There will be two seeding pots – one consisting of the eight group winners and the other of the eight runners-up.

No team can play a club from their group – or any side from their own country, meaning there will be no all-Premier League showdown at this stage.

Seeded group winners will play the first leg of the two-legged ties away from home.
