On Monday, Benfica will meet its rival in the third qualifying round for the European Champions League.
The draw is scheduled for 11 am, and a lot of potential opponents are decided, albeit in a conditional way, as they may rely on duels in the second qualifying round, which has not yet been played.
In any case, we recall the potential opponents of the team Jorge Jesus, who has seed status:
– Spartak Moscow
– PSV-Galatasaray match winner
It should be noted that Pachos de Ferreira and Santa Clara will also be drawn on Monday, but for the third qualifying round of the new UEFA League, with the Azorean team continuing to pass the second qualifying round, against Shkobe from the north. Macedonia.
As for the third qualifying round, the list of potential opponents of the Portuguese representatives is much wider, but it will be reduced: UEFA will form six groups of eight and a group of six, to speed up the draw. This distribution will be revealed before the draw itself, after which a ‘key’ will be drawn which will be applied to all combos, thus defining the duels.
This means that before the start of the draw, scheduled for 13 hours, the pool of potential opponents will be reduced.
