Manchester United Message Board
Can anyone tells me when is the draw taking place?
Are Man U one of the seeded teams?
And any idea if City and Man U can be drawn in the same group?
Check the Eufa site and couldn't find any info on the site I looked at.
Many thanks in advantage.
From the last 32 until the semi-finals, clubs play two games against each other on a home-and-away basis with the same rules as the qualifying and play-off rounds applied. In the last 32, group winners and the four third-placed sides from the UEFA Champions League with the best records are seeded, guaranteeing they will play the second leg at home. Teams from the same group or the same association cannot be drawn together. From the round of 16 onwards the draw is free.
It isn't a group stage. Its the first knockout round we go into, the last 32.
Not sure when the draw is, but i'm sure i've read we are one of the seeded teams. I presume City are also.
And no, we can't draw City in this round, or any other British team I believe until the round of last 16.

Do you mean British or English? Why would they separate English and Scottish teams when we play in separate leagues?
Is the draw live? I ask because I want to know how they make a random draw while making sure some clubs don't meet other clubs. I know how I would do it but my method wouldn't make for much of a public spectacle.
