the last play offs still to be played and will decide many of the pot 4 teams, depending on Uefa ranking but I’ll give it a go, last year went pretty well anyway just going with some stronger but doable teams now just for excitement.
if i’m right only Benfica would place over the others after the play offs and reach pot 2 (over Tottenham going to pot 3), meaning the other 5 if PSV make it, plus Marseille, Club Brugge and Celtic will join pot 4. Eventhough it looks like the last group is not in order. Since Leverkussen gathered more points than Sporting. It’s just a wild prediction anyway…Also keeping the club colors red for unity.
If we are hoping, better avoid Man. City, Bayern, PSG from pot 1 and Tottenham, Inter, Napoli from pot 3.
1: Real Madrid (ESP), Eintracht Frankfurt (ALE), Manchester City (ING), AC Milan (ITA), FC Bayern (ALE), Paris Saint-Germain (FRA), FC Porto (POR) and AFC Ajax ( HOL)
2: Liverpool FC (ING), Chelsea FC (ING), FC Barcelona (ESP), Juventus FC (ITA), Atlético de Madrid (ESP), Sevilla FC (ESP) , RB Leipzig (ALE) y Tottenham Hotspur (ING) )
3: Borussia Dortmund (ALE), FC Salzburg (AUT), Shakhtar Donetsk (UCR), FC Internazionale (ITA), SS Napoli (ITA), SL Benfica (POR), Sporting CP (POR) and Bayer Leverkusen (ALE)
4: FC Rangers (ESC), GNK Dinamo Zagreb (CRO), Olympique Marseille (FRA), FC Copenhague (DIN), Club Brujas (BEL), Celtic FC (ESC), FC Viktoria Plzen (CHE) and Maccabi Haifa FC (ISR)
Yup, fatal errors in defense shamefully PSV didn’t make it. Huge for Glasgow Rangers to be back, and the two Scottish teams to be represented in the CL.
Also Benfica got the pot 3 in the end, could be a fun one, i would like to match them as well.
From the 1st pot I’d want: Frankfurt, Milan or Ajax
From the 3rd: Salzburg, Shakhtar or Bayer
From the 4th: Dinamo, Maccabi or Viktoria
I’m afraid we won’t be able to pass the group stages with this form though.
We are gonna get M City. You read it here 1st
Well let’s hope for Maccabi Haifa I guess.
Watch us get Rangers or Marseille
This is what I would have said if I wasn’t a 100% onboard the Lope-train! We will go for first place, but I’m confident we will at least get second. Let’s go!
So it Man.C. Borussia D. and Copenhagen
Copenhagen isn’t a bad draw a all. The other two are a bit challenging but Dortmund did lose Haaland so who knows. Man City will be a challenge, but it’s not impossible to get a result
Tough draw…at the moment I would say we must get wins against Dortmond and Copenhagen to go forward. I think Man City is too much for us and drawing against them would be a “win”.
I was pleased beforehand that we couldn’t draw Spurs because i didn’t fancy going back there so soon. But @Brian jinxed us for Man City.
so what sort of punishment do we think we should give to @Brian for this draw? what would be appropriate penance?
I like that rematch vs Dortmund. Copenhagen are deceptive. And Man City is doomed. So yes, let’s see how we approach these games.
Tough group on paper. You feel City will win the group comfortably and between us and Dortmund for the second spot.
Man City will show us how a possession team is supposed to play. It sucks we have to go up against Haaland again, but at least Dortmund don’t have him. Get max points vs Copenhagen and we got a chance.
EDIT: I forgot about Adeyemi. Ok it’s up.
We have a chance for 2nd. It could be a close fight between us and Dortmund. We have to improve though if we want to advance. Playing Man City twice could get very ugly for us but it’s a great experience though for the players and the fans. The place will be rocking when we host City!
