Ideally
Spartak Moscow
Anderlecht
Qarabag

Not ideal
Real Madrid
Napoli/Roma
Leipzeg

The travel of my 'ideal isn't great though - going to eastern Europe is a pain in ass so a draw of Benifca, Anderlecht and Celtic/Feyenoord might be ok

Ideally you want Benfica from Pot one. Easy travel and looks the least threatening

Nothing to moan about except maybe the trip to Moscow. Hopefully we get it as early as possible.

Pretty good draw other than getting a longtrip to Moscow for the Pot 4 team!

City and Liverpool virtually got byes. Chelsea have a toughish group. Spurs drew the short straw but fans will at least will get to see Bale again ;)

I think all the English teams bar Spurs will be fairly confident of getting out of their groups.

Moscow is a stinker for the travel but we should top that group regardless.

A couple of tasty fixtures this year already - Juventus v Barca will be good

Yeah, except for the Moscow trip, we couldn't have asked for a better draw. But, I don't think I'll get tired of seeing us play at Luzhniki Stadium! :laugh:

As for Benfica and Basel, the revenge for 05-06 and 11-12 is truly on! (well, we already played Benfica the following year IIRC, but still).

Poor Spurs though, but if they make some decent signings (Aurier seems like it could be done deal), then its possible they can finish second in the group ahead of Dortmund particularly considering Dembele is off to Barcelona now.

Chelsea also have a fairly tough group but think they'll make it through in the end.
