Planning a Football Trip in July 2019. This post has details of the UEFA Champions League Second round draw to help you plan your Football Trip.
Whilst some of the venues and fixtures will not be known until the first round is completed on the 17th July it is still possible to plan a football trip to the second round due to the seeding system.
The 20 teams (four directly qualified and 16 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round that were indicated as winners of matches 1–16) were divided into two groups of ten teams.
Within the two groups, the 20 teams (four directly qualified and 16 pairs of teams from the first qualifying round indicated as winners of matches 1–16) were split equally into ten seeded teams and ten unseeded teams.
The balls containing the seeded teams were placed in one bowl and the balls containing the unseeded were put into another bowl. One ball was taken from each bowl and placed in a large empty bowl in the middle, where they were shuffled. The first team drawn will play its first match at home against the second team drawn.
