How the draw worked

• The 60 teams have been divided into six groups of ten teams (groups 1 to 6) according to the classification by club coefficient established at the start of the season. Within each of the six groups, the teams were divided into an equal number of seeded and unseeded teams.

Two balls were prepared, one for the top seeds (five balls containing pegs numbered 1-5) and the other for the unseeded teams (five balls containing pegs numbered 6-10).

• A ball was taken from each bowl and placed in an empty bowl, where it was shuffled. One of the two balls has been drawn at random, then opened to reveal the number it contains. The second bullet was fired and opened to complete the pairing.

• The result applies to all six groups. For example, if the first ball drawn contained the number 2 and the second the number 8, the clubs assigned the numbers 2 and 8 in each of the six groups would face each other. The first ball drawn, in this example the number 2, designated the home team for the first leg of the six matches.

• The same procedure was performed with the remaining balls to complete the pairings.

What happens next?

Draws take place on July 7 and 14, with extra time and penalties if necessary after the second leg. The winners advance to the second qualifying round of the UEFA Europa Conference League.
