For the first time in six years, Inter Milan has returned to the Champions League after finishing fourth in Serie A.

The Nerazzurri qualified on the last day of the season after a 3-2 win at Lazio. Now Inter will get into the fray and hope for the same success they had in 2009-10 when they captured the treble — Scudetto, Coppa Italia and Champions League trophy.

Internazionale will enter the draw in the fourth pot which means they could see an uphill battle to get out of the group stage.

In the 2011-12 Champions League tournament, Inter won the group after winning three matches, drawing one and losing two. They were, however, knocked out of the round of 16 by Marseille on away-goals after Marseille netted one in a 2-1 loss at the San Siro in the second leg.

This year’s Champions League final will be held at the Estadio Metropolitiano.

Rules of the Draw

The groups will be made up of eight groups, with one team from each pot comprising each group. Teams from the same federation/country cannot be drawn into the same group (i.e. Inter and Roma cannot be drawn together even though they are in different pots). There are also rules about spreading out clubs from the same country across the schedule.
