Opinion: Why Chelsea Will Have a Mountain to Climb to Reach the Quarter Final of The Champions League Next Season

Chelsea has a large mountain to climb to reach the knock out stage of Champion's league next season.Chelsea enjoyed winning this year's Champion's league without realizing they would be grouped with jiants next season. During last season in champion's league Chelsea were viewed as weak opponents, every team wanted to play against them. However, they applied complex tactics and luckily won champion's league by beating Manchester city . The champion's league pots for next season were out. Teams that won major trophies like league titles, Uefa and Europa are placed in one pot.

The group stage pots list are highlighted below:

Pot 1



Atletico Madrid.

Manchester City.

Inter Milan.

Bayern Munich.


Sporting CP.

Pot 2

Real Madrid.



Paris Saint-Germain.

Manchester United.



Borussia Dortmund.

Pot 3

FC Porto.


Shakhtar Donetsk.

RB Leipzig.

FC Salzburg.



Zenit St Petersbu.

Looking at pot one there is hardly a weak opponent, since all teams in the pot won a trophy. In addition to that the Uefa has stated that the teams from the same league would not be drawn together. Chelsea's hopes of being given Manchester city, whom they are fond of defeating dies. They would have to win almost all their Uefa group stage games to qualify to the knock out stage. This is due to the fact that teams like Bayern Munich, Manchester city would win almost all their games. For Chelsea to be among the best two in the pot that would be selected to proceed to the knock out, they have to take 3 points from each team they play against.

If Chelsea are really good as they say they would have to prove it by qualifying to the quarter final next season.

Do you think Tuchel with his tactics will guide Chelsea to their second European glory next season?
