Draw procedure

  • The clubs will be ranked according to the coefficient of the seeded teams in the third qualifying round ties and further split into seeding groups.
  • Each side in each seeding group is allocated a number. Balls containing the seeded teams’ numbers are placed in one bowl, with balls for the unseeded teams’ numbers (within the same sub-group of clubs) in another.
  • A ball is taken from each bowl and put into a large empty bowl in the middle, where they are shuffled.
  • The clubs whose numbers correspond to the first ball drawn play their first game at home, against the sides whose numbers match the next ball drawn.

The winners will advance to the UEFA Europa League group stage.
