AC Milan could land a very tricky group to mark their return to the Champions League next season after seven years of absence.
As MilanLive writes, Villarreal are now seeded after winning the Europa League last night meaning the Spanish team joins Manchester City, Atletico Madrid, Inter, Bayern Munich, Lille and Sporting CP in Pot 1 for the Champions League draw. There is still an eighth spot which would be Chelsea if they win the Champions League final, otherwise the place would be occupied by Zenit, champion of Russia.
In Pot 2 there are also some daunting names such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Manchester United, PSG, Liverpool and Sevilla. The eighth team will be one between Chelsea and Borussia Dortmund.
If Chelsea were to lose the Champions League final it would bring Dortmund to Pot 3, together with Porto, Ajax, RB Leipzig and Atalanta. Finally, the Rossoneri currently sit with Wolfsburg as the only two teams in Pot 4.
AGGIORNAMENTO FASCE #UCL 21/22
La finale UEL ha parlato: Villarreal qualificata e testa di serie, Man United in fascia 2, Porto in terza.
È già incredibile non entrare in 2 con punteggio 87.500, ma perfino il BVB con 90.000 rischia di starne fuori: dipende dal Chelsea.
