The Champions League draw starts at 7pm United Kingdom time on Thursday, with Liverpool now knowing their pot.

Holders Real, Europa League holders Atletico Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Lokomotiv Moscow complete Pot 1. The Black and Yellows will be in pot two alongside Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Napoli, Roma, Porto, Benfica and Shakhtar Donetsk.

In a matter of hours, Inter will learn their Champions League group stage fate as the draw is made in Montecarlo, Monaco this afternoon. Last season's semi-finalists Roma are also in pot two, while fellow Serie A side Napoli boast Carlo Ancelotti, a three-time victor of the competition, as their new coach.

The new arrangement of the pots by UEFA means there's usually a group of death - think Tottenham drawing Real and Dortmund - so avoiding any of the big teams is always a major win in the competition.

Manchester City have launched the 2018/19 home kit! Shakhtar can not be paired in the same group as Lokomotiv as UEFA has ruled teams from Russian Federation and Ukraine must be kept apart.

The bottom pot can usually be relied upon to provide intrigue and this year is no different with the return of Inter to the Champions League. And Dortmund should have no problems beating Swiss club Young Boys either.




Last year's finalists will therefore be hoping for some good luck in today's draw and if things go their way they could end up with a favourable group containing Lokomotiov Moscow, Porto and Young Boys.

Real Madrid beat Sterling's former club Liverpool in the Champions League Final in 17/18 to claim their third consecutive European Trophy.

The Champions League draw is now settled after the last round of play-off games on Wednesday night.

Milos Degenek scored the goal to send Red Star into the Champions League group stage.

The draw for the pool phase begins at 8pm UAE time on Thursday at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.
