Champions League pots confirmed

The seeds for next season’s Champions League are confirmed, with each of Serie A’s top four in the four pots.

Juventus are in Pot 1 after winning the Scudetto for the eighth straight season, while Napoli’s runners-up finish puts them in Pot 2.

Inter may have finished below Atalanta, but their better club coefficient sees them in Pot 3.

The Dea, therefore, must settle for the fourth and final pot when the group-stage draw for 2019-20 takes place in August.

Roma’s failure to qualify for the Champions means Tottenham Hotspur or Liverpool will replace them in Pot 2.

The winner of Saturday’s Final will go into the first pot, alongside the League champions of Italy, Spain, England, Germany, France and Russia, as well as Chelsea or Arsenal – both of whom will contest the Europa League Final.

The 26 teams qualifying through League position and UEFA competitions will be joined by six sides competing in the playoffs.

Pot 1: Barcelona, Manchester City, Juventus, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain, Zenit Saint-Petersburg, Liverpool/Tottenham, Chelsea/Arsenal

Pot 2: Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Napoli, Shakhtar Donetsk, Liverpool/Tottenham.

Pot 3: Benfica, Bayer Leverkusen, Red Bull Salzburg, Valencia, Inter

Pot 4: Lokomotiv Moscow, Racing Genk, Galatasaray, RB Leipzig, Atalanta, Lille
