The 24 top club rugby teams in Europe will all know the road they need to take to the 11th Heineken Cup final at the Millennium Stadium, when the tournament draw takes place at the Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff Bay.
Under the draw the six top seeds from the six nations - the French No 1 club will be settled when Biarritz Olympique and Stade Français Paris clash in the French Championship final at Stade de France on Saturday, 11 June - will be kept apart at the head of the six Pools.
London Wasps (England), Munster (Ireland), Rugby Calvisano (Italy), Glasgow Rugby (Scotland) and the Ospreys (Wales) are the five confirmed top seeds.
No two teams from the same country will be drawn in the same Pool except for the seventh French club, Clermont Auvergne, who could face any of their six domestic rivals.
