The usual rules apply – teams from the same country cannot be combined, and the lottery has been blatantly decided in favor of this group. I am pleased to report that despite these limitations, there is still plenty of room for a group of dead people or two.
1 . pot Chelsea, Villarreal, Bayern Munich, Manchester, Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Sporting Lisbon, Lille.
bowl 2 Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester UnitedParis Saint-Germain, Liverpool, Seville and Borussia Dortmund.
3 . pot Porto, Ajax, Shakhtar Donetsk, Leipzig, Salzburg, Benfica, Atalanta, Zenit.
4 . bowl Besiktas, Dynamo Kiev, Club Brugge, Young Boys, AC Milan, Malmo, Wolfsburg, Sherif Tiraspol.
In case you’re wondering why there are so many heavyweights in Pot B, it’s because they won it all last season. Pot A consists of two European winners, Chelsea And Villarreal, in addition to the champions of the six leagues with the highest coefficient.
