The draw for the 2022/23 Champions League has already taken place and has drawn the eight groups that will make up the Champions League. Two Spanish teams have achieved a good group and the other two have entered the two groups of death. Here we leave you how the pairings have been:
Liverpool arrive as a clear favorite to be the first in the group. Despite the fact that Ajax arrives top of the series after having won the Eredivise, Jugen Klopp’s team comes into this edition of the Champions League as one of the top favourites. In addition, Naples is running as a team that could surprise and leave one of the two main candidates out, it is a team that has been reinforced very well.
Atlético is presented as the clear favorite to be first in the group. A priori, Cholo Simeone’s team is far superior to its rivals. Of the Spanish teams they have been the luckiest with the group. Porto and Leverkusen will have to fight for second place if nothing goes wrong.
It will be a very powerful group. Barcelona and Bayern Munich will meet again in the group stage. Let’s remember that last year Barcelona met the German team and they didn’t get past the group stage. In addition, Inter will seek to make things very difficult for them. Although they have entered from pot three, they are a very serious team in the Champions League. Without a doubt, Barcelona has touched the group of death.
Neither Eintratch nor Tottenham should have any problems reaching the knockout stage of the Champions League. They are running as the top two teams in the group. Sporting Lisbon and Olympique de Marseille are no match for the Europa League champions and one of the best teams in the Premier League.
It will be one of the most interesting groups in this Champions League. They don’t have any teams that look like serious contenders to make it to the final, but they do have teams that can cause an upset. Neither Milan nor Chelsea can be neglected in a group where Salzburg is. The two places that give entry to the final phase are going to be very expensive.
Real Madrid has got a good group. The current European Champion will face off against Leipzig, Shakhtar and Celtic. If nothing goes wrong, Carlo Ancelotti’s side should have no problem getting through the group stage first. They are not clubs that are at the same level as the team of Bnezema and Vini Jr.
It is not the group of death but it is not far away. Sevilla, like every year, will have a very expensive pass to the knockout phase of the Champions League. Manchester City cannot afford not to go through as first in the group and Borussia Dortmund is a team that knows the competition very well. It will be one of the most beautiful groups in the competition.
It is one of the most difficult groups in the Champions League. A team like PSG that opts for everything and a historic team like Juventus that is in full reconstruction will have to play for first place in the group. In addition, Benfica, which is the team that has arrived from pot 3, will arrive wanting to fight. Let us remember that last year he left Barcelona out and passed as second classified.
