Distribution of the 2022-2023 Champions League Pot Drawing: Real Madrid,
DISTRIBUTION of the 2022-2023 Champions League pot draw will be discussed in this article. The European Football Federation (UEFA) has found 26 teams that have qualified for the 2022-2023 Champions League.

Although not even 32 teams, UEFA has been able to divide 26 teams into four pots. Later, each pot contains eight teams.
Pot 1 contains the Champions League and Europa League winners for 2021-2022, plus the domestic competition winners in the six highest European competitions. They are Real Madrid (Champions League), Eintracht Frankfurt (European League), Manchester City (English League), AC Milan (Italian League), Bayern Munich (German League), PSG (French League), FC Porto (Portugal) and Ajax. Amsterdam (Dutch League).
So, why is the Spanish League not included in the six highest European competitions? Since Real Madrid won the Spanish League and Champions League, Los Blancos – the nickname of Real Madrid – took their share of the Champions League champions.
Then, the Spanish League quota was given to the Dutch League. As a result, the 2021-2022 Dutch League champions, Ajax Amsterdam, rose to pot 1.
So, what about the inhabitants of pots 2, 3 and 4? The holders of pots 2, 3 and 4 are ranked by coefficient in European club competitions in the last five years. If you look at the existing scheme, Real Madrid and Liverpool, which are finalists of the 2021-2022 Champions League, are potentially one group.
