Milan and hoffenheim is the nightmare scenario.

Don't mind one of those but not both, being us though that's what we'll probably get!

Would have to play our best 11 in those 4 so could cock up our league plans

Fingers crossed for a 'fair' draw

We got

FC Salzburg
Everton
1899 Hoffenheim
FC Zlin

That 'Everton' team might be quite tough..... ;)

Tough. Second hardest teams we could have got, praying for a minnow in pot 4

So that's the 7th highest ranked team from pot 1, 2nd highest in pot 2 (us), 2nd highest in pot 3 and 4th highest in pot 4.

Nice one.

Lyon 7th? No surely not, must be higher

Below Arsenal, Atletico, Villarreal, Zenit, Lazio and Kiev in the Euro Club Index.

Oh really? Fair enough

Altanta finished 4th in Serie A last season......4th?!?!

We could be in trouble, that is a very hard group

They were the suprise package last season, but they have lost two of thier best players in Franck Kessie and Andrea Conti to AC Milan this summer.

They replaced Kessie with Marten de Roon from Middlesbourough which might give you an idea of their standard.

Christ yeah they did really well, still think they'll be a challenge though.

Would have preferred to have fixtures where we could rest some of the starters as it may tell later on in the season but nevermind, it's a good challenge
