Portugal have three teams in the group stage of this season’s Champions League, but after today’s draw it will need some against-the-odds results for them to survive in the competition beyond Christmas, especially FC Porto and Benfica.

The Dragons have a particularly tough group, going head-to-head with three heavyweights in Atlético Madrid, Liverpool and AC Milan in Group B. Benfica do not have it much easier, with the Eagles drawn alongside Bayern Munich and Barcelona, as well as Dynamo Kiev.

Sporting were placed in Pot One as champions of Portugal and were rewarded for being top seeds with a less daunting task. The Lions will lock horns with Borussia Dortmund, Ajax and Besiktas in what appears a well-balanced Group C.

Unfortunately, not the best day for our Portuguese clubs.

Although the task was always difficult, Pacos and Santa Clara have fallen in the conference playoff.

Porto has one ugly group, but given they generally show up to this competition I am confident they’ll be in the running for top spot!

Sporting got a favourable draw. They can really have a go at it to make it to the knockout rounds.

Benfica a group is not pretty. Add to that JJ and Benfica general record in the champions league and things don’t look great. Plus Bayern could possibly be the one team I never want to face! But as a Benfica fan, I’ll put on my Red coloured glasses and think ‘we’ve got this’!



Also hope Braga the best in the Europa league!
