Villa In Pot 4 For Uefa Cup Draw
Further explanation of the UEFA Cup draw having seen Vital Pompey's article.
The draw is made on Tuesday 7 October.
As explained earlier each team plays in a group of five both home and away. The top three of each group (8 groups) go through to the knock-out stages and are joined by the Champions League flops (8 teams) leaving 32 teams in the comp. (Yes, I know, good looking, charming AND tops at maths, really unfair mix of talent I have, no wonder you hate me so!)
Right, the draw:
Teams are allocated to one of five pots based on their UEFA rankings. Villa are in pot 4, which is nice. Now concentrate: the draw will consist of one team from each Pot being placed into each group. Teams cannot be drawn with clubs from their own country.
