UEFA Champions League: Man Utd, Chelsea, Man City Know Rivals

The Premier League clubs that will compete in the UEFA Champions League next season have now learned 22 of the possible 28 opponents in the group stage.

Last season, Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea all finished in the top four.

Chelsea, the current Champions League holders, and City, the Premier League winners, have both been assigned to Pot 1.

Because of the UEFA’s same-nation rule, they cannot be put in the same group as Liverpool or Chelsea.

Atletico Madrid, Inter Milan, Villarreal, Bayern Munich, Sporting Lisbon, and Lille are all in Pot 1.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Sevilla are in Pot 2, while PSG, Liverpool, Borussia Dortmund, and Juventus are in Pot 3.

Porto, Ajax, RB Leipzig, Atalanta and Zenit Saint Petersburg are in Pot 3, while AC Milan and Wolfsburg are confirmed in Pot 4.

Besiktas, Dynamo Kiev, and Club Brugge have also qualified for the UEFA Champions League, but have yet to learn whether they will be placed in Pot 3 or Pot 4.

There are six spots left in the 32-team group stage.

The third round of Champions League qualifying is currently underway, and the winners of the two-legged matches will compete in a play-off to secure a place in the group stage.

The draw for the Champions League group stage will take place on August 26.
