What time is the Europa League draw? (Play-off round) - TV channel, pots and how to watch
| Last updated
The Europa League play-off round draw takes place on Monday, and we have all the information you need about how to watch the draw take place.
The play-off round is a new initiative for this season. It sees the eight teams who finished third in their Champions League group, take on the eight runners-up from this campaign's Europa League groups.
The winners of each match then go into the draw for the last 16 stage of the competition, which takes place in February.
It is one of the more highly-anticipated Europa League draws of recent years, with Man United, Barcelona, Juventus and Ajax among the big-hitters involved.
Teams from the same association cannot draw each other at this stage, as per UEFA rules - meaning no Juventus vs Roma or PSV vs Ajax - but there is still the prospect of some incredible ties.
United, for instance, could face Barca or Juve, or alternatively face a tie against Erik ten Hag's former club, Ajax.
They can't, however, face former boss Jose Mourinho's Roma, as both sides are in the same pot for this phase of the 2022/23 Europa League draw.
Here is how you can watch all the action:
