English Sides

The reigning champions Liverpool have been drawn in Group E alongside Napoli. The Reds faced the Serie A side in the same stage last season and narrowly beat them in the final group game to edge through to the knockout stages thanks to a goal from Mo Salah. As well as Napoli, Liverpool will also head to Austria to face Red Bull Salzburg and Belgium to face Genk.

Premier League winners Manchester City have been handed a kind draw and will face Shakhtar Donetsk, Dinamo Zagreb and Atalanta in Group C. Similar to Liverpool, City also faced Ukranian side Shaktar in the same stage last season, defeating them in both occasions.

Chelsea have also been dealt a kind draw. They will face last season’s semi-finalists Ajax in Group H, as well as Valencia and Lille.

Tottenham have been given the tough task of facing German champions Bayern Munich in Group B. They last faced the Bundesliga champions in 1983. Furthermore, Tottenham have also drawn against Olympiacos and Red Star Belgrade, both tough away trips.

Notable Draws

Thirteen-time winners Real Madrid will face Paris Saint-Germain in Group A, as well as Club Brugge and Galatasaray. Los Blancos were knocked out in the Round of 16 last season.
