The event will take place this Thursday, at 18.00 CET (17.00 BST), in the city of Istanbul (Turkey).

How does the draw work?

For the group stage draw, the teams will be split into four seeding pots.

Pot 1 contains the UEFA Champions League winners

the UEFA Europa League winners and the champions of the six highest-ranked nations (Spain, England, Germany, Italy, France and Portugal).

As 2021 Champions League winners Chelsea had already qualified via the Premier League, Besiktas enter the group stage as champions of the 11th national federation (Turkey).

If Premier League runners-up Manchester United won the Europa League final

Monaco would have entered the group stage as third-placed team from the fifth federation (France)

instead, Villarreal’s victory meant Spain had five representatives, the maximum number a federation can have.

Pot 1: Chelsea, Villarreal, Manchester City, Atlético, Bayern, Inter, Lille, Sporting Portugal.

2: Real Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Juventus, PSG, Liverpool, Manchester United and Borussia Dortmund.

3: Ajax, RB Leipzig, Atalanta, Porto and Zenit.

Possible Pot 3: Besiktas, Dynamo Kiev, Brugge…

Pot 4: Milan and Wolfsburg.
