Anyone care to post the pots?
Edit: Here’s what’s confirmed so far.
Pot 1: Real Madrid (ESP, holders), Barcelona (ESP), Leicester City (ENG), Bayern München (GER), Juventus (ITA), Benfica (POR), Paris Saint-Germain (FRA), CSKA Moskva (RUS)
Pot 2: Atlético Madrid (ESP), Borussia Dortmund (GER), Arsenal (ENG), Sevilla (ESP), Porto (POR), Napoli (ITA), Bayer Leverkusen (GER)
Pot 3: Tottenham Hotspur (ENG), Dynamo Kyiv (UKR), Lyon (FRA), PSV Eindhoven (NED), Sporting CP (POR), Club Brugge (BEL)
Pot 4: Monaco (FRA), Beşiktaş (TUR), Legia Warszawa (POL), Ludogorets Razgrad (BUL)
It could well be the year we don’t qualify from the group. Last year showed us we can’t count on picking up points about the pot 4 teams. We struggled against Besiktas in a qualifier with a much more settled, coherent team than we currently have.
When you look at pot 1, there’s only CSKA Moscow and Benfica that I wouldn’t be very confident of us dropping 6 points to, though I think we’d lose heavily away to both those sides, and realistically we’d be looking at a point from the home game.
I’d also have doubts about our ability to compete away from home against any of the sides currently confirmed for pot 3 except Club Brugge. Basel could yet end up in pot 3 and I seriously doubt we could beat them.
