Champions League 2017/18

With the mighty Reds taking care of Hoffenheim to book their spot in the main draw, the 32 teams competing this season are:

POT 1
Real Madrid
Bayern Munich
CHELSEA
Juventus
Benfica
Monaco
Spartak Moscow
Shakhtar Donetsk

POT 2
Barcelona
Atletico Madrid
PSG
Borussia Dortmund
Sevilla
MANCHESTER CITY
Porto
MANCHESTER UNITED

POT 3
Napoli
TOTTENHAM
Basle
Olympiacos
Anderlecht
LIVERPOOL
Roma
Besiktas

POT 4
CELTIC
CSKA Moscow
Sporting Lisbon
APOEL Nicosia
Feyenoord
Maribor
Qarabag
RB Leipzig

Draw starts tomorrow morning. Qarabag beat FC Copenhagen to become the first team from Azerbaijan to qualify for the main draw!

Not a fix up at all having both Manchester teams in the same group.

Don’t think so. It’s not as if they can be drawn together anyway, not in the Group stages at least. Maybe Spurs are unlucky to be in Pot 3 behind Utd, but there is some formula to how they work it out in terms of history in the competition (past winners generally get favourable treatment, that’s why we as a 5-time winner haven’t been put in P4, where based on our last decade we should be…)

Oh is this the pot? Thought it was groups already.

Groups are drawn tomorrow. These are the pot allocations, so each Group will have one team from each of the pots. Teams from the same country can’t be drawn together, so Chelsea and Man City can’t meet in the group stages.

There could be a few group of deaths.

Yep, some big teams in Pot 2 this year.

POT 2
Barcelona
Atletico Madrid
PSG
Borussia Dortmund
Sevilla
MANCHESTER CITY
Porto
MANCHESTER UNITED

Barca and PSG will be rigged to be in the same group.

Knowing our luck we’ll get one of Real Madrid or Bayern Munich from Pot 1, then follow that up with either PSG or Barca (If we don’t get RM from P1) from Pot 2.

They can’t be. Each group has one team from each pot. They’re both in pot 2

I know, I know. That’s why I said rigged! :stuck_out_tongue:

Great draw
Lol Spurs

I think that eliminates any chance of Costa going back to Atletico Madrid now!

Chelsea are off to Azerbaijan.

Liverpool been kissed on the ■■■■ with that draw.

Congratulations on Qualifying Spurs.

Interesting fact. If United goes to Azerbaijan Mkhitaryan can’t go because he’s considered a war criminal there because he’s Armenian.

Also if United can’t get through group stages fold the club.

Wow, thats brutal for spurs

Happy with our draw, we should make it through pretty easy

Happy with Real’s draw. I am still in a dreamlike state after the last 2 seasons. Zizou has more trophies (8) than losses (7) in his time as Real coach. And this man Asensio is a champion in the making!
