Pot 1 and Pot 4 are relatively easy comparing to last years and Pot 2 probably the hardest one ever.

Who would you want in your group?

I personally want Qarabağ from pot 4. Short travel and another Turkish team. To qualify I'd like the most logical ones from 1 and 2: Moskow and Porto-Sevilla. Everyone except Real Madrid and PSG.

I don't know why they have to pull a draw so many times. One time in group stages is enough. Obviously, competition is rigged but not sure why other clubs agree with the system and voice protest over it. Off top my head I can name one club who was victim of unfair draws more often than fair : Arsenal

Ill gladly take Real first group. Means you can shift focus on two teams and not three if you choose to do so, and that can help with resting players, others getting more experience, ect.... The competitor in me whats to play the best to be the best, but playing smart goes a long way.

@Marcus I agree %100.

@DarthFooty So, do you mean you will rest your players against Real Madrid and focus on the other two? You do realize it will probably affect the GD by -4,-5 or something lol.

I'm not gonna lie, but I actually don't want either tottenham or PSG. Our defence is shaky and against an organized attack lead by Kane and dictated by Eriksen, that's a really tough team to beat. With Neymar linking up so well with his fellow teammates, PSG are honestly UCL contenders. Both teams have their flaws, tottenham have no depth whatsoever and PSG barely face a tough opponent, so facing Real off the bat would surely cause tactic havoc.

I'd love to get Porto, Tottenham, and Leipzig since we haven't played with these teams in recent years :p No more Borussia Dortmund in group stage lol

Also, I did my own CL draw simulation online and got this result enter image description here

Madrid-Dortmund yay -__- Doesn't look too bad for Man U, Tottenham, City, or Chelsea though. Here's the link if you guys want to try it out and see if we get some of these right https://draw.inker.fun/#/cl/gs :)

@nigelpayne lol hope we're wrong with Madrid-Dortmund. That'd be a nice group for Man U for sure, and probably the toughest is C again, poor Liverpool D:

Very nice share Yvan, anyway, as you can see, my group D G and H are pretty tough (all team are pretty even in them or at least, can cause some problem for each other). Atletico and Bayern again but other than that, most of those match-up are fresh. :) Also, I feel like I screwed a lot of English team. XD

@Emo haha except City and Chelsea it seems. So far Liverpool has been getting pretty bad groups, kind of expected since they'll be on pot 3 :< Although, Porto is Liverpool's best pot 2 draw, along with Sevilla. But Leipzig just makes that Group H so much more competitive for them.

@Yvan Sporting, Leipzig and Celtic really feel like the toughest team in Pot 4 and yes, Porto and Sevilla are propably the weakest Pot 2 team and the easiest (still no pushover) for team like Liverpool and Tottenham who are in Pot 3. Should be quite the interesting CL group stage this season. :)

Only groups where I don't see two clear favorites to make it to the last 16 are groups G and H.
