Which pot AC Milan will be in for the Champions League draw and potential opponents

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have booked their spot in the 2023-24 edition of the Champions League but they face the prospect of a tougher draw than this season.

As MilanNews reports, only the winner of the Europa League – which will be determined tonight – remains to be discovered and then the 26 sides who automatically qualify for the group stages will be locked in.

Napoli are already certain of being Pot One in the draw because they are the champions of Italy, while the others will be the league winners of England, Spain, Germany, France, Portugal plus the winners of the Champions League in 2022-23 and the Europa League too.

Milan were Pot One for the last draw having won the Scudetto, but this time they will be in Pot Three. Below is how the current arrangement looks:

Pot One

Manchester City (England)
Barcelona (Spain)
Napoli (Italy)
Bayern Munich (Germany)
Paris Saint-Germain (France)
Benfica (Portugal)

Pot One or Two

Inter (Italy)

Pot One or Three

Feyenoord (Netherlands)

Pot Two

Real Madrid (Spain)
Manchester United (England)
Borussia Dortmund (Germany)
Atlético (Spain)
Leipzig (Germany)
Porto (Portugal)
Arsenal (England)

Pot Two or Three

Shakhtar Donetsk (Ukraine)

Pot Three

Salzburg (Austria)
Milan (Italy)
Lazio (Italy)
Red Star (Serbia)

Pot Three or Four

Real Sociedad (Spain)
Celtic (Scotland)
Newcastle (England)

Pot Four

Union Berlin (Germany)
Lens (France)

  1. Yea as I mentioned in another article, pot placement can help your run into the UCL. It’s why we had a good run this year (won the Scudetto last yr). We didnt have to face two very good teams..next year we’ll have it tough.

    1. Nope, Mancity and Newcastle in the dame group is not possible. Both teams are from the same country / league

      1. Oh yeah that’s right, my bad.
        But the possibility of being in a same group with madrid and city is really scary

  2. Effectively we will create the group of death unless we were amazingly lucky.
    So we won’t have an easy run like this year

  3. Errm you forgot one team to mentioned Oli, either Roma or Sevilla will go to Pot One for winning Europa League.

  4. Did Benfica, Inter and Porto, not qualify for the latter stages? While drawn in tough group, from Pot 3?🤔 Being in Pot 3, has little to do with, our fortunes..

    1. Inter had to play bundesliga and laliga champions and had to be at their best to make it out. Not ideal at all

      1. It’s impossible for any club, to face both La Liga and Bundesliga Champions, in Group Stage.. As both of them, are allocated in Pot 1 for Group Stage draw..
