I'm amazed that Utd are currently seeded 1st in Europe over Barca.

Who ever get Dortmund will get a very strong side, good players and very dangerous going by last season. I think they can make it to the second round and make thier home ground a fortress.

I would love to get Milan in the group stages, make it tasty and get a big name in the group stage.

Aye, slot of hype around this Dortmund side, obviously the team to avoid in pot 4

Looking at it it does have the potential for some mouthwatering ties in the groupstage

Utd are seeded first so they get an easy draw as they always do Wink

Strange that Arsenal should be pot1 even though they had to pre-qualify - but I'm not complaining!

I would love that group for city, as long as they didn't come out of it as qualifiers, then we would never hear the end of it

As long as we don't get Villareal I'll be happy, last 4 times we've played them have all been 0-0.

I think we might get

United
Benfica
Lille
Zagreb

Lille will be a tough team I think.

It is a strange year isn't it. French Champions in pot 3 and German champions in pot 4.

Chelsea Valencia could be tasty, especially with Mata just signing for Chelsea

If Arsenal get that group unless they bring in new faces I reckon they could struggle

Pot seedings are based on the co-efficient ranking of the teams.

Barca and Milan drawn together, please let City come out of the next pot in that group, really shown if the money they have spent is worthwhile

Man Utd
Benfica
Basel
Otelul Galati???

What an easy group! Yahoo
18 points I would say there but the Benfica match away could be hard thought. How did the Romanian champions get to the Champions League??

Arsenal's group looks hard though.

Haha, its brilliant, couldn't have been better for us

City have a tough ask but I can see them coming through it. Chelsea have a tough group as well but should come out as winners

Arsenal is a funny one, on paper I would fancy them to go through with Dortmund, but unless they spend money I can see Dortmund and Marseille coming out of this group. I reckon you could almost pick the later knockout rounds as well looking at the draw

All 4 English sides to qualify from those groups

I like the look of the Citeh group though - some big names to draw attention but they'll still come through

The thing I can't understand is the press either keep saying (in previous years) that Man U have a really tough group coz someone like Rangers or Benfica are tough opposition, or (like this year) saying that their group is only as easy as other teams (Arsenal), but you compare the groups they've had throughout the last 10 years and there's no comparisson.

First time I've seen these, and I have to say City have a hell of a group. Napoli are no joke, Villareal have good CL experience and won't go down easily and Bayern are a traditional giant. I can see any of those four being capable of getting out of the group, definitely.

United have a stroll, Chelsea aren't going to be unduly ruffled and Arsenal should have enough to get a top 2 spot in their group.
