Europa League and Conference League: This is how the draw works today

As of: February 23, 2024 7:14 a.m

Bayer Leverkusen and SC Freiburg are looking intently at Nyon this Friday (February 23, 2024). The round of 16 in the Europa League and the Europa Conference League will be drawn there from 12 p.m. How does the draw work?

While Leverkusen had already qualified for the round of 16 in the Europa League as group winners, SC Freiburg had to go through the playoffs as second in the group and prevailed against RC Lens (0:0/3:2 nV).

There are two pots in the draw. One contains the tickets for the group winners, the other contains the tickets for the playoff winners. The group winners have home advantage in the second leg. Teams from a national association may not be drawn against each other.

Frankfurt makes a mistake against Union Saint-Gilloise

It’s similar in the Europa Conference League. There, too, the group winners meet the playoff winners in the round of 16. However, Eintracht Frankfurt will only watch. The Hessians lost their playoff second leg against Union Saint-Gilloise from Belgium 1:2 (first leg 2:2) and were therefore eliminated.
