Europa League knockout round play-off draw procedure

The eight runners-up from the UEFA Europa League group stage will be seeded, while the eight third-placed teams from the UEFA Champions League group stage are unseeded.

Clubs from the same association cannot be drawn against each other, so Barcelona could not face another team from La Liga or Bayer Leverkusen could not be paired with another Bundesliga side.
