Champions League draw

Recommended Posts

Hadn't realised this had crept up on us , being done from Istanbul tomorrow at 5pm BST

 

There could be actually be more quality in pot 2 than pot 1 this year with Lille , Sporting Lisbon and Villareal in the first one.

If the draw is starts at 5pm, then I expect the teams will only be pulled out of the bags at about 6pm with the usual UEFA bollocks making up most of the time.

 

Don't care who we get as long as there is no huge amount of travelling time.

We'll certainly be in pot 2 though- https://kassiesa.net/uefa/data/method5/trank2021.html

 

 

Those coefficients are complete bollocks.  Bayern get 36 points for winner it in 19/20, Chelsea get 33 for last season, but City get 35!  I know it has something to do with your national league but what a load of fucking bullshit.

Yeah, it's based on your results in the previous rounds so if you win all your group games, you might end up with more points than the eventual overall winner. There's also the country coefficient which reflects how well teams from your own league have done in previous years. Without that, dross like Everton and Burnley wouldn't be in the top 150.

 

Edit: actually once their massive 3 points drops off in a couple of seasons, they won't get on the chart at all, assuming they don't qualify again, which seems pretty likely...

Turkey appears to be the only red list country in Europe at present , so avoiding any of their clubs would be good.

 

A Scandy team , a Benelux team and Lille or Sporting would be nice

Hope it does for your sake  , DP.

Still don't want a draw against a Turkish team though.

I wonder what the deal will be on away supporters? 
 

I’d desperate to get out the house for a few days. I see UEFA have said no away supporters for the next international break.

Pot 1 - Lille as @3 Stacks says, but any of them other than Bayern and Atletico would be fine.

Pot 3 - Bit boring this one as we seem to have played a few of them recently, maybe Benfica 

Pot 4 - Surely have to go with the Sheriff?  Failing that I'd go Malmo, don't remember playing them and they have European Cup pedigree.

I'd like to avoid

 

Pot one

Atletico 

Bayern 

 

And the teams in Eastern Europe for travel times. 

 

 

 

We have beat Atalanta,Leipzig recently. 

Not arsed about Milan so long as the rest of the draw isn't tougher games

Worst possible draw: Bayern, Porto, Kiev

Best possible draw: Lille, Benfica, Bruges (looks like a Europa League group, that!)

Prediction: Atletico, Shakhtar, Malmo, bit of a scare as we lose the opener to Atletico but we still go through with one game to spare.

Bruges are half decent aren't they?  Obviously nothing to worry about, but better than at least half the teams in that pot.

 

Edit - Just checked the coefficients.  According to that Kiev are best of Pot 4, followed by Bruges (knew it) but they are all closely grouped, apart from Wolfsburg and then Sheriff who are the worst ranked team by a mile.

Presumably Sheriff's badge was designed in a schoolkids competition.

A stupid schoolkids' competition, they can't even spell 'football' correctly.

I would swap out Benfica for Ajax just to reduce the travel time even more. Wouldn't be miles off 3 south coast aways that.

We don’t want Benfica. Fuck that
