The 12 group winners along with the four best Champions League dropouts were seeded for the draw and were paired with one of the 12 group runners-up or remaining four Champions League sides. Seeds also have the added advantage of playing the second leg of their tie at home.
Country protection was in place, while it was not possible for teams who qualified from the same Europa League group to be drawn against each other.
