Pot 2 and we are assumed to go through
Pot 3 and 4/6 group games are tough

In pot 3 we are likely to get 2/3 teams from Germany, Spain, or Italy

True, but an easy draw might let us play some of the younger players in the last couple of group matches. Shouldn't affect our overall chances dramatically though.

Pot 2 clubs: Dortmund, Porto, Shaktar, Napoli, Roma (Benfica)
Pot 3 clubs: Shalke, Lyon, Monaco, CSKA, (Valencia, Viktoria Plzen, Bruges, Gala)

I'd expect us to beat all of these at Anfield, and most of them away regardless.

(But I do still want to know which pot we'll be in, just for the sake of it!)

Incidentally, Celtic may be going out as well. This will affect the amount of TV money split between the English clubs, as Scottish teams who qualify also get a share of the deal.
Celtic going out means that this year's TV money will be split between four, rather than five clubs (or six last season.)

All down to PAOK now to do Benfica, although I doubt it. But who cares who we get, we can absolutely beat anyone. When clubs from the top two pots are drawn in the groups, there won't be a single one that will then want us in their group.

Our current level is a pot 1 team, but too many years spent on the outside looking in will see us placed way lower. We are going to give some top teams some real problems as they don't want to face us at any time, never mind in the group stage. It will be like two pot one teams, a pot two team, and a pot four team in our group. Someone who wouldn't expect to lose out is going to lose out. 

Like all Liverpool fans I really want us to get Real Madrid. I've really grown a strong dislike towards them after the final, and Ramos keeping it going just makes my blood boil. What he said about Klopp was bang out of order.

Spurs beat them in the group last year, and if we face them at that stage so be it, but I'd much prefer to get them in the final. Ramos is laughing now, but we're going to get the last laugh. And while you don't want anyone going in on another player to break their leg or something like that, if he got roughed up by Van Dijk, I'll take it.

Its pot 3 for us Im afraid. But the only combination that would be a serious threat for us is Juventus/Atlético ; Bayern/Atlético and PSG/Atlético.

Dortmund, Napoli, Rome , Benfica and Porto are all opponents we should respect but we really should be beating them if we actually want to challenge for number 6.

It's not final, Benfica have one more round of qualifying to go through, if they lose, we are in pot 2.


We were in pot 3 last year and we had a good group so it's not unthinkable that we get one again.

I am not worried about any side we get.
