Champions League Draw: Easy For Man Utd & Liverpool, Tough For Chelsea & Spurs

Inter Milan's Argentinian forward Mauro Icardi scored twice in the 3-1 victory at Roma

José Mourinho's United side were drawn in Group A which includes CSKA Moscow, runners-up in last seasons Russian Premier League, and are set to face them on Tuesday 27 September. The group consists of Bayern Munich, PSG, Anderlecht, and Celtic.

It is where you want to be and I am sure that this season Brendan will be desperate to go one further and aim to still be involved in European football after Christmas.

"I played a few times against CSKA, I played against Basel too, I know the places".

Tottenham will take confidence from their run to finish as Premier League runners-up last season and are making clear progress under Mauricio Pochettino.

Tottenham Hotspur was handed undoubtedly the hardest draw of the five English clubs in the competition. That is Barcelona's only UCL win over Juventus in five meetings.

Juventus, in fact, have been drawn with Barcelona, Olimpiacos and Sporting CP, whilst Napoli will have to travel to Manchester to face City.

8 groups with 4 teams each were formed today, and we have to say that a lot of excitement is in waiting for us.

Scottish champions Celtic are also in a challenging pool, against Bayern Munich, Paris St. Germain and Anderlecht in Group B. "And Anderlecht cannot be underestimated as Belgian champions". "We accept this challenge", Bosz said.

Then another tough group is group C which features, Chelsea, Athletico Madrid, AS Roma and Qarabag, who are considered the weaker team in the group.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho admits his side find themselves in "a risky group" following this week's UEFA Champions League draw.

City escaped Europe's elite clubs in Thursday's draw and will face Napoli, Shakhtar Donetsk and Feyenoord in Group F, but Bergiristain said he holds the utmost respect for their opponents.

The man who makes Madrid tick, Modrić was his usual metronomic self throughout the club's historic 2016/17 campaign. Defending champions Real Madrid will begin their journey to win Champions League three consecutive times. In 2016, the two squads played to two 2-2 draws, with Dortmund ultimately winning the group.
