Barcelona face the possibility of falling into the "death" group in the Champions League next season, for the second time despite being crowned champions of the Spanish league.

The Spanish newspaper "Mundodeportivo" said that the features of the next season's edition 2023-2024 have become clearer with the end of most leagues in the old European continent.

Barcelona will naturally participate in the first tier, which means they will avoid facing Premier League champions Manchester City, Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich, French league champions Paris Saint-Germain, Portuguese league champions Benfica and Serie A champions Napoli.

It is expected that these teams will be joined by the winner of the Europa League title (Roma or Sevilla), and Inter Milan may join the first level if crowned the title of the current version of the Champions League when they meet Manchester City in the final on the tenth of June 2023 in Istanbul.

The second level is full of strong teams, in which there will be clubs Manchester United, Arsenal, Borussia Dortmund, Leipzig, Porto, Inter Milan (if they are not crowned in the Champions League) or Shakhtar Donetsk (if Inter are crowned champions), in addition to Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, who of course will not face Barcelona in the group stage in compliance with the regulations and regulations of the tournament that prevent facing two teams from the same country in the first round and in the final price stage as well (round of 16).

In the third level, there are inferior clubs at the moment but they will not be easy prey, namely Milan, Salzburg, Lazio, Red Star and Celtic, which have already secured their place in the third pot, and will be joined by Shakhtar Donetsk if Inter lose the title of the current edition.

The rest of the clubs are due to be completed after the end of qualifying for the group stage in August 2023, including Dinamo Zagreb, Glasgow, Rangers, Sporting Braga, Feyenoord Rotterdam and Young Boys, which will also be distributed into the fourth tier.

The fourth tier takes the most time to figure out all its teams, with Newcastle United, Union Berlin and Lance having secured their presence.

Therefore, the fall of Barcelona in the group of death again is a possibility strongly posed, the possibility of facing an English or German team of the second level and an Italian of the third level is very likely, and if he plays with a German team, the possibility of the presence of Newcastle of the fourth category is expected, according to "Mundo Deportivo".

The newspaper believes that the worst-case scenario awaits Barcelona is to play in a group where it is alongside Borussia Dutmund or Leipzig of the second level, and Lazio or Milan of the third level, with Newcastle being the last team of the fourth level.
