Champions League draw - August 29th

Recommended Posts

These are the pots as they stand at the moment with the last 3 qualifying games to play tonight - the 3 clubs not in bold are probably going to go through but it could be Apoel, Lask or Cluj instead. If any of them won, they'd be in Pot 4 so Lyon, Lokomotiv and Genk have a small possibility of bumping up a pot.

Spurs in the same pot as Real seems a bit mad, as does Chelsea's Europa League win getting them in Pot 1.

 

Benfica, Salzburg, Genk or something like that would be nice.

Brugge and Atlanta, so we get to see Liverpool legends Mingolet and Skrtel once again at Anfield

They'd both have the best games of their career tho

Chelsea getting in Pot 1 for winning the Europa League is ridiculous.

 

yeah agree.

 

They should get entry and then go where their coefficient dictates

Chelsea being in Pot 1 doesn't change much.

 

If the EL winner didn't get into Pot 1 as of right, it would probably go to Benfica (Portuguese champions - Portugal is the next highest country ranking after Russia).

 

Chelsea's ranking would put them in Pot 2 - so all that would do is take out an easier team we can draw from Pot 2 and replace it with one we can't.

Pot 1 is the League winners of the 6 top ranked countries (Spain, England, Germany, France, Italy & Russia) plus CL winners and EL winners. Pots 2-4 are the other qualified teams ordered by ranking coefficient

 

I hadn't realised that until someone (I think Hightown Phil)  pointed it out back end of last year

How is the russian league ranked higher than the Portuguese league?

Its marginal and might turn around by next season, but its not like the Portuguese teams have done anything of note in the past 5 years.

Russian clubs have collected more UEFA points in Europe in the previous five seasons.

I get that, just find it surprising

Basically Benfica and CSKA were in the same CL group two years ago. CSKA beat them home and away and then got the Europa League quarter finals.

I mean look at the recent seasons - 

 

EC winners have been from England (4), Spain (8), Germany (1) or Italy (2) since Porto won it in 2004 - runners up have all been from those 4 countries too in that same time.
