UEFA Unveils Group Stage Draws for 2018/19 Champions League Season


Draws for the group stage of the 2018/19 UEFA Champions League is out. It took place on Thursday, 30 August at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco, Spain.

This new season features more teams from Europe’s top five leagues and fewer representatives from the smaller ones, as none of the top seeds can play each other and teams from the same country will be kept apart in the group stage as well.

The 26 teams given direct entry to the group stage under the new competition system are joined by the six winners of the play-off ties.

The teams were split into four seeding pots. Pot 1 consists of the holders, the UEFA Europa League winners and the champions of the six highest-ranked nations. Pots 2 to 4 are determined by the club coefficient rankings.

No team can play a club from their own association and, based on decisions taken by the UEFA Executive Committee, clubs from Russia and Ukraine must not be drawn in the same group.

The last campaign was won by Spanish Giants, Real Madrid when they beat Liverpool 3-1 in Kiev in May. It was their third consecutive time of winning the trophy and 13th time overall.
