Manchester United are one of 32 teams vying for Champions League glory this season.
The draw takes place this evening, but as per usual, as simulator has been done. This time by Italian giants AS Roma.
In their simulator, United have been handed a horrendously difficult draw, with the Red Devils going up against FC Barcelona, Ajax and Inter Milan; in our current form, that’d be an extremely difficult group to qualify from.

Under the new rules where the champions go into pot one, that immediately means the Red Devils will go up against either Atletico Madrid, Barca, PSG, Lokomotiv Moscow, Real Madrid, Bayern, or Juve. So you know you’re going to get at least one immensely difficult team.
The third-place sides are all elite sides, too. As the old saying goes, there are no easy groups in the Champions League any more. Whoever we get matched up with will certainly fancy their chances against us.
As always, it’s about winning your home games and making that advantage count.
Bear in mind that this is just a simulator, the real thing is still to come later this evening, so it could potentially get better (or worse…) we’ll just have to see.
