It will be held in Istanbul, Turkey from 5.00pm, where special guests Branislav Ivanovic and Michael Essien will assist with the draw.

No team can play a side from their own association. Any other restrictions will be announced ahead of the draw ceremony.
The top two teams in each group advance to the round of 16.
The third-placed sides in each group transfer to the UEFA Europa League knockout stage, where they will face the UEFA Europa League group runners-up for places in the last 16.
The draw will be shown live on BT Sport 1 from 4.45pm will live streaming on BTSport.com and via the BT Sport App.
