Main path draw details

  • The draw took place at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland on Wednesday 19 June.
  • As laid down in paragraphs 13.03 and 13.04 of the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League Regulations, the UEFA administration formed groups and seeded clubs for the second qualifying round in accordance with the club rankings established at the beginning of the season and with the principles set out by the Club Competitions Committee.
  • The 74 teams (27 directly qualified and 47 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round) were divided into five groups (groups 1–5) of ten teams and into two groups (groups 6–7) of 12 teams.
  • Within the seven groups, the 74 teams (27 directly qualified and 47 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round) were split equally as 37 seeded teams and 37 unseeded teams.
  • Sides from the same association could not be drawn against each other.
  • If any club in the first qualifying round had an individual coefficient that entitled it to be seeded in the second qualifying round, the winner of the first qualifying round match involving that club was automatically seeded for the second qualifying round draw.

Groups 1–5

  • All clubs in the five groups were ordered randomly and identified by a number: 1 to 5 for the seeded teams and 6 to 10 for the unseeded.
  • Two bowls were prepared, one containing balls with slips of paper numbered 1–5 for the seeded teams and the other containing balls with slips of paper numbered 6–10 for the unseeded.
  • A ball was taken from each bowl and placed in an empty bowl in the middle, where they were shuffled. One of the two balls was drawn at random, then opened to display the number it contained. The second ball was drawn to complete the pairing. The result of this draw applied to all five groups.
  • For example, if the first ball drawn contained the number 2 and the second the number 8, the clubs assigned numbers 2 and 8 in each of the five groups would play each other. In addition, the first ball drawn, here containing the number 2, designated the home team for the first leg and likewise for all five groups.
  • The same procedure was carried out with the remaining balls to complete all the pairings.

Groups 6 to 7

  • All clubs in the two groups were ordered randomly and identified by a number: 1 to 6 for the seeded teams and 7 to 12 for the unseeded.
  • Two bowls were prepared, one containing balls with slips of paper numbered 1–6 for the seeded teams and the other containing balls with slips of paper numbered 7–12 for the unseeded.
  • A ball was taken from each bowl and placed in an empty bowl in the middle, where they were shuffled. One of the two balls was drawn at random, then opened to display the number it contained. The second ball was drawn to complete the pairing. The result of this draw applied to both groups.
  • For example, if the first ball drawn contained the number 2 and the second the number 8, the clubs assigned numbers 2 and 8 in each of the two groups would play each other. In addition, the first ball drawn, here containing the number 2, designated the home team for the first leg and likewise for both groups.
  • The same procedure was carried out with the remaining balls to complete all the pairings.

Champions path draw details

  • The draw took place at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland on Wednesday 19 June.
  • As laid down in paragraphs 13.05 and 13.06 of the 2019/20 UEFA Europa League Regulations, the UEFA administration formed groups and seeded clubs for the second qualifying round based on the stage at which clubs are eliminated from the UEFA Champions League (champions path), and in accordance with the principles set out by the Club Competitions Committee.
  • For the second qualifying round, the clubs eliminated in the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League (champions path) were seeded*.
  • The 18 teams (three pairs of teams from the preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League indicated as semi-finalist 1, semi-finalist 2 and finalist, and 15 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League indicated as matches 1–15) were divided into three groups of six teams.
  • Within the three groups, the 18 teams (three pairs of teams from the preliminary round of the UEFA Champions League indicated as semi-finalist 1, semi-finalist 2 and finalist, and 15 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League indicated as matches 1–15) were split as 15 seeded teams and three unseeded teams.
  • For each group of six teams, two pots were prepared, one for the five seeded teams and the other for the unseeded team.
  • For the first group, the balls containing the seeded teams were placed in one bowl and the ball containing 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 its first match at home against the second team drawn.
  • Once the unseeded team had been paired, the draw became open and seeding no longer applied.
  • The remaining four balls of the first group containing the seeded teams were drawn one after another to pair them. The first team drawn will play the first match at home.
  • The same procedure was then repeated to determine the pairings for the second and third groups.

* Except for the losing side in the tie between Celtic and Sarajevo. They will progress to the third qualifying round due to the rebalancing of the access list following Liverpool winning the UEFA Champions League and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League group stage via the domestic league.
