Great to be able to create this thread. This Thursday August 26th is the draw for the Group Stage of the Champions League. For the first time ever, Sporting CP is in Pot 1 after winning the league title. Of course, with last year providing a lot of surprises, Pot 2 is actually insanely strong and we'll likely get a big team anyways. Maybe a return for Bruno Fernandes with Man United? Or Messi/Mbappe/Neymar with PSG? Some remaining Play off matches will be resolved this Tuesday/Wednesday (including our rivals Benfica) but so far the Pots look like this: Pot 1 Chelsea Villareal Atletico Madrid Manchester City Bayern Munich Inter Milan Lille Sporting CP Pot 2 Real Madrid Barcelona Juventus Manchester United Paris Saint-Germain Liverpool Sevilla Borussia Dortmund Pot 3 FC Porto Ajax RB Leipzig Atalanta Zenit Pot 3 or 4 Besiktas Dynamo Kiev Pot 4 Club Brugge AC Milan Wolfsburg We'll get the full picture on Wednesday ahead of the draw.
