Tottenham Hotspur fans might be sweating ahead of the
Champions League group stage draw, which takes place tonight.
Spurs finished third in the Premier League last time out, ensuring they are in the competition for the third consecutive campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur fans chant at Wembley last season
In 2017/18, Spurs were given a tough draw for the first phase, facing
Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund, as well as APOEL Nicosia.
It didn’t end up being too difficult though as Mauricio Pochettino’s men not only beat all three sides on home soil, they topped their table.
Juventus ended their participation in the competition, although they will consider themselves unlucky to have been knocked out in the round of 16.
For this year’s contest, the pots have now been decided but what would the worst-case scenario be for Tottenham? We’ve picked out the teams fans might want to avoid below.

Champions League draw: Is this Manchester United’s best-case scenario?
Pot 1 – Barcelona
Tottenham Hotspur have been truly outstanding over the last four years and while they beat a down on their luck Real Madrid last-term, a full strength Barcelona could really give them some trouble. Lionel Messi at Wembley under the floodlights would be one helluva sight for supporters, though.
Pot 3 – Monaco
Now a blend of youth and experience, Leonardo Jardim’s side have had to do more work in the transfer market this summer to build a competitive squad. They still have the likes of Radamel Falcao, Kamil Glik, and Danijel Subasic, but now they have got Pietro Pellegri in, along with World Cup star Aleksandr Golovin.
Pot 4 – Inter Milan
After a lengthy absence from the Champions League, Internazionale are in Pot 4 so will be the team everyone wants to avoid. Milan Skriniar and Stefan De Vrij in defence, Radja Nainggolan and Ivan Perisic in midfield, and Mauro Icardi in attack, they will be tough opponents – and then you have to try and beat Samir Handanovic between the sticks!
