expiry of the draw
• The 32 clubs have been divided into four groups of eight teams according to the club coefficient ranking set at the start of the season and the principles of the Club Competitions Committee.
• The teams will be drawn into eight groups of four. Each group contains one team from each pot.
• Clubs from the same association could not be drawn into the same group. Further restrictions will be announced before the draw.
• To ensure that clubs from the same country (including those playing in the UEFA Europa Conference League) have different kick-off times where possible, the eight groups are divided into different colours: groups A to D are red, groups E to H blue. For example, if a club is drawn into one of the red groups, the other club, if drawn, will automatically be placed into one of the blue groups.
