There's not a whole lot to fear really. Real and Bayern from pot 1. PSG from 2, thats about it.

Spartak
Porto/Sevilla
Maribor

No clubs from the same country can until the quarters, I think.

Bayern looks the worst pot 1 draw for Liverpool & Spurs.

It means they are odds-on (3/5) to draw a pot 2 side with serious £ (PSG) or CL pedigree (Barca or Atletico).

Though it'd remove the risk of getting Leipzig as a killer 4th pot draw.

Counterintuitively, drawing Real Madrid could end up being a decent draw for both (...as it lessens the chance of being drawn with a top-drawer second pot side)

Changing pot 1 to league winners only has made a mess of it. It's probably better to be in pot 2 than pot 1.
The worst pot 2 team, man Utd, have a higher coeff than 3 of the pot 1 teams and the best, Barca, is higher than 6 pot 1 teams.
The worst pot 1 team, Sp. Moscow have a lower coeff than 6 of the pot 4 teams.
