The outcome of Arsenal’s Champions League group stage draw has already been determined.

Before the draw later this month, a portion of Arsenal’s fate regarding the group stage draw has already been decided.

After an outstanding league campaign in which they finished second in the Premier League, the Gunners will compete in UEFA’s top competition this year. The men of Mikel Arteta can now anticipate competing at the highest level despite spending the majority of recent seasons in the Europa League.

The Gunners’ three group stage opponents will be revealed on August 31 during the Champions League group stage draw.

Arsenal, however, already knows which seeding pot they will be in. UEFA coefficient points, which are based on European performance over the previous five years, are used to determine the pots. If the team’s home country’s coefficient points total is greater than zero and there has been no European performance, then twenty percent of those points may be used.

Due to those placed knowing the winners of each of UEFA’s top seven leagues as well as the winners of the Europa League, in this case Sevilla, pot one was always going to be out of reach for Arsenal. In light of this, pot 2 represents the Gunners’ best chance, and that is where they failed.

Arsenal, however, has the fewest coefficient points of any team in pot two, which is interesting but won’t affect the draw in any way. The Gunners have 13,000 more points than Shakhtar Donetsk, the top-placed pot three team, and they hope to boost their total with a strong European showing this year.

 

Newcastle United is in pot 4, which is not surprising considering they haven’t played in Europe in the last five years, while Manchester United is also in pot 2. Arsenal cannot play an English team; instead, they will be paired with a team from each of pots 1, 3, and 4.

Only Young Boys and those who advance from the qualifiers have not yet been seeded. Braga, who already won their qualifier, or Rangers, PSV, or whoever wins that one, will be in pot three. PSV, Braga, and Rangers each have 37, 000 points.

together with boys under 18. It will also be necessary to seed one of Antwerp, AEK Athens, Rakow, or Copenhagen. The only teams that could advance to pot three are Young Boys and Copenhagen; the other teams, if they qualify, would go into pot four.
