Benfica move into pot 2 of Champions League draw

Benfica have moved into pot 2 of the Champions League group stage draw at the expense of country rivals FC Porto. Porto's elimination at the hands of Krasnodar earlier this week have guaranteed that Benfica will be placed in pot 2 along with Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Tottenham, Napoli, Dortmund and Shakhtar Donetsk with either Ajax or Lyon earning the final ball in the pot. Benfica's chances of moving on to the Round of 16 have also increased as pot 3 would have seen the club face one of the clubs mentioned along with some of Europe's power house clubs.
The Champions League group stage games will commence in September.
