    UEFA Champions League change of rules

    Since years ago, to do the draws of the 8 groups of the CL groups stage the teams were divided in 4 groups (4 pots), basically the 4 pots were ordered purely by the coefficients of the competing clubs.

    Now the rules changed for the next Champions League edition and 2015/2016 in the pot 1 we will see 7 League winners of the better leagues from Europe + the winner of the CL.

    As Barça and Juventus are in the final PSV Eindhoven (NED) win the right to stay in the pot 1.

    These will be the teams of the pot 1 for the next CL:
    FC Barcelona (ESP)
    Chelsea FC (ENG)
    FC Bayern München (GER)
    Juventus (ITA)
    SL Benfica (POR)
    Paris Saint-Germain (FRA)
    FC Zenit (RUS)
    PSV Eindhoven (NED)

    The other three pots will be set using the club coefficient rankings as before ( looking the 5 last years results in UEFA comptitions ).

    Repeat.

    A good defence is the best offense.
