The eight group winners and the four best-placed runners-up will progress to the last 16 knockout stage where they will be joined by Scotland’s four European club competition representatives - St Johnstone, Rangers, Aberdeen and current Betfred Cup holders Celtic.

This year’s final will take place at Hampden on November 26.
