As every single Liverpool of note will know already, we’ve qualified for the Champions League after a top four finish, providing we navigate a two-legged play-off in August…
We’re going to be seeded for the draw, thankfully, meaning we’ll avoid top teams like Napoli…
In fact, we’re going to be strong favourites whoever we come up against.
These are the eleven sides we can possibly draw.
Sporting Lisbon (If Ajax don’t win Europa League)
2nd place Greek side (currently PAOK)
A battle with CSKA Moscow will be very tough, and Besiktas is a horrible place to go as well.
Nice would be a mighty interesting tie due to Mario Balotelli being their top striker, while Hoffenheim have impressed in Germany this season.
In truth though, if we can’t beat the sides listed, we don’t deserve to be in the Champions League group stages anyway…
Bring it on!
