What could be ‘the group of death’ in this season’s Champions League?

first_img There’s also the chance that one of the groups could contain no LaLiga sides at all. If we consider Inter as the most difficult team to be drawn against in Pot 4, it could create a group which includes PSG, Dortmund, Liverpool and Inter. 30/08/2018 Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atlético are all in Pot 1. This pot is made up of the champions from the top five leagues in Europe, the current Champions League holders and the team which won last season’s Europa League. The other names in this pot are PSG, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Manchester City and Lokomotiv Moscow.
