Champions League draw 2017: Group stage rules and preview

The draw is made up of 4 pots and each group will feature a team from each pot.

As Europa Cup winners United find themselves in Pot 2 with Manchester City and importantly, big spenders Paris St Germain, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid. Either way, Spurs are nearly guaranteed to go up against one of the really big boys in the group stages. There are also some strong teams in Pot 3 like Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Napoli and Roma, which sets up some potential group of death scenarios.

Why Melania Trump Thanked Chelsea Clinton on Twitter
Her reaction came after Barron Trump was ridiculed for his choice of clothing by a conservative news media website. Barron moved into the White House in June with first lady Melania Trump after he finished his school year in NY .

Completed the qualifying stage of the Champions League 2017-2018. Then again, Chelsea's coefficient is too low for pot 1 because of the missed year, so our draw would've likely been just as stressful under the old seedings.

The first games will take place on Tuesday 12 and Wednesday 13 September, with the group phase concluding with matchday six on Tuesday 5 and Wednesday 6 December. United's worst draw would be Real Madrid from Pot 1, Napoli, who finished 3rd in Serie A and scored an impressive 94 goals in 2016-17 and Leipzig who were runners-up in the Bundesliga. That said, it's still pretty absurd to have teams like Barcelona, Atletico, PSG, and BVB in pot 2 when teams like Spartak, Shakhtar, Monaco, and Benfica are in pot 1. From Pot 3 they will be hoping for FC Basel and from 4, Apoel Nicosia of Cyprus.

The first of these will be available for free, with the others costing a fee. Do you think the game could run on Nintendo's system? Their premium games tend to come at a premium cost.

There are 32 teams in the draw, the 22 teams that automatically qualified from their domestic league position (Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester City are England's) and 10 that qualify via the play-offs (Celtic qualified last night, Liverpool are expected to qualify this evening). The draw will affect these odds however.
