Ronaldo's Juventus drawn against Man Utd in Champions League

Ings chose to leave Liverpool in order to gain happiness by playing regularly having struggled to cement a first-team place at Liverpool following serious knee injuries

Juventus will face Manchester United in the Champions League group stage this season, giving Cristiano Ronaldo a chance to play against his former team.

Some also might have more sympathy for Dutch champs PSV, who also came through a playoff, and find themselves in the very tough Group B alongside Barcelona, Tottenham and resurgent Inter Milan.

Liverpool, the runner-up last season, was the toughest third-seeded team and landed with Paris Saint-Germain, Napoli, and Red Star Belgrade in Group C.

Last season's winners Real Madrid, who have won the competition for the past three years, are in Group G with Roma, CSKA Moscow and Viktoria Plzen. The Spanish giants will also face Swiss champions Young Boys.

"I expected a hard group, we have a hard group and that's what the Champions League is all about", Klopp told UEFA, with Liverpool hosting PSG in their first game on September 18.

Teams from the same country could not be drawn together on Thursday, and teams from Ukraine and Russian Federation were also kept apart due to ongoing political tensions. We expected him to come but then, a couple of hours before, Juve told us he wouldn't." l'll only say this: "there was a vote by 55 journalists and 80 Coaches, so they decided the victor and therefore the result must be accepted.

Liverpool met Red Star Belgrade in the last 16 of the European Cup in 1973-74, with the Reds losing both the home and away legs.

Major Club Honours Last Season: UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, Spanish Super Cup, FIFA Club World Cup . Ronaldo had 15 goals in 13 UCL matches en route to a Real Madrid Champions Cup victory over Liverpool .

While those sides will be favourites to progress to the last 16 from Group H, they will have to be wary of Valencia, with the Spaniards returning to the group stage for the first time in three years.

Modric - who also won the Golden Ball at the World Cup in Russian Federation after leading Croatia to the final - added: "As I already said, I am really happy to be here".

"We can not hide the fact that we are among the favourites this year", Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta said. But Dortmund have the Champions League experience although they have a new team with some new players.

Carlo Ancelotti, who became coach of Napoli in the close season, will return to the French capital, where he led PSG to the title in 2013.

"Manchester City are a massive challenge for us", said Hoffenheim coach Julien Nagelsmann. Benfica are the strongest team of the remaining three while Ajax could potentially provide enough issues to get the results they need.

Group A: Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Monaco, Club Brugge.

Lokomotiv Moscow, seeded in the top pot as Russia's champion, will play Porto, Schalke and Galatasaray in Group D.
