The seeded ones are in bold

How the Draw Worked

• The sixty teams have been divided into six groups of ten (Group 1 to 6) according to the ranks of the clubs in the UEFA coefficient at the start of the season. Within each group, the ten teams were divided into five seeds and five unseeded.

• Two bowls were prepared, one containing the seeds (five balls containing papers numbered from 1 to 5), the other the non-seeds (five balls containing papers numbered from 6 to 10).

• A ball was drawn from each bowl to be placed in an empty bowl, where the two balls were shuffled. One of the two balls was drawn at random and then opened to show the number contained. The second ball was then drawn to complete the poster.

• The result applied for all six groups. For example, if the first ball contains the number 2 and the second ball contains the number 8, the clubs assigned those two numbers in all six groups will compete against each other. The first ball drawn (the one containing the number 2 in this example) designates the home team in the first leg of these six matches.

• The same procedure applies for the other balls in order to define all the matches.

What’s next?

The matches take place on 7 and 14 July, with extra time and a penalty shoot-out if necessary after the second leg. The winners qualify for the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League.
