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

No team can at this stage play a club from their own association - meaning no all-Premier League clashes just yet.

And no side can play a team from their previous group.

The ties will take place over two legs, with seeded group winners playing away in the first legs and at home in the return matches.

Who's in which pot?
