Leicester join Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus as top Champions League seed

Leicester City have been placed as the top seeds, alongside European powerhouses Real Madrid, Barcelona and Juventus, for next season's Champions League campaign.

UEFA recently revised their rules regarding seedings and it was revealed that, rather than on the basis of coefficients, the champions from the top seven European Leagues and the winners of the Champions League from the previous season would be going directly into Pot 1.

This means that surprise Premier League champions Leicester have been placed alongside the likes of Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Benfica, Paris Saint-Germain, CSKA Moscow and Real Madrid as the top seeded sides heading into the 2016/17 Champions League season.
