Ok, so we’re actually not worried who Liverpool draw in the Champions League. Big names mean fun away trips and huge occasions, which is the reason we love being in Europe in the first place.
But it’s still fun to speculate, as because we’re in Pot 3, it’s likely we’re going to have a theoretically difficult draw.
Below is the teams in each Pot. Remember, English clubs cannot be paired with each other.

The hardest potential group could look something like this:
Real Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Liverpool & Inter Milan
The Spaniards are three times consecutive champions and deserve to be regarded as favourites again, even without Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo. BVB will be a very tough away trip, although Napoli might be equally as tricky. Lastly, Inter had a big summer and are probably the strongest side in Pot 4.
The easiest group could look something like this:
Lokomotiv Moscow, Porto, Liverpool, Young Boys
The Russians are the only nice draw from Pot 1, while we thrashed Porto last season and would back ourselves to do so again. Young Boys are poor, but so are all the sides in Pot 4 bar Inter.
For the sake of absolutely nothing, here’s our predicted draw:
Bayern Munich, Napoli, Liverpool, Club Brugge!
