The Champions League draw will take place today, October 1st, at 5pm CEST at the RTS Studios in Geneva.
Here are some quick things for you to know:
- Real Madrid are in Pot 1 as La Liga champions
- The group stages will begin on October 20th, and conclude on December 9th
- The Champions League final will take place on May 29th, 2021, in Istanbul
- Real Madrid can not be drawn with any other team from La Liga in the group stages
- Real Madrid can not be drawn with any other team from Pot 1 in the group stages
Here are the pots:
Pot 3: Dynamo Kiev, Salzburg, Leipzig, Inter Milan, Olympiacos, Lazio, Krasnodar and Atalanta.
Pot 4: Lokomotiv Moscow, Olympique Marseille, Brugge, Borussia Mönchengladbach, Istanbul Başakşehir, Midtylland, Rennes and Ferencváros.
Odds are Real Madrid will draw at least one difficult opponent from Pot 2, while hoping to avoid another in the form of Leipzig, Inter, or Atalanta from Pot 3.
We’ll keep you updated on the draw later today, and Kiyan Sobhani and Lucas Navarrete will discuss it on tonight’s podcast which will come out exclusively for our Patrons.
