How Does the Champions League Draw Work?


For anyone who’s new to UEFA’s elite competition, the remaining 16 teams will be split into two different categories – seeded and unseeded.

This is done by splitting the winning of each group (seeded) into one pot. The runners up (unseeded) will be in the other.

Seeded teams cannot be drawn against each other, while teams from the same country also can not face each other at this stage of the competition. Any further restrictions will be confirmed before the draw.

All seeded teams will play the second leg at home.
