Bayern the benchmark

Bayern Munich are 4/1 co-favourites to retain the Champions League after demonstrating they were streets ahead of the rest last season.

Manchester City, the other co-favourites, could only reach the last eight before losing to Lyon last season. Their quest for their first European title begins in Group C, in which they face Porto, Olympiacos and Marseille.

Liverpool, champions of Europe for the sixth time in 2019, are 11/2 third favourites and have been drawn in Group D with Ajax, Atalanta and Midtyjlland of Denmark.

Last season’s runners-up PSG face Manchester United (30/1), RB Leipzig and Istanbul Basaksehir in a highly competitive Group H.

The other English representatives, Chelsea (16/1), are in Group E with Europa League winners Sevilla, Rennes and the Russian side Krasnodar. 

Elsewhere, record 13-time European champions Real Madrid (11/1) are in Group B with Shakhtar Donetsk, Inter Milan and Borussia Monchengladbach.

Barcelona (14/1), rebuilding under Ronald Koeman, are drawn in Group G against Juventus (16/1), Dynamo Kiev and Ferencvaros.
