Group Stage Draw

Like the FIFA World Cup the top eight games were seeded and placed in Pot A so that they could not be placed in the same groups. The other pots were determined by geographical area to limit the number of games from similar areas being placed in the same groups. Games from geographical areas being in the same pot as a seeded game from that area was minimised.
Unlike the FIFA World Cup a second level of seeding was applied to attempt to make the groups as balanced as possible. Why they don't do this I have no idea.
