Possible group of death for Inter in Champions League
The long absence in the Champions League plus the underwhelming performances in Europa League will put Inter in the pot four next season. There is the possibility that Inter will be placed in the group of death but there is also the chance to find Lokomotiv Moscow, Basel and Ludogorets.
“The first pot contains the champions of Europe (Liverpool or Real Madrid), the winner of Europa League (Atletico Madrid) and the champions of the first six countries with the best coefficient. From the second pot, we have the 26 teams that are already qualified and it is based on the coefficient of that team: that of Inter (16) is only better than Hoffenheim (14.29).”
The UEFA ranking takes into consideration of the results in Cup competitions of the past five years. And the last time Inter were in the Champions League was in 2011-2012 and so it does not count.
