With the preliminaries over, it's now time for the main competition to begin. For that to happen, UEFA must first conduct the group stage draw at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco. 32 team have qualified for the group stage and they have been divided into four pots. The draw will begin at 6pm CET and will be live streamed on www.uefa.com.

The draw is restricted, as teams from the same association cannot be drawn into the same group. Pot 1 contains the title holder and the league champions of the top seven football associations. In pots 2, 3 and 4 are the remaining 24 teams, seeded based on their UEFA coefficient.
