Milan are Champions League seeds

Milan will be seeded in the Champions League group phase draw for next season along with the likes of Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

The Rossoneri were in the second pot last term, which is why they were paired with Barça in the first round.

However, they are now 12th in the UEFA rankings and in the top seeds because Inter, Atletico Madrid, Lyon and Liverpool all failed to qualify for the competition.

At this time the top seeds are Barcelona, Manchester United, Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Porto and Milan.

There is one slot left, currently held by Valencia, but Chelsea will take it if they win tonight’s Champions League Final against Bayern Munich.

Juventus are only 43rd in the UEFA rankings, while Udinese are 58th and go through the preliminary round.
