UEFA CL draw: Barcelona not seeded for the first time

Barcelona will not be top seeds for the first time in the Champions League draw and will be in a dangerous looking pot 2 with a number of strong sides.

The top seeds meanwhile are Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Juventus, Benfica, Monaco Spartak Moscow and Shakhtar Donestsk which form an arguably easier pot 2.

Monaco are in a position they have not been since since the 1994-95 season when under the old European cup format Barcelona were in a pot with Benfica, Spartak Moscow and Anderlecht while top seeds were Manchester United, Milan, Ajax and Bayern Munich.

The Catalan club are alongside Atletico Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla, Manchester City, Porto and Manchester United in an ominous looking group.

This season Barcelona will once again be in the second pot which could though in the end turn out to be an advantage.
