Some quick rules for UCL draws tonight.
- One team will be picked from each pot to form a group. Total 8 groups will be formed with each group consisting 4 teams.
- Teams from same association cannot be drawn in the same group. For example, Barcelona and Real Madrid cannot be in the same group, Liverpool and Tottenham cannot be in the same group. All 4 teams in the group will be from 4 different leagues.
- Teams within one group will compete each other in home and away fixtures format. Top 2 teams from each group will qualify for UCL Round of 16 while teams finishing 3rd and 4th will play in Europa League 2019-20.
- The positions in the group will be decided solely on the points. If there is a tie between teams then goal difference will come into play. The away goal rule is applicable only in knockout stages.
