How does the draw work?

The round of 32 draw in December was a rather complicated affair involving seeded teams, Europa League group winners and those sides entering the competition having finished third in their respective Champions League groups.

Clubs from the same nation were unable to face each other – but those restrictions and seedings are stripped away at the last-16 stage.

In essence, any team can provisionally be drawn against one of their other 15 remaining sides (save for any restrictions announced ahead of the draw). That means there could be a Scottish Premiership-Premier League showdown.
