Manchester United's Possible Champions League Opponents Revealed
Manchester United will find out their Champions League group stage opponents on Thursday - but we can already take a look at the seedings for the draw.
Valencia, Liverpool and Viktoria Plzen's seedings are still unknown and PAOK vs Benfica, PSV Eindhoven vs Bate Borisov and Red Bull Salzburg vs Red Star Belgrade will take place this Wednesday night.
Other than these, every team knows which pot group they are in.
Man United are in the pot with Premier League rivals Spurs and they will find out their seedings on Thursday.
Manchester City share a pot with Champions League and Europa League winners, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.
But what's the best case scenario for the Red Devils? They would either have a group with Porto, Ajax and AEK Athens, but they could face a group consisting of Real Madrid, Monaco and Inter Milan.
It will sort itself, as this season we will win the Champions League, FA Cup and League Cup as well as getting Relegated and then take the Championship by storm next season with more Global Partners than there are Global Companies. Bring it on.- chunky :flag_ye: (@chunky_mufc) August 28, 2018
Forget trophies, Champions League qualification is all that matters to the Glazers to maintain revenue streams. Woodward said as much to investors in May. "Playing performance doesn't really have a meaningful impact on what we can do on the commercial side of the business." #mufc- Ciaran Kelly (@MENCKelly) August 24, 2018
Jose Mourinho has guided United back into the Champions League, won three trophies, finished second last season and has won more trophies in the last 3 seasons than Spurs and Liverpool combined in the last 15 years. A bit of perspective is needed. #mufc- United Xtra (@utdxtra) August 28, 2018
