European powerhouses like Real Madrid, Manchester City, and Barcelona will all be excited to see who they will play in the group game. At the Champions League draw event, the 32 teams from the four pots of eight will be split into eight groups of four.

The Champions League 2022-23 group stage will feature a total of 32 football teams. 26 clubs are given direct entry into the draw. Six more clubs will join them following wins in qualifiers.

Qualified teams are divided into four pots: Pot 1 contains the title holders, the Europa League winners and the champions of the top six national leagues based on UEFA country coefficients. The remaining three pots are populated according to a team’s UEFA club coefficient.

The final members of Pot 3 and Pot 4 will be decided following the play-off fixtures before the draw takes place. Two teams from the same football association cannot be drawn into the same group in the draw.
