As we know, the 1-0 win over Besiktas last night put us into the group stages of the Champions League for the 17th successive season.
The draw takes place later this afternoon at UEFA HQ when the bald man will say a lot of stuff and there’ll be some video montages and a great European player like Jan Koller will come out and meddle with his balls.
Anyway, Arsenal are seeded in Pot 1, and the rest of the pots are as follows. Obviously we can’t draw any teams from England, who are marked in red.
The groups consist of a team from each one of the pots.
Pot 1 Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Benfica, Atletico Madrid, Arsenal, Porto
Pot 2 Schalke, Borussia Dortmund, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Shakhtar Donetsk, Basel, Zenit St Petersburg, Manchester City
Pot 3 Olympiakos, CSKA Moscow, Ajax, Liverpool, Sporting Lisbon, Galatasaray, Athletic Bilbao, Bayer Leverkeusen
Pot 4 Anderlecht, Roma, APOEL, BATE Borisov, Maribor, Monaco, PFC Ludogorets Razgrad, Malmö FF
We’re going with Juventus, Galatasaray and Monaco – yes, we’re making the ridiculous assumption that we won’t face Olympiakos again.
