Hearts made it to the semi-finals of last year's competition, where they were beaten by eventual winners Celtic.

Hearts finished a place behind their rivals and will enter the group stages for the third successive season.

Last time around they were able to escape despite drawing with Raith Rovers and having two points deducted for fielding an ineligible player in the win against Cove Rangers.

The draw will take place at 1.30pm.
