Manchester City director: Tottenham, Liverpool have much more hard draw

Champions League draw

Mauricio Pochettino's side will face Barcelona in mouth-watering Group B encounters, while PSV Eindhoven and Inter Milan will also pose a threat in Group B.

They drew Real Madrid, CSKA Moscow, and Viktoria Plzen in a group that they should be able to advance out of.

Cross-city rivals Manchester United will take on Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys in a group that will prove hard to get out of whilst Spurs will face Barcelona, Inter Milan and PSV Eindhoven in a well-balanced group.

Group F has two teams that have recently faced each other in the Champions League group stage, Manchester City and Shakhtar Donetsk.

"He comes with a Juventus shirt, he went to Juventus to win the Champions League, he comes to Old Trafford to score goals and to win the match, but Old Trafford likes him and Old Trafford will always react in a positive way to him, which is a great thing".

He finished as the elite Premier League's top scorer with 32 goals - a record tally in a 38-game top flight campaign.

Group E: Bayern Munich, Benfica, Ajax, AEK Athens.

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored in both of his previous Champions League appearances against Manchester United for Real Madrid in February and March 2013.

The European champions for the 13th time were showered in plaudits at the Champions League draw in Monaco on Thursday with Croatian talisman Luka Modric elected UEFA Player of the year and Real players landing a full house of positional awards.

His success here, after he was named the best player in the World Cup, confirms that he should be among the favourites to win the Ballon d'Or, a prize dominated by Ronaldo and Lionel Messi over the last decade. It's a well-known fact that Europe is the home to the best football leagues in the world and the UEFA Champions League features the top clubs and best players from across the world.

Coaches and journalists voted for the prize, with Modric easily beating out Salah and Ronaldo to collect the honour - he earned 313 points in the voting process compared to 223 for Ronaldo and Salah's 134.

David Beckham received the annual President's Award for his achievements on and off the field, including his charity foundation working with the United Nations agency for children, UNICEF.

"This year I can say is the best year of my career, collectively and individually". Before the season started it seemed like Serie A could have 4 teams in the round of 16. "We reached the final of the World Cup and even without winning it was historic".
