The 2023/2024 UEFA Champions League promises to be an incredible season of European football, featuring everything from heavyweights to underdogs. Each of the 32 teams included in the Group Stages offers a unique flair to the competition. We're ranking the Champions League 2023/24 from the least thrilling to the must-watch battles on the pitch. Let's see who makes it to the finals at Wembley Stadium in London

Group B: Sevilla, Arsenal, PSV Eindhoven, Lens

Rank: 8

Sevilla, the Europa League winners, and Arsenal, the Premier League runners-up, are expected to progress with ease, making this group relatively drama-free. While capable, PSV Eindhoven and Lens don't pose genuine threats to the leading pair, although the French side will be itching to prove their worth after last season's Ligue 1 second-place finish. 

Group H: Barcelona, Porto, Shakhtar Donetsk, Royal Antwerp

Rank: 7

said he believes this Barcelona squad, with three recent La Masia graduates, is the best he's coached. The Catalan giants may be the headline act, but their recent Champions League inconsistencies — no knockout round since the 2020/21 campaign — open the door for intrigue. However, Porto and Shakhtar Donetsk will likely be vying for second place, with 22/23 Belgian Pro League champions left trying to fit in. 

Group D: Benfica, Inter Milan, Salzburg,

Rank: 6

22/23 Champions League runner-ups Inter Milan is the clear favorite, but Benfica and Real Sociedad are no pushovers. Benfica, in particular, has gained ground in Europe's top tournament the last two seasons, appearing in consecutive quarterfinals. 

Salzburg, too, could act as a potential spoilers, making this group a solid mid-tier one in terms of excitement.

Group E: Feyenoord, Atlético Madrid, Lazio, Celtic

Rank: 5

With Atlético Madrid as the expected frontrunners, Lazio and Celtic will aim to give them a run for their money. Feyenoord has dark horse potential, making this group unpredictable but not the most thrilling.

With parity across the board, which second team makes it out of the group is anyone's guess.
