The gulf in money between the elite leagues compared to the second and third tier leagues is absolutely massive, without the odd exception the majority can no longer compete.

A group containing Juventus, BATE Borisov, HJK Helsinki and Sparta Prague really wouldn't set the pulse racing would it?

(Just using those teams as a random example btw)
Had a look at what it would look like in today's world. Top 32 divided into 4 pots are actually worse than your example

Shakhtar Donetsk

Barcelona           

Paris Saint-Germain       

Bayern Munich 

Juventus             

PSV Eindhoven

 

Pot 2

Viktoria Plzeň

Club Brugge

Galatasaray       

Young Boys        

AEK Athens       

Red Bull Salzburg

Dinamo Zagreb

Midtjylland        

 

Pot 3

CFR Cluj               

BATE Borisov

Legia Warsaw   

Red Star Belgrade           

Alashkert

Malmö FF           

Astana 

Rosenborg         

 

Pot 4

Ludogorets Razgrad       

Hapoel Be'er Sheva        

Olimpija Ljubljana           

Zrinjski Mostar 

APOEL  

Celtic    

Spartak Trnava 

Torpedo Kutaisi

 

Qualifying Round

Cork City             

Sūduva Marijampolė

MOL Vidi             

Spartaks Jūrmala             

Valletta

Sheriff Tiraspol

It would also include National Cup winners too and would still adhere to the UEFA co-efficients

Last season for example
TOP 6 leagues winners in Europe + CL and EL winner (pot 1)
Spain- Barcelona
England- Man City
Italy- Juventus
Germany- Bayern
France-PSG
Russia- lokomotiv
CL- Real
EL- Atletico

TOP 6 Cup winners in Europe + L winners of 7 & 8 co-efficient (pot 2)
Spain- Sevilla * runners up
England- Chelsea (FA Cup)
Italy-AC Milan *Runner ups
Germany-Frankfurt
France- Monaco- League cup runner up
Russia- FC Tosno (not sure who they are but they won the Russian Cup)
Portugal L- Porto
Ukraine L-Shakthar

Pot 3.

League Belgium- Club Brugge
League Turkey- Galatasaray
League Austria- RB Salzburg
League Denmark- FC Midtjylland
League- Netherlands - PSV
League-Greece- AEK
League- Croatia- Dinamo Zagreb
League-Czech R- Viktoria Plzen

Pot 4.
Rest of the Qualifiers
Let's say
Celtic
Young Boys
Cluj
BATE
Legia
Red Star
Malmo
Rosenburg

So in theory yes you could get a group with
lokomotiv,Frankfurt,AEK,BATE
hardly then most thrilling but you could get a group of
Real-Chelsea -PSV- Celtic

St Petersburg vs Minsk sounds like some game
4 down from away leg 
1 back at half time.
2 back and have a lad sent off
Force extra time.
Go behind on aggregate in extra time
Win on the night 8 1 to progress

Sean Dyche seemed very upbeat for a manager after last nights game. He looked like a man who wasn't that bothered that they were beaten. Only saw first 10 minutes of the game and Burnley were creating chances so how did the game go and why was he so laid back after the game. 
I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

They played very well RD , but the chances they missed were shocking , just hope Vokes plays for Wales on Thursday as I can't see him hitting a barn door at the moment .
 Burnley really took the game to the Greeks that's why he was happy .
Lansdowne Road debut aged 52 and 201 days .

Good chance for Celtic to start the group with a win tonight, although they would need to raise their game from last week.
 
Any Europa League highlights on terrestrial TV?
