For the draw, the 32 teams that qualified have been grouped into four pots, each having eight teams. The rule is that teams from the same country can't be drawn against each other, as well as teams that find themselves in the same pot.

Pot 1 will have the Champions League holders, Real Madrid, and Europa League winners Eintracht Frankfurt. It will also contain the teams that won the league title in the Premier League, Serie A, Bundesliga, Ligue 1, and the Portuguese Primeira Liga.

Eredivisie champions, Ajax, took the spot of La Liga title holders since the Los Blancos are already in the pot, having claimed the spot left for last season's UEFA Champions League winners.

The remaining 24 teams were arranged in pots 2 to 4 according to their UEFA coefficient, which measures results and performance in Europe over the last five years.

Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham find themselves in pot 2. Based on the rules, we know they can't be drawn against each other as well as Manchester City in pot 1. They can't also be drawn against the other 5 teams in pot 2, which includes Barcelona, Juventus, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and RB Leipzig.

Therefore, we believe the toughest possible group for either of those three teams, will be a group that also includes, Real Madrid from pot 1, Inter Milan from pot 3, and Marseille from pot 4.
