What could be - Champions League draw

The draw for the Champions League groups happens later, but looking over the pots and there are some intriguing potential match ups.

Chapeau 1 Chapeau 2 Chapeau 3 Chapeau 4
Chelsea Valence CF Olympiakos Celtic Glasgow
FC Barcelone Benfica Ajax Amsterdam BATE Borisov
Manchester United Chakhtior Donetsk Anderlecht Dinamo Zagreb
Bayern Munich Zénith Saint-Pétersboug Juventus Turin CFR Cluj
Real Madrid Schalke 04 Spartak Moscou Malaga
Arsenal Manchester City Paris SG  Borussia Dortmund
FC Porto Braga Lille Montpellier
AC Milan Dynamo Kiev Galatasaray Nordsjaelland

Of course looking at it from the PSG perspective, one could see a group of Barcelona, Manchester City, PSG and Dortmund...yikes. I think the best group for the Paris club would be Porto - Braga - Nordsjaelland....

One interesting note, Montpellier, the defending Ligue 1 champion, has the second lowest coefficient. No surprise. I would not be surprised if they ended last in their group, regardless of who they get drawn with.

What groupings would you like to see?
