How does the Champions League draw work?

Similar to the World Cup draw, the 32 teams were split into four pots based on ranking, and then teams were chosen from those pots into eight groups.

Each of the groups is led by one of the teams in Pot 1, which consists of last year’s Champions League winner (Real Madrid), last year’s Europa League winner (Eintracht Frankfurt) and England’s top league winner. , Italy, Germany, France, Portugal and Holland. (Netherlands Eredivisie champions Ajax were elevated to Pot 1 because Real Madrid won the Champions League and Spain’s top league La Liga last season.)

No team from the same country can be placed in the same group.
