Confirmed UEFA Champions League group stage draw pots [Graphic]

The lineup and seedings are confirmed for the UEFA Champions League group stage draw.

Chelsea – the fourth and final English club – are the only ones in pot 1, after UEFA changed the format to include eight champions from eight different countries in pot 1.

Featuring Real Madrid, Pot 2 looks very strong whilst Roma, Sevilla and Shakhtar Donestk would all be difficult opponents from pot 3.

German side Wolfsburg are in pot 4 and everyone will be desperate not to draw them after their superb Bundesliga campaign last year.

Excitement will be felt in the air all over Europe tomorrow with the draw set to take place at 4:45pm on Thursday afternoon.

Holders Barcelona are considered favourites for the competition, having completed a historic treble in Luis Enrique’s first season in charge.
