Our potential Champions League opponents

Pots confirmed

The UCL play-offs are complete, and the list of teams taking part in the 2022/23 Champions League is complete. While one of the favourites in Benfica had a comfortable experience in their play-off - and made it into pot 3 - Dinamo Zagreb were only able to secure their spot in the UEFA Champions League in extra time against Bodo/Glimt.
