.

• For the main path draw, the balls containing the names of the seeded teams will be placed in one bowl and the balls containing the unseeded sides put into another bowl. One ball will be taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they will be shuffled. The first team drawn will play the first leg at home.

• Clubs from the same association cannot be drawn against each other. Further restrictions will be announced before the draw.
