With the group stages of the 2023/24 UEFA Champions League set to kick off in a short time, draws to place teams in groups took place today in Monaco.

Real Madrid were placed in Pot 2 of the draw, having failed to retain the La Liga and UEFA Champions League titles last season, and as such were staring at a tricky match-up.

The Merengues were alongside Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, FC Porto, Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United, and Arsenal in Pot 2, meaning they would not be drawn against any of them.

Barcelona and Sevilla, who were in Pot 1, were also not in question as teams from the same league cannot be paired together in the group stage. It leaves Los Blancos with Manchester City, PSG, Bayern Munich, SL Benfica, Feyenoord, and Napoli as possible opponents from Pot 1.

It is Napoli who were drawn against the Merengues in Group C.

Portuguese outfit SC Braga were allocated in the same group as Real Madrid from Pot 3.

Finally from Pot 4, Carlo Ancelotti’s men were drawn against German newcomers Union Berlin.

Group C: Napoli, Real Madrid, SC Braga, Union Berlin.

Draw in full:

Group A: Bayern Munich, Manchester United, FC Copenhagen, Galatasaray
Group B: Sevilla, Arsenal, PSV, RC Lens
Group C: Napoli, Real Madrid, SC Braga, Union Berlin
Group D: Benfica, Inter, RB Salzburg, Real Sociedad
Group E: Feyenoord, Atletico Madrid, Lazio, Celtic
Group F: PSG, Borussia Dortmund, Milan, Newcastle United
Group G: Man City, RB Leipzig, Crvena Zvezda, Young Boys
Group H: Barcelona, Porto, Shakhtar, Royal Antwerp

Real Madrid’s attacking unit has been crippled by the loss of Karim Benzema earlier in the summer, which was followed by the loss of Vinicius Jr due to injury.

Although Vinicius has returned, there is much left to be desired from the Madrid frontline as we progress through to the season.

Real Madrid, though, are waiting on the arrival of Endrick. The young Brazilian is set to join the Real Madrid squad in the summer of 2024 when he turns 18.

Real Madrid impressed by Endrick

Endrick has already started his preparation for his pending move to Santiago Bernabeu, having performed exceptionally well in his native Brazil this year.

The youngster is constantly working on his game, in order to further improve himself as an attacker. It has left Real Madrid quite happy and eager for his arrival, reports Fabrizio Romano.

The journalist claims that Real Madrid have been keeping close tabs on everything Endrick has been doing, on and off the pitch, at Palmeiras.

And they have received very good reports on the 17-year-old, with the club impressed by how he is putting efforts to improve himself both performance-wise and in other facets.

Despite there being some question marks over his performances, the teenage forward is starting to showcase his potential, having scored five goals in five starts for Palmeiras.

Endrick also learning new languages

Endrick is not only just working on his performance. In fact, the Brazilian is also learning other languages in order to quickly settle into life in Spain.

The youngster can speak Portuguese, but he may have to master Spanish during his time at Santiago Bernabeu.

As mentioned earlier, Endrick can already speak Portuguese, which should go a long way in helping him team up with fellow Brazilians Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo.

Even Eder Militao can speak Portuguese, which should make it easier for Endrick to adapt to life in Spain, at least for the next year or so.
