Below it is assumed that the seeded teams of the 4th qualifying round qualify for the group stages.The pots are chosen from the UEFA coefficient for each team and also takes into account of league winners.

Leicester City as champions go into Pot A as will the Champions League winners. If Manchester City and Porto win their play-off games then they will go into Pot B.

Tottenham will most likely be in Pot C and will have two fixture against either Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Benfica, PSG, CSKA Moscow, Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid (Champions League winners in this pot.

Assuming Porto and Manchester City make it through qualifying we are then likely to have two fixtures against either Real Madrid or Atletico Madrid (Champions League runners-up in this group), Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Porto, Napoli or Bayer Leverkusen.

As it stands at the moment if the favourites go through each stage we could also then be drawn with PSV Eindhoven, Sporting Lisbon, Viktoria Pizen, Club Brugge, FC Salzburg, Celtic, APOEL Nicosia and Besiktas.The stars indicate teams in the qualifying stages and show which qualifying round they are in.

Leicester City will be drawn against either the Champions League runners-up, Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Porto (if win play-off), Napoli or Bayer Leverkusen from Pot B.
