How does the draw work?

The group winners of the Champions League are placed and the number two are not placed.

The eight seeded and eight unseeded teams will be placed in two separate bowls, with one chosen from each to determine each of the eight two-legged last-16 draws. Unseeded teams play the home game first.

Teams cannot face a side from their own country (ie Premier League clubs cannot be drawn against another Premier League outfit) nor can they compete against a team they competed against in the group stage.
